Prin (Greek: Πριν, meaning "Before") is a weekly newspaper, published in Athens and circulating nationwide. Prin is published by the New Left Current, although it is not strictly the newspaper of the party.


Prin started as a monthly magazine, published by members of the Communist Party of Greece. Shortly after the secession of several members of the Central Committee,[1] that led to the foundation of the New Left Current,[2] Prin was transformed into a weekly newspaper on 18 March 1990.[3]

  • Politics: Includes permanent columns and commentary on the current political situation
