    UPG GalizaThe action undertaken by the machinery of the Spanish regime this Wednesday 20th September, taking the Catalan Government by storm and arresting senior officials, overstepped all democratic bounds and amounts to nothing less than a veritable coup against the Catalan institutions and devolved government. The Spanish State does not hesitate to use all means of force and duress at its disposal, including measures which are clearly illegal even according to Spanish legislation, in its attempt to deny the democratic will of the Catalan people to exercise its right to self-determination and achieve independence.

  • Anticommunism shall not pass: Joint statement by communist and workers parties

    comunistaThe Communist and Workers Parties denounce the anti-communist fiesta being organized by the Estonian Presidency of the EU, in the framework of the so-called “European Day of Remembrance for the victims of totalitarian regimes”- as the EU has been attempting in recent years to establish the 23rd of August. The anti-communist meeting aims to slander socialism and its unprecedented achievements for the workers, to falsify history, to anti-historically and unacceptably equate communism with the monster of fascism and its atrocities. The provocative identification of communism with fascism means exonerating fascism and the womb that gives birth to and nourishes it, the exploitative capitalist system. This is why, when communists are being persecuted and condemned and communist parties are being banned in a number of EU countries, at the same time honours are being bestowed on and pensions provided to the Nazi collaborators and their political descendants.

  • Communists condemn Minister Freeland’s violations of sovereignty of Venezuela

    comunistaThe Communist Party of Canada condemns the latest flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of Venezuela by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

    Going far beyond the bounds of diplomacy, Minister Freeland attacked the July 30 voting to elect a Constituent Assembly which will have powers to resolve the political crisis in Venezuela. The Liberal government’s claim that the election was “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”, and therefore illegitimate, is a lie. Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution outline the president’s right to initiate a National Constituent Assembly.

  • Letter of Sitaram Yechury to PM on the plight of farmers in India

    We are releasing the text of a letter written by Sitaram Yechury, CPI(M) General Secretary and Leader of the CPI(M) Group in Rajya Sabha, to the Prime Minister demanding introduction and passing of a legislation in the forthcoming Parliament session which not only confers on farmers the Right to Sell at MSP but also guarantees an automatic annual review of the MSP, which will be, at least, 50 per cent more than production costs.

    Dear Pradhan Mantri Ji,

    I am writing this letter to draw your attention to the plight of farmers across India, which has resulted in a high level of rural distress, including thousands of suicides by farmers in the past three years. There have been increasing protests by farmers in one state after another, which have been met by your silence and apathy while the state governments of your party have let the police lose on the poor farmers. Six farmers have lost their lives in police firing in Madhya Pradesh, many seriously injured. Meanwhile, many continue to commit distress suicides, the latest such tragedy occurring in the CM's own constituency.
