The Weekly paper of the New Communist Party of Britain


Victory to the Donbas!

by New Worker correspondent

COMRADES were back on the streets of London to leaflet the Stop the War march that was part of a national “No to War in Ukraine” day of action on Sunday. The demonstration in London ended in a rally in Trafalgar Square addressed by Jeremy Corbyn, Lindsey German, Tariq Ali and other stalwarts from the peace movement. But although the speakers recognised the dangers of a nuclear conflict and understood that NATO’s aggressive expansion over the last 30 years had played a role in sparking the current conflict, some also called for an unconditional Russian withdrawal from Ukraine – which is also the demand of US imperialism and their lackeys.

But the call of the International Ukraine Anti-Fascist Solidarity movement in support of the anti-fascist forces of Donbas and their allies went down well with the protesters. Hundreds of copies of the joint statement signed by the New Communist Party together with the Consistent Democrats, Socialist Fight and Posadists Today were given out on the day. The statement was sent out with every copy of last week’s New Worker and has now been endorsed by the Communist Party of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
