New Communist Party of Britain
The Communist Party of Poland, within the framework of the annual 19th International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties, circulated a Motion against the anticommunist persecutions at the expense of the CP of Poland
On March 31st, 2016 four cadres of the Communist Party of Poland were sentenced by the regional court of Dąbrowa Górnicza to 9 months of restricted freedom with obligatory social work and fines. The legal procedure at the expense of the CP of Poland and of its cadres that has been going on for two years will restart on the 27th of November with the charges of “dissemination of the communist ideology” in the Brzask newspaper and on the Party’s website. If the court finds them guilty, the charges are up to two years of incarceration.
At the same time, the CP of Poland is facing a new offensive from the Polish capitalist class and from the government party of “Law and Justice” (PiS), which is trying to illegalize the CP of Poland on the context that “the Program of the CP of Poland does not abide by the Constitution”.
The CP’s that participate in the International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties condemn the attempts to outlaw the Communist ideology in Poland. We denounce the persecutions against our Polish comrades. These persecutions, as well as the persecutions in other EU member-states, go hand in hand with the intensification of the anti-popular offensive, aim at equating Communism with the fascist monster; they aim at erasing the achievements of Socialism from the collective memory of the peoples.
100 years after the October Revolution, the peoples can and must draw conclusions from the anti-communist political positions of the EU and of the bourgeois governments that are becoming more intense. They must trust the Communists and demand the satisfaction of their modern needs, organizing their struggle against the capitalist system, the monopolies and their power.
All charges against the CP of Poland and its cadres have to be dropped immediately.
Hands off the Communists of Poland, the Communist ideology and their unrestricted action.
Solidarity with the CP of Poland!
Anti-communism shall not pass!
