Joint Statement: 28 Communist and Workers Parties condemn the imperialist aggression against Syria

In a joint statement, 28 Communist and Workers Parties from Europe condemn the escalation of the imperialist aggression against Syria. More specifically, the statement writes:

"The Communist and Workers Parties of Europe condemn the escalation of the imperialist aggression, the sharpening of the situation in Syria and the broader region after today's intervention of the US President Donald Trump on bombing Syria under the pretext of the use of chemical weapons, something that the USA have repeatedly done in the past. The danger of a generalized war is increased.

The Communist and Workers Parties express their internationalist solidarity to the people of Syria and the other people of the region, calling the working class, the popular forces to strengthen the struggle against imperialist interventions and wars, against NATO, USA, EU and their allies.

The people owe nothing in order to shed their blood for the interests of the monopoly groups, for the competition that is taking place for the control of the energy sources, transportation routes, control of markets and sharing of influence spheres.

The people have the right to live peacefully and they have the power to assert a society free of wars, crises, poverty and exploitation".
