While imperialism is planning wars, the working class and people are mourning their dead.
The Secretariat of the Initiative of Communist and Workers Parties of Europe expresses its sincerest condolences with the families of the victims and its complete solidarity with the French people in relation to the deadly attacks in Paris.
The “Islamic State”, which assumed responsibility for the murderous attack, is a monstrous creation of the imperialist powers, the USA and its allies, like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar etc. It was born after the imperialist war and occupation of Iraq and “came of age” with the imperialist intervention of these powers in Libya and especially in Syria. It is now very well-known who these killers are protected, armed and supported by.
Today there is a real danger that the criminal attack in Paris will be used to manipulate the consciousness of the working class and popular strata, to push them into supporting actions that are contrary to the people’s interests: on the one hand for the increase repression, police-state measures, racism, xenophobia in Europe and the further growth of religious fundamentalism, restricting rights and liberties, and on the other hand for the reinforcement of the open imperialist intervention in the war in Syria with the aim of safeguarding the profits of the capitalists.
While imperialism is conducting and planning wars, the working class and people are mourning their dead.
Our peoples have experience, as has also been demonstrated in the past, as to how such acts are utilized in order to unleash new imperialist interventions and must look for those really responsible for these attacks, who are as guilty as their “execution squads”. Only in this way can the people organize their struggle effectively against the imperialist wars and interventions, which are being planned by NATO, the USA and the EU in the framework of the more general inter-imperialist contradictions.
