The Communist Party of Malta condemns the killing of humanitarian activists

The Communist Party of Malta condemns without any reservation, the Israelis’ barbaric act of piracy against a civilian convoy flotilla that was taking humanitarian aid to Gaza. This attack was carried by the Israeli Armed Forces in International waters.

This murderous aggression left 19 peaceful civilians dead and scores of other persons wounded. This adds to the list another Israeli crime against humanity.

The Communist Party of Malta shows solidarity with the activists aboard these ships, and extends it condolences to the families of the victims who died in the Israeli attack.

The Communist Party of Malta rejects totally the Israeli arguments that this convoy was breaking international law and reiterates that, it is the Israeli State who has committed the illegality. To attack any ship in international waters is an act of piracy.

The Blockade that Israelis are enforcing on Gaza is also illegal, and is only supported by US imperialism and the EU. The Communist Party of Malta calls on the Maltese Government to follow other countries example and send back the Israeli Ambassador.

The Communist Party of Malta shows Solidarity with the ‘red shirt’ movement and their struggle for the emancipation of the working class, peasants and the poor people of Thailand .

“The conflict in Thailand represents the poor, who are the vast majority against the wealthy elite around the royal family and the military power. The people of Thailand are being forced into prostitution, cheap labour and massive exploitation by Thai puppets under the thumb of western imperialism.”

The Communist Party of Malta supports the ‘red shirt’ movement, who were using a peaceful strategy to unite the population to oust the Administration of Abhisit Vejjajiva, the British – born, Eton and Oxford Educated, puppet Prime Minister, previously installed on the command of the Royal Palace and the military top brass, aqfter a military coup.

“The Thai People are becoming consciously aware of the progressive stances achieved by Leftist Governments in various Latin American countries fighting against neoliberalism and US imperialism, that include Venezuela , Bolivia , Ecuador , Uruguay and others.”

“The European Union has not officially taken position against the use of force by the right wing military regime on the Thai population. This shows political bias on the side of the EU.”

Press Statement

International Communist Seminar (ICS) held in Brussels on the crisis and the action of the communist parties –

From May 14-16, 2010, 41 communist and workers parties from 37 countries gathered in Brussels for the 19th International Communist Seminar, hosted by the Workers' Party of Belgium. Among the participants were representatives of communist parties from three socialist countries: the Lao People's Revolutionary Party, the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Communist Party of Cuba.

The Seminar's theme was the “The consequences of the economic crisis and the intervention of communist parties”. The participants presented papers and held discussions on the deepening of the crisis of capitalism and about the concrete interventions of communist parties in the ongoing class struggles. A document with general conclusions on “The Communist Parties facing the deepening of the capitalist systemic crisis“ was formulated, discussed and adopted.

The Seminar sent a solidarity message to the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), just in time to be read before the massive, KKE-led protest rally on May 15 in Athens. Three specific resolutions were adopted at the Seminar, all three of them to express solidarity with countries, peoples and workers in struggle against imperialism and capitalism. A first one stresses solidarity with Cuba, a second one with the Palestinian and other peoples in the Middle East, and a last one with the mineworkers in the Russian city of Mezhdurechensk, victims of a mine accident and of State repression.

The Seminar participants agreed to organize next year's 20th International Communist Seminar from May 13-15, 2011 in Brussels. It will have as theme “The building and strengthening of the communist parties in times of a deepening capitalist systemic crisis”.

The Communist Party of Malta shows Solidarity with Bianca Zammit.

The Communist Party of Malta shows Solidarity with Bianca Zammit and other left wing activists that support the Palestinian Cause who are victims of the Israel Occupying Military Force in Gaza. Due to this illegal occupation, 20% of agricultural land in the Gaza strip is being used as a buffer Zone instead of agricultural purposes.

The Communist Party of Malta along with other Communists and left Parties condemn the brutal attacks that are being continually committed against the Palestinian population in Gaza who are suffering poverty and lack of basic services because of the total isolation that they are finding themselves in.”

“We deplore the European Parliament for not having a common stance on this issue, although we understand that the majority of the European Countries and Parliamentarians support Israeli Imperialism. We welcome the role and position taken by the United Left Block in the European Parliament to bring forward the Palestinian and Kurdish people cause.”

The Communist Party of Malta has always supported the Palestinian struggle and we agree with the ‘two state’ solution that is also endorsed by the Communist Party of Israel.

“We note that certain western countries have a hypocritical policy toward the Middle East issue. They are using two weights two measures as they have never condemned Israel as a ‘rogue state’ on its continuous non observance of UN resolutions, while on the other hand they rejected Palestinian Sovereignty by not accepting election results that gave Hamas the right to govern in the Gaza Strip.”

“We are appalled by the comments made by the Israeli Ambassador in Malta and the People of Malta should not accept any interference in our internal affairs.”

First of May Message from The Communist Party of Malta .

On the occasion of Worker’s Day, celebrated internationally, the Communist Party of Malta is sending this message to the working class.

“Presently the working class have lost much of their rights that used to benefit and is in a critical situation were it is difficult to defend themselves from the onslaught. This is all attributed to the Neo liberal politics that had its beginning during the era of Thatcher’s government in the UK and Reagan’s Administration in the US. With the fall of the Socialist system in Eastern Europe these administrations with their Right wing Ideology found it very easy to trample on worker’s rights.”

“Today the worker is being totally exploited in a massive competitive market by the introduction of precarious employment with no job security, low wages and no basic rights. The workers are also being denied the right of association with a trade union and the right to collective bargaining.”

The Communist Party of Malta believes that the first step workers should take is to reorganize them selves and reinstate solidarity that once existed amongst the working class.

“The worker should be conscious of the truth that led to this critical situation, were part of the blame can be attributed to the working class itself. This is due to alienation from workers’ solidarity and unity, were individual ideology took over and led to the triumph of neo liberalism that is now oppressing the same workers.

The Communist Party of Malta appeals to the working class to become once again a militant force as it predecessors have been during the 50’s and 60’s of the last century, were many of their rights were won by hard fought struggles during that era.

Workers should also distinguish their real class enemies. Presently these enemies militate in political parties that defend the interest of the upper social classes and the capitalists, to a detriment to the working people and their families. This could be noted by the fact that these political parties are not eager to defend workers from precarious employment.
