The Communist Party of Malta looks upon Freedom Day, as the day when the Maltese people gained an absolute sovereignty from British Colony. The same is happening in the Arab World today, where people are fighting against their pro-imperialist regimes, supported and in many instances imposed upon them, by the western powers. "The last foreign military base in Malta was dismantled in 1979 and then Malta embraced a policy of neutrality that was later enshrined in the Maltese Republican Constitution. The Communist Party of Malta calls on all politicians that embrace Malta’s policy on neutrality to push forward proposals for peaceful solutions and mediations, away from imperialist greed and interests, wars, and spread of weapons. Bloody conflicts will only bring misery, suffering, poverty and hunger on the populations.
"It is worth remembering that in 1997, our island served as a “bridge of peace” in the Palestinian crisis, when the former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat met David Levy the then Israeli Foreign Minister. in Malta, at a meeting of foreign ministers from the 15 countries of the European Union and 12 Mediterranean nations".
