The Communist Party of Malta takes a more cautious position on the Euphoria in Libya.
The Communist Party of Malta while ideologically always takes a position in favour of the people, on this issue, we appeal for a more cautious approach, about how things will evolve in Libya after Gaddafi, since the transition was not a peaceful one.
“Until today wherever there was a military intervention by NATO, the reverse affect occurred. This can be seen in the cases of Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The only issues that were resolved were the splitting of Kosovo from Serbia, as well as the taking over of Iraq’s natural resources by imperialism”.
The Communist Party of Malta reminds that the regimes of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, of Idi Amin in Uganda, the Shah of Iran, Taliban in Afghanistan were all created by imperialism, in order to bring down progressive governments. These regimes had to be eventually forcibly removed by the same western powers that had installed them. We augur that there will be no such repetition in Libya as imperialism always looked upon its own interest, far from social justice.
The Communist Party of Malta calls upon the Libyan Interim Government to respect the dignity of all African migrants in Libya, which up to now have never been respected. We also appeal for a secular, just and equal society.
