The communist and workers’ parties that met on April 11, in Brussels, condemned the escalation of the imperialist aggressiveness and the sharpening of the situation in Syria and the broader region.
"The communist and workers’ parties express their internationalist solidarity to the people of Syria and the other peoples of the region, they call upon the working class, the people’s forces to reinforce the struggle against the imperialist interventions and wars, the NATO, the USA and the EU. At the same time, there’s an increasing risk for generalized war," a joint statement said.
"Peoples must not shed their blood for the interests of the monopoly groups, the conflict for the control of energy resources, the routes of transportation, the control of the markets and the distributions of spheres of influence. Peoples have the right to live peacefully and have the power to demand a society free from wars, crises poverty, and exploitation," it added.
