Call for the condemnation of the anti-communist persecution in Poland

Anti-communist persecution against the Communist Party of Poland continues. On 27th of November the court proceedings will restart. The judicial prosecution based on charges of propagating communist ideology in the “Brzask’newspaper and on the party’s website continues for two years.

This trial is part of campaign made by the government to illegalize the Communist Party of Poland.

This persecution is taking place simultaneously with the anti-communist policy of rewriting history and removing monuments and names of the streets associated with communism and workers’ movement from the public space.

We call for organising solidarity protests against the political persecution in front of Polish embassies all over the world on 27th of November.

Anti-communist represions in Poland were condemned by 67 parties that participated in the 19th International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties.

Motion against the anticommunist persecutions at the expense of the CP of Poland

On March 31st, 2016 four cadres of the Communist Party of Poland were sentenced by the regional court of Dabrowa Gornicza to 9 months of restricted freedom with obligatory social work and fines. The legal procedure at the expense of the CP of Poland and of its cadres that has been going on for two years will restart on the 27th of November with the charges of dissemination of the communist ideology in the «Brzask» newspaper and on the Party website. If the court finds them guilty, the charges are up to two years of incarceration.

At the same time, the CP of Poland is facing a new offensive from the Polish capitalist class and from the government party of Law and Justiceť (PiS), which is trying to illegalize the CP of Poland on the context that the Program of the CP of Poland does not abide by the Constitution.

The Communists Parties that participate in the International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties condemn the attempts to outlaw the Communist ideology in Poland. We denounce the persecutions against our Polish comrades. These persecutions, as well as the persecutions in other EU member-states, go hand in hand with the intensification of the anti-popular offensive, aim at equating Communism with the fascist monster; they aim at erasing the achievements of Socialism from the collective memory of the peoples.

100 years after the October Revolution, the peoples can and must draw conclusions from the anti-communist political positions of the EU and of the bourgeois governments that are becoming more intense. They must trust the Communists and demand the satisfaction of their modern needs, organizing their struggle against the capitalist system, the monopolies and their power.

All charges against the CP of Poland and its cadres have to be dropped immediately.

Hands off the Communists of Poland, the Communist ideology and their unrestricted action.

Solidarity with the CP of Poland!

Anti-communism shall not pass!
