Mr Prime Minister, Mr Minister of Interior Affairs,
We strongly protest against the arrests of Mr Ibrahim Cicek, Chief Editor of the Newspaper Atılım, and his collaborators, Mr Sedat Senoglu, Vice Chief Editor, Ms Ziya Ulusoy and Mr Bayram Namaz, journalists, as well as Ms Fusun Erdogan, Chief Coordinator of the Radio Ozgur and more 18 progressive individuals accused of been members of the clandestine communist party MLKP.
The Communist Organization of Greece (KOE), the Union of the Working People, the Left Mass Formations of the Youth and the Anti-imperialist Component are strongly condemning the declaration of “national emergency” state in the Philippines by the president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. This development proves the dark plans of Arroyo and her imperialist patrons against the Filipino people, and confirms the fascistization process that has been denounced by the revolutionary, national democratic forces. However, we are confident that this US-approved coup, which takes place under the pretext of a “military plot”, will not save the reactionary, corrupted Arroyo regime!
Friends and Comrades,
On behalf of the leadership, the members and supporters of the Communist Organization of Greece (KOE), we salute the events organized by the Bulgarian National Council for Peace. We stand firmly by your side against the presence of US military bases in Bulgaria, because the issue of the US-NATO occupation forces in the Balkans is a problem faced by all the peoples of our region. We are convinced that the struggle for the termination of this occupation will be a basic content and lever of the solidarity and the internationalism among the peoples of our region.
Accept the warmest comradely greetings of KOE on behalf of all our sympathizers. members and cadres, who enthusiastically follow up your steps forward and the achievements of the Nepalese people in the struggle against feudalism, imperialism and bureaucratic capitalism under the leadership of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).
Declaration initiated by KOE – July 2006
Stop the new Zionist and imperialist aggression and crimes
Concrete solidarity with the Palestinian and Lebanese people
Down with the abettor in crime “international community”
Palestine, Lebanon and the whole region are once more under fire. The Zionist state of Israel, with the full support of the imperialists, attacks the peoples of the region and causes bloodshed and terror. The Israelis put in action the Nazi methods and reasoning of “collective punishment”. They bomb, destroy and kill without discrimination. Their actions show that they enjoy the full support and cover of the Number 1 terrorist, the USA, but also of the hypocrites of the accomplice European Union.
We are particularly satisfied that, a few weeks after our first bilateral meeting, we are greeting, on behalf of the leadership and of the members of the Communist Organization of Greece, the Second Conference of your Party. We sincerely wish that this important event will contribute to the further ideological, political and organizational strengthening of the Workers Communist Party of Bosnia and Herzegovina, because the reinforcement of your Party will be beneficial for the peoples not only of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but of the whole Balkan region.
