Joint Statement of Communist and Workers’ Parties In Europe

The Czech presidency of the EU, in the middle of a capitalist economic crisis, has taken the initiative to organize a number of anticommunist events to promote the attempt to equate communism with Nazism, to rewrite history and manipulate the consciences mainly of the young generation, with a view to the future rather than the past.

The intention, expressed within the European Union (in countries where Communist Parties have been already outlawed), of characterizing communism and class struggle as a crime, is not directed only against the communists, nor does it concern solely the EU countries.

The anticommunist hysteria that burst out a few years ago with the so-called “Memorandum” on the “need of international condemning of the crimes by totalitarian communist regimes” in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and which continues until today is directed at the working class as well as at the other popular strata”.

They want to strike at the vanguard of the people’s movement and its struggle against the anti-people plans and the attempt to place on the workers’ shoulders the burden of the world crisis. They want to eliminate the challenge to the exploitative system and the prospect of a just society, expressed by the ideology and the struggles of communists. They intent to strike at the forces of resistance and popular counterattack on the basis of anticommunist hysteria, lies and persecution. They have announced new offences against Socialist Cuba and the peoples that resist imperialism.

We condemn these actions undertaken by the presidency of the EU and we call on the peoples of Europe to react dynamically and to massively condemn them.
