|With an overwhelming strength, crowds took to the streets in several Arab countries to protest against their Governments. First it was Tunisia, where a major popular uprising against the dictatorial regime of Ben Ali managed to put an end to 23 years of tyranny. Soon after it was the turn of Egypt, where a wave of protests and strikes, following days of fierce struggle, overthrew the regime of Hosni Mubarak.
Tahir Square in Cairo has turned into a milestone for protesters. It was there, on the eve of the fall of dictator Mubarak, that a letter from CSP-Conlutas supporting the revolutionary process in the country was read. Dissatisfaction, mobilizations and protests abound in Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Libya. The prominent role of women in the mobilizations demonstrates the necessity of revolutionary processes of the masses in the struggle for overcoming woman oppression. They are all demonstrations that people no longer support the repression imposed by their Governments and the increasing misery, due to the imperialist world economic crisis.
Libya: full support to the struggle of the people. No to military intervention. Down with Gaddafi!
In this country, the protests are facing a bloody response from dictator Gaddafi. This situation has led the country to a civil war, in which Gaddafi commands the attacks to both armed fighters and unarmed population on the best Hitler’s style. Despite the brutal repression, the insurrection continues until now. The imperialist powers (USA and Europe), after ignoring for decades this convenient dictatorship and turning a blind eye to the oppression of Libyan people, now promote the military occupation of Libya.
This action has a double objective: to ensure that the outcome of popular demonstrations in the Arab countries do not escape from their control and to assure the direct exploitation of energy resources.
That’s why we regret that leaders like Chavez, Castro and Ortega give their statements that put the struggle of the Libyan people on the same level of the imperialist maneuver, playing a confusing game in the necessary task of building solidarity and support for the ongoing fight against Gaddafi. At the same time, we don’t join with those who remain in silent before the maneuvers of the American and European imperialisms, which accomplish a classical military intervention according to their economic interests as if it was part of the Libyan people’s resistance.
Governments that have headed raids and massacres with their tanks and marines in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Haiti have no authority or credibility to speak on democracy and human rights.
The CSP-Conlutas rejects the imperialist military intervention in Libya. We support the Libyan people’s struggle against the reactionary regime of Gaddafi without confusing ourselves with internal sectors of Libyan resistance who seek a way out of the crisis by supporting the imperialist military aggression. Actually, the only way out is to concretize the unity of all Arab people who are fighting on the streets for transformations in their countries to put an end to the dictatorships and imperialist oppression that only cause misery and destruction.
The victory of Arab people in all the ongoing demonstrations in the region depends on the political unity and military resistance waged by all and on the extension of the international solidarity, seeking for arming and strengthening Libyan and other people’s resistance of the region. A crucial part of this struggle is the solidarity with the Palestinian people, the end of the blockade of the Gaza Strip and the struggle against the domination of the Zionist State of Israel, direct political and military representative of the imperialism in the region.
Against the military presence of NATO and the United States in North Africa, immediate cessation of bombing;
Against the policy of the European colonial powers and the USA in the revolutionary processes of North Africa;
Down with Gaddafi and all dictators of the region;
All support for the emancipation struggle of workers and the people of the North Africa countries.
