  • Letter of Sitaram Yechury to PM on the plight of farmers in India

    We are releasing the text of a letter written by Sitaram Yechury, CPI(M) General Secretary and Leader of the CPI(M) Group in Rajya Sabha, to the Prime Minister demanding introduction and passing of a legislation in the forthcoming Parliament session which not only confers on farmers the Right to Sell at MSP but also guarantees an automatic annual review of the MSP, which will be, at least, 50 per cent more than production costs.

    Dear Pradhan Mantri Ji,

    I am writing this letter to draw your attention to the plight of farmers across India, which has resulted in a high level of rural distress, including thousands of suicides by farmers in the past three years. There have been increasing protests by farmers in one state after another, which have been met by your silence and apathy while the state governments of your party have let the police lose on the poor farmers. Six farmers have lost their lives in police firing in Madhya Pradesh, many seriously injured. Meanwhile, many continue to commit distress suicides, the latest such tragedy occurring in the CM's own constituency.

  • Communist Party of Poland: Preserve the memory of the victims of fascist crimes and the heroes of the struggle against fascism

    Communist Party of PolandChanges of street names carried out under the “Decommunisation Act” serves the purpose of falsifying History in the interest of the ruling right wing. Historical policy implemented by the state institutions discriminates, on political grounds, anyone associated with communism, regardless of his/her significance or achievements. The list of toponyms that are to be changed is still expanding and includes not only those directly involved in the communist activity.

  • Tudeh Party: Iranian people braced for the outcome of the latest Islamic Republic charade!

    Tudeh Party of IranTudeh Party of IranThe presidential election in Iran is taking place today, 19 May. Although there are a lot of commentaries in the media both in Iran and internationally about the outcome of this election, one key point is clear and undisputed - that none of the opposition forces are allowed to take part in this election.

    The candidates that have been approved and shortlisted are all from different factions of the ruling regime and thus the overall outcome of the election is a foregone conclusion, i.e. a candidate totally committed to continuing the same strategic direction of the theocratic regime will be appointed. The final “victor” of the election will be the one selected by Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme religious leader, based on the judgement as to whether he is the one that the regime considers as having the key qualities to go on and secure its survival in the current complex situation both at home and internationally.

    Tudeh Party of IranTudeh Party of IranAccording to reports currently circulating, as a result of a massive explosion deep within a coal mine in Golestan province, northern Iran, a large number of miners have been killed and others trapped and concerns are growing for their safety. So far, the death of 35 miners has been confirmed and 21 bodies have been recovered. Most of these miners have perished due to lack of oxygen.

The authorities locally have already confirmed that the mine lacked certain necessary safety equipment including that for the monitoring of the level of explosive gas build up within the complex. One miner has reported that the motor operating some of the machinery had already stopped owing to the gas build up but that the miners were told to continue with their work and restart the motor at which point the initial explosion occurred.

  • KSČM on Czech Government’s Crisis

    KSCMWe reproduce a statement issued by the Executive Committee of the Ventral Committee of the Communist Party of Bohemia & Moravia (KSČM):

    An announcement by Czech PM Bohuslav Sobotka to intend to declare Czech Republic’s government to resign has verified the KSČM’s opinion from the very beginning of 2017. The coalition government, composed by the Social-Democrats, the ANO movement and the Christian Democrats, in the political flap of mutual accusation of scandalous violation of the laws, will do no positive thing for Czech Republic henceforth. The only solution in the interest of Czech citizens is to advertise a Parliamentary early election.

  • Iraqi Communist Party: We condemn the brutal Turkish aggression on Iraq’s territory

    Iraqi Communist PartyTurkish warplanes yesterday (25th April) bombarded sites in the Sinjar area in Iraq, which it said belonged to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), inflicting human losses and material damage.

    This aggression came after the recent referendum in Turkey, which gave Erdogan and his government a green light to continue along the path of arrogance and to seek to impose its will on other countries in the region through the use of force. Such an approach would, of course, open the door to further complexities in the region and the world, and would further complicate international cooperation and coordination against Daesh and terrorism with even greater difficulties.

  • Declaration of the French Communist Party on the Presidential Elections

    French Communist PartyWe reproduce a statement issued by the French Communist Party about the results of the first round of French Presidential Elections:

    The second round of the French presidential election will be a contest between the racist and xenophobic candidate of the far right, Marine Le Pen, and Emmanuel Macron, the candidate selected by the financial world to reinforce the liberal policies afflicting our country for the past 40 years.

    This situation is extremely grave for our country. The far-right reached the second round and the left has been eliminated. However, for the first time in decades, millions of citizens, striving for social change, nearly succeeded in carrying their candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon to the second round. Voters who were betrayed by the policies of Hollande and Valls and who worked hard to bring Jean-Luc Mélenchon to the second round are today experiencing mixed and sometimes contradictory feelings.
