National Office of CPC(M-L) Calls on Canadians to Actively Oppose State Terrorism at Home and Abroad
– TML Daily, September 11, 2001 –
The National Office of CPC(M-L) today calls on all the members and supporters of CPC(M-L), on all militant workers, organized and unorganized, on all justice-loving Canadians to go actively amongst their peers and lead them in coping with the tragedies which are unfolding in front of our eyes in the United States.
The National Office calls on all Canadian working people to condemn the use of state-organized terrorist attacks against the people. It calls on them to recognize the necessity to not be passive in the face of the situation in which the United States will seek to justify unleashing even more international terror against the peoples. This will be done in the name of punishing those who carried out this heinous crime.
The National Office of CPC(M-L) calls on all workers to see the necessity to oppose the fascist mystifications of the U.S. authorities and monopoly-controlled news media in the U.S. and Canada which seek to cover up who is to blame for these atrocities which are a counter-product of the crimes of the U.S. imperialists and their allies themselves. It is the U.S. imperialists and big powers, including Canada, which consider that the peoples of the world, their nations, nationalities and communities can exist only with their permission. It is their economic, political and military power which lies behind the reign of terror which they are seeking to justify in order to divide the peoples and divert them from seeking real solutions to the problems which they face.
This is not the time to permit the people’s political movement to take control over their lives to become disoriented so that the peoples become even more vulnerable to the tragedies which the U.S. imperialists and their allies have in store for them.
The National Office alerts the Canadian working class and people to prepare for all the possibilities, including any state-sanctioning of acts of revenge both at home and abroad. Do not permit any acts of revenge against any section of our people at home, in the United States or against any section of our humanity abroad. Other political parties also have a serious responsibility in this regard and the National Office of CPC(M-L) calls on them to make great efforts to ensure that politics which favour the people are put forward at this time.
Condemn the U.S. imperialist international reign of terror which is behind this heinous crime in the United States! Condemn the criminalization of dissent at home or abroad! With a clear conscience, put the blame squarely where it belongs!
