No To Annexation

As people around the world commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, on August 6 and 9, 1945, the Communist Party of Canada calls for renewed campaigns for disarmament and abolition of nuclear arms.

The use of nuclear weapons by the United States – the first and, so far, only time these weapons of mass destruction have been used in combat – was a criminal act of imperialist aggression. It marked the beginning of humanity’s existential threat by its own actions.

No To Annexation

This year, Pride events and mobilizations across the country take place in profoundly difficult conditions, marked by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and deep economic crisis. The twin threats of the economic crisis and the pandemic are seriously weakening and destroying the social relationships and institutions of communities: the social spaces that bring the community together are closing, sometimes permanently. A recent country-wide survey indicated that the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on 2S/LGBTiQ+ people. We have also seen the evaporation of services and supports, painstakingly built up over decades by dedicated community activists.

Central Executive Committee, Communist Party of Canada, July 3. 2020

No To Annexation

On July 1st Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the Israeli-imposed deadline had been reached for its illegal annexation of the Palestinian  territories of the West Bank and Jordan Valley.  He added, Israel could delay a little bit if there was “good reason”.

Indeed, there is good reason, as the whole world knows.  The Israeli annexation is completely illegal under international law, and is an act of war against the Palestinian People whose land has been illegally occupied by Israeli troops and settlements over more than five decades.  The annexation is the main point in the Trump-Netanyahu “Deal of the Century”, which has been rejected out of hand by the Palestinian people, and by governments around the world which recognize it a provocation, an act of war and genocide.

Victory Over Fascism

La victoire sur le nazi-fascisme dans la Seconde Guerre Mondiale est un événement majeur de l’Histoire, dont la mémoire doit être préservée et défendue contre les tentatives répétées de falsification historique visant à faire oublier le rôle décisif qu’y ont joué l’Union des Républiques Socialistes Soviétiques, les communistes et les antifascistes du monde entier.

End US Sanctions on Cuba

Canada’s quiet complicity in the US government’s latest attempt to strangle Cuba with sanctions and invocation of Title 3, the extra-territorial section of the Helms-Burton Act, makes Canada an active participant in the US drive to overthrow the government of Cuba.

The US fixation on Cuba is well-known around the world, and in particular the aggressive stance of the current US President; but Canada’s aggressive new role is not understood, nor supported by a majority of Canadians.
