At its meeting on February 8-9, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada condemned US President Donald Trump’s “Deal of the Century” as a plan for war and occupation.

The dangerous upsurge in Sinophobia since the start of the coronavirus crisis is a present day reflection of the anti-China xenophobia which has always been deliberately fanned by reactionary forces, starting from the earliest days of European colonisation on the west coast. The Communist Party of Canada calls upon the labour and people’s movements, and all progressive organizations in Canada, to speak out against the latest wave of extremely divisive hatred directed against China and people of Chinese backgrounds.
As resistance grows against the Coastal GasLink pipeline and the massive RCMP invasion of Wet’suwet’en territories, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada, meeting over the Feb. 8-9 weekend in Toronto, sends greetings of solidarity to all who are in struggle today for Indigenous rights and environmental justice.
Support locked out Co-op refinery workers!
The escalating struggle by 800 locked out workers, members of Unifor Local 594, at the Federated Co-op Limited (FCL) refinery in Regina has the full solidarity of the Communist Party of Canada. All working people in the country have an interest in defeating this effort by a profitable corporation to bust the union and gut the pension plan that workers have relied on for 4 decades.
Despite the rhetoric by politicians and corporate bosses about “reconciliation” and “respect for Indigenous rights,” the invasion of Wet’suwet’en traditional territory in north-central British Columbia by Coastal GasLink (CGL) and the RCMP continues. In the wake of the latest B.C. Supreme Court injunction prioritizing the interests of resource extraction pipelines, the Communist Party of Canada expresses our full solidarity to the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and other land defenders, and for the eviction of CGL from this traditional territory.
The Communist Party of Canada condemns in the strongest terms, the illegal US airstrike and assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and 9 others, in Iraq on January 2nd. The US strike and assassinations are illegal under the UN Charter, and are acts of war and US state terrorism which threaten to set off a regional war or even a global confrontation. This is the road to Armageddon.
Le Parti communiste du Canada condamne avec la plus grande fermeté la frappe aérienne illégale et les assassinats du général iranien Qassem Soleimani et de 9 autres personnes, crimes perpétrés par les États-Unis en Irak le 2 janvier dernier.

Ce sont des actes de guerre et de terrorisme d’État menés par les États-Unis qui menacent de déclencher une guerre régionale et même une confrontation mondiale. C’est la voie de l’Armageddon.
