Le Parti communiste du Canada dénonce la récente visite de la ministre des Affaires étrangères, Mélanie Joly, à Kiev et la perçoit comme une provocation à l’égard de la Fédération de Russie, ainsi qu’une profession de foi en faveur du bellicisme inhérent à l’impérialisme occidental. Par cette visite, elle contribue également à légitimer un régime fascisant dans le but d’escalader de façon dangereuse les tensions entre l’OTAN et la Fédération de Russie.
Mélanie Joly to Kiev: “a friend” with fascists to reassure warmongers
The Communist Party of Canada condemns Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly’s recent visit to Kiev, as a provocation against Russia and a statement of support for Western imperialism’s warmongering. Through her visit, she has contributed to legitimizing a fascistic regime, with the aim of escalating tensions between NATO and Russia.
End the Draconian “State of Emergency” and “Emergency Laws” in Sudan

These are the demands of tens of thousands of demonstrators protesting in cities across Sudan against the military dictatorship which organized a coup d’état October 25 against the interim civilian military coalition government which was to hold elections for a civilian government next year.
With only a few weeks before the Feb. 5 opening ceremony of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games, the attempt by the US and its clique of faithful allies to mount a so-called “diplomatic boycott” has faltered. The Communist Party of Canada condemns this shameful exercise in hypocrisy, which is backed by the federal government and the parties in Parliament. This is the latest indication that support for Washington’s global strategy has become the virtually unquestioned basis of Canada’s foreign policy.
The Communist Party of Canada, with a proud century-long tradition of fighting for democratic rights and the right to employment, denounces the dismissal of a teacher in Chelsea, Outaouais, Quebec, for wearing a headscarf under Bill 21. Nevertheless, we condemn with equal firmness the outpouring of editorials, commentaries, articles and political posturing directed against Quebec in the rest of Canada.
Le Parti communiste du Canada, fier d’une tradition centenaire de luttes pour les droits démocratiques et pour le droit au travail dénonce le licenciement d’une enseignante de Chelsea, en Outaouais, au Québec, sous prétexte qu’elle porte un voile en vertu de la Loi 21. Néanmoins, nous condamnons d’une égale fermeté le déferlement d’éditoriaux, commentaires, articles et prises de position politique dirigés contre le Québec dans le reste du Canada.
The Communist Party of Canada is concerned about the fate of Palestinian political prisoners, especially the 500 of them, including six children, who are subject to the administrative detention regime, which some describe as arbitrary detention. Among them, we are particularly concerned about the fate of Hisham Abu Hawash who, after completing more than 130 days of hunger strike, had his administrative detention renewed for another six months on December 16.
Le Parti communiste du Canada s’inquiète du sort des prisonniers politiques palestiniens, en particuliers des 500 parmi eux et elles, dont six enfants, soumis au régime de détention administrative que d’aucuns qualifient de détention arbitraire. Parmi eux, nous nous inquiétons particulièrement du sort de Hisham Abou Hawash qui, après avoir accompli plus de 130 jours de grève de la faim, a vu sa détention administrative renouvelée pour six mois supplémentaires le 16 décembre dernier.
The teleconference of the extraordinary International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties (IMCWP) took place on 10–11 December 2021, under the theme “The international economic, political, and military developments. The experience from the struggle of Communist and Workers’ Parties and the peoples. Solidarity with Cuba, the Palestinian people, and all the peoples struggling against sanctions, machinations, and imperialist aggression”.
Workers have a world to win – and a planet to save!
Speaker after speaker at the COP26 conference in Glasgow pointed to the increasing frequency and severity of the effects of climate change, from droughts to hurricanes to floods to forest fires. These effects are devastating the developing countries of the global south, but they are also wreaking havoc in imperialist countries, as evidenced by the recent mass floods and mudslides in BC.
Yet despite the abundant evidence of crisis, the Glasgow conference was a festival of platitudes rather than a serious discussion of solutions.
