Communist Party Reminds US Government to Keep Hands off Venezuela

The Communist Party USA denounces the events that have transpired in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela over the past week. Some opponents of the progressive government of Nicolas Maduro, coming from privileged strata which do not accept the achievements of the Bolivarian government, went far beyond peaceful protest, which is guaranteed to them as a right by the Venezuelan constitution, and committed acts of violence in Caracas and other areas.  At least four people have died, with disturbances continuing.

Happy International Women's Day

It was the courage of hundreds of women shirtwaist workers that inspired International Women's Day. They walked off the job for better wages and the right to vote in 1909, striking for 13 weeks in a bitter cold New York winter. At the Second International Conference of Socialist Women in 1910, one hundred years ago, German Communist Clara Zetkin proposed that March 8 be set aside each year for solidarity with women workers around the world.  Since 1977 International Women's Day has been recognized and celebrated by the United Nations.

CPUSA demands justice for Cuban Five

CPUSA statement on Appeals Court decision June 4 in the case of the Cuban Five. The Communist Party USA rejects unequivocally the decision announced June 4 by a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals that puts off freedom for five Cuban men who as of September 12 will have served ten years of unjust imprisonment. They are Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, and Ramon Labanino. Their supposed crime was to have taken non-violent actions in defense of their nation. For almost fifty years, thugs and criminals, encouraged by successive U.S.governments, have directed murder and mayhem against the Cuban people. Five men, courageous and principled, volunteered to watch over unseemly private groupings, gangs we say, to report their plotting to Cuban authorities. The Communist Party condemns the U.S. government for its complicity with this terror campaign. We view that government judges included as party to continuing persecution of the Cuban Five. They have, in fact, put the Cuban revolution in the dock. The valor and idealism of our brothers who are in jail exemplify revolutionary ideals. We take to heart Gerardo Hernandez words in response to this skewed decision: This is the same system that has unjustly incarcerated Mumia for more than 20 years along with Leonard Peltier and the Puerto Rican political prisoners. He asserts that, We will endure as many years as necessary, adding that, As long as one of you is resisting, we will also resist until there is justice. We resist too. The Communist Party USA was gratified by Amnesty Internationals denunciation of U.S. persecution of the Cuban Five contained within its annual report issued May 28. Our Party recalls the designation by a United Nations working group in 2005 of their detention as arbitrary. We point to phrasing early in theAppeals Courtdecision demonstrating either bias or incompetence. We say the former. Judge William Pryor, writing for the Court, asserts that Each Cuban agent was convicted of espionage charges... In fact three were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, among other charges; none of espionage. On another occasion, Leonard Weinglass, appeals attorney for Antonio Guerrero, indicated why this lapse is significant: By using the charge of conspiracy the government is relieved of the requirement that the underlying crime be proven. Our Party will not rest until these five Cuban combatants against terrorism - defenders of the Cuban revolution - are freed. Additionally, the Communist Party USA pledges continuing dedication, with allies, toward bringing arch terrorist Luis Posada Carriles to justice.
