Communist Party, USA: Resolution of Solidarity with the Iraqi Communist Party

BY:28th National Convention| July 20, 2005

Whereas, the Iraqi Communist Party, with its heroic history of struggle against imperialism and brutal dictatorship, has been working under the most difficult conditionsincluding assassinations, bombings, and ideological attacks from forces determined to turn Iraq from the road of democratic development; and,

Whereas, despite these obstacles, the Iraqi Communist Party has been fighting for unity, national, political, and economic sovereignty, peace, trade union rights, political rights, and women’s rights, in a secular, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, democratic society, rebuilding from the devastation imposed by U.S. invasion and occupation;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Communist Party, USA extends the hand of international solidarity to the Iraqi Communist Party, and accepts the internationalist responsibility to mobilize the U.S. working class and all peace-loving Americans to demand that all U.S. troops be brought home now from Iraq; and,

Be it further resolved, that we look forward to the day when our two parties, working classes, and peoples can meet again under conditions of peace and an independent and democratic Iraq.

End the occupation!
Bring the troops home now!
Long live the Iraqi Communist Party and the democratic forces of Iraq!

Adopted by the 28th National Convention of the Communist Party, USA, Chicago, IL; July 1-3, 2005.
