Down with the Assad Tyranny! Victory to the Syrian Revolution! For a Workers and Peasants Republic!

Draft Platform of Syrian Revolutionaries in Political Solidarity with the RCIT, April 2017, www.thecommunists.net

 

 

 

We call all revolutionaries to unite on the following platform and to fight for these goals together with our international comrades of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT):

 

* Smash the Assad tyranny! Victory to the Syrian Revolution! Continue the Support for the popular struggle against the dictatorship!

 

* No trust in and no collaboration with any imperialist Great Power (like Russia, US, EU, China) nor with the governments of any of the regional powers (like Iran, Turkey, Saudi-Arabia)! Fight against all imperialist interventions!

 

* Down with all dictatorships and reactionary regimes in the Middle East! Solidarity with the popular resistance fighting for freedom!

 

* No to sectarianism! We want a society which respects the opinion of everyone on religion as his or her personal issue!

 

* Down with the counter-revolutionary Daesh!

 

* For multi-religious and multi-national unity in the struggle against the Assad dictatorship! For full national self-determination for all national and ethnic minorities!

 

* No trust in the official rebel leaderships – neither the pro-Western FSA nor the various types of Islamists! However, despite our sharp criticism of these leaderships we unconditionally support the ongoing struggle against the Assad regime led by these forces!

 

* For the formation of popular councils and popular militias!

 

* For a Workers and Peasants Republic in Syria! Spread the revolution to the whole Arab world and the Middle East!

 

* The international workers movement must rally to support the Syrian Revolution! For a workers aid campaign for the Syrian people – as it was done in solidarity with the Bosnian people in 1992-95!

 

* The international workers movement must organize a campaign to boycott the regime of Bashar al-Assad and his capitalist business friends! For workers actions against the imperialist forces attacking the Syrian people!

 

* Open the Boarders for the Syrian Refugees! Down with racism and Islamophobia in Europe!

 

* Most of all: For the building of a revolutionary party in Syria as part of a new revolutionary International!
