Poland: Stop State Repression against Socialists!


Statement of Solidarity of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 17 May 2018, www.thecommunists.net




The comrades from the Polish socialist website “Władza Rad” (“The Soviet Power”) informed us about increasing state repression in their country. One of their editors wrote us in a letter:


On Monday, April 30, police entered the flat of our comrades and took his notebook, two hard drives and cellphone. This action was done despite the fact that popularization of communism is legal in Poland, and so was completely unlawful. I am asking you to help us in informing the international community about the anti-Communist repressions in Poland.


The comrades report also about similar incidents against other Polish left-wing organizations. It is clear that the extremely right-wing, chauvinist and anti-communist government of Poland tries to suppress progressive opposition forces by any means necessary.


The Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT) strongly protests against all acts of state repression by the Polish government! Irrespective of ideological differences, we state our unconditional solidarity with the comrades of Władza Rad” as well as all other progressive and democratic forces in Poland! We call for international solidarity of the workers and popular movements in defense of democratic rights!


No to state repression!


Long live international solidarity!
