In solidarity with SP of Lithuania

Attempts by the right-wing majority in the parliament of Lithuania to equate fascism and communism and to rehabilitate the Lithuanian quisling movement which collaborated with occupying Nazi forces during the Second World War, is one more in the long line of examples of growing anti-communist hysteria in Europe, especially in the ex-socialist countries where the revision of the history is taking place, where the heroes of the antifascist struggle are being declared usurpers, where monuments to those who fought and sacrificed their lives in the struggle against fascism are being torn down and the socialist past being declared a black stain in the history.

Communism, as an ideology of the working class for liberation from the exploitation of capital, provokes the anger of the bourgeoisie and for that reason it should not surprise us that there are McCarthyite attempts to spread the cheap anti-communist propaganda and hysteria through delivering various declarations and decisions.

As we stood together with our comrades in Czech Republic and Hungary as a symbol of solidarity, who found themselves affected by the bourgeois repression for their uncompromised expression of the fundamental communist beliefs, now we stand with our comrades from the Socialist Party of Lithuania (LSP) at whom was aimed the right-wing initiative in the parliament.

For that reason we express our full support the our comrades from LSP and denounce the reactionary act of the bourgeois forces in Lithuania.

With the faith in the future, for socialism until the victory!
