Communist Party of Finland, SKP
The Communist party of Australia conveys its warm regards to the Congress of the Communist Party of Finland (SKP). We send our sincere greeting to Congress delegates, party members and the leadership of the party on this outstanding event in the history of the SKP under the slogan Congress “For Class struggle and Peace”.
We follow with great appreciation and interest your struggle to overcome the many challenges facing the Finnish working class and people due to the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, energy crisis, economic deterioration and the consequences of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian conflict which seeks to fill the desire of the ruling class to join NATO.
The ruling class seeks to hold the working class responsible for the economic deterioration due to its neoliberal policies which have led to high inflation and rising prices of basic commodities. The working class shouldn’t pay for the ruling class’s neoliberal mismanagement.
We in Australia are also facing many challenges and difficulties such as warmongering, the new cold war on China, low wages, housing and health issues and more importantly the lack of action on climate change. The new Labor government has created expectations for change but unless the workers and people in general take their demands to the streets nothing will really change.
The CPA wishes you a successful Congress and looks forward to hearing from the outcomes.
Long live international solidarity!
