The Central Committee decided to launch a Quake Appeal in solidarity with the earthquake victims in Türkiye and Syria to support the efforts by our fraternal organisations on the ground.
Some Party organisations have already pledged some donations.
There are efforts by the Communist Party of Türkiye (TKP) on the ground assisting victims from the earthquake and unions and other organisations in Syria. The situation in Syria is aggravated by the US criminal unilateral sanctions which make it very difficult sending any type of assistance.
We encourage all branches and party members to dig deep and donate to the Quake Appeal by no later than 30th April 2023. We will send the funds to our fraternal organisations in May 2023.
Please send your donations to the Central Committee’s bank account (details below).
In working class solidarity,
Communist Party of Australia
