CPA greeting to the 90th anniversary of the Iraqi Communist Party

Read Fahmy
General Secretary
Iraqi Communist Party

Dear Comrade,

The Communist Party of Australia conveys its warm greetings to the members and leadership of the Iraqi Communist Party on the 90th anniversary of its foundation.

The Iraqi Communist Party played a prominent role in the struggle to defend the rights of the working class, peasants, and marginalised groups in the nation. Your Party also played an important role in the struggle for national independence against British colonialism from the foundation in 1934 until the 14 July 1958, revolution.

Ninety years of struggle, and your party is still defending the rights of the oppressed classes in difficult and extremely complex circumstances.

Your anniversary happens at a time where, we are witnessing hundreds of thousands of people around the world taking part in street rallies in solidarity with the Palestinian people demanding a ceasefire, humanitarian aid, the end of the occupation and an independent Palestinian state.

The CPA wishes the ICP every success on the 90th anniversary of its foundation and we extend our congratulations to the party leadership, members, and supporters of the Iraqi Communist Party.

We are looking forward to strengthening the fraternal relations between the Communist Party of Australia and the Iraqi Communist Party based on international solidarity, the struggle for peace, and Socialism.

In working class solidarity,

Vinnie Molina
International Department
Communist Party of Australia, CPA
