Solidarity declaration regarding destructive fires in Southern Europe

While the deadly floods in Western Europe are still fresh in our minds, we have in recent weeks seen the disturbing images of the catastrophic fires in Turkey, Greece, Algeria, Italy, other countries in Southern Europe, and elsewhere in the world. As a result of the fires, multiple people have lost their lives, many houses have burned down, and large pieces of nature have been destroyed. As the wildfires continue, people in several of these countries are also facing devastating floods, which have even claimed dozens of lives in Turkey.

Stop the repression in India!

The New Communist Party of the Netherlands (NCPN) and the Communist Youth Movement of the Netherlands (CJB) condemn the increasing repression in India by the reactionary BJP-led government. In recent months, the government has brutally repressed the farmers’ protests, who are heroically fighting against new legislation that would ruin their livelihoods in favour of big capital.

EU and Dutch government close eyes to humanitarian disaster for thousands of refugees!

About 13.000 refugees and migrants, including thousands of children, are still on the streets after a fire destroyed the refugee camp of Moria on the Greek island of Lesbos last Tuesday evening. They have been left to fend for themselves without shelter, often without food and drinks, and without sanitary facilities.
The calamity was inevitable. The camp is only meant for 3000 people and there is a shortage of all necessary facilities. The refugees over there live in the utmost unsafe and unhygienic circumstances.
