New years greeting NCPN and CJB

We want to wish all workers a good and militant 2022. It will be a year in which the solidarity between, and the struggle of, the working class will be even more important than it was in the past. The signs of an oncoming capitalist crisis were already showing, but Covid-19 has accelerated this process greatly. In 2022 we will continue to feel its effects. Right now, the blow of the crisis is softened by our government’s measures that are designed to subsidize businesses and keep purchasing power stable. The rising levels of inflation are a sign that these measures have reached their limit. We can expect that, once again, the working class will be made to pay the bill of this crisis.

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 Israeli aggression! Free Palestine!

The NCPN and CJB denounce the Israeli aggression which has intensified once more over the past few weeks. Among other attacks, there were Israeli shootings in Jerusalem on Palestinian civilians, who resisted another eviction of Palestinian families. Moreover, airstrikes are carried out on Gaza in which tens of people, nine children among them, have died.

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.
