Partido Comunista de los Trabajadores (PCT) of the Dominican Republic Statement on Libya


No to Imperialist Intervention! Solidarity with the People of Libya!

NATO has launched its attack against Libya, just hours after the UN General Council adopted a resolution authorizing the adoption of “all necessary measures” to impose an air exclusion zone in the country. Thus begins the imperialist military intervention intended to prevent a revolutionary way to popular revolt.

The cynical argument has been, on this occasion, the defense of civilians. However, as at the time happened in Iraq, the imperialist powers turn their backs on their ally, not to support the progressive sectors, but to provide the pro-imperialist Libya bourgeoisie, which until yesterday supported Gaddafi crackdown on the popular revolt. Imperialism intends to intervene, not for democracy, but what NATO aircraft are enforcing by bombing is the maintenance of the status quo, continuing the charade, with other puppets.

The riots that are shaking up the foundations of the Arab world are the result of contradictions that have been incubating for years. Ben Ali in Tunisia, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, do not represent the national and democratic interests of their people, they are reactionary warlords who have ruled with an iron hand their country, defending the interests of imperialism and enriching themselves and their families by brutal exploitation of the masses.

In the case of Qaddafi, he has moved from progressive positions in the past to positions subservient to imperialism and privatization policies that have affected more and more the Libyan people, while the regime has been imposing a policy of intolerance.

The generalization of the revolt seriously threatens the strategic interests of the imperialist powers, with the danger of the processes end up taking the leap toward a revolutionary change, by all means try to influence them, reinforcing the role of sectors local pro-imperialist bourgeoisie. In fact, it appears that imperialism is expected to intervene, the sectors are truly interested in giving a national revolt, democratic and anti-imperialist, will wear facing the brutal military offensive of Gaddafi.

Of the fifteen members of the UN Council, ten voted for the resolution that has covered this criminal aggression, and five abstained. These five members are Russia, China, Brazil, India and Germany. Given the power of veto of permanent members, the abstention of Russia and China has made possible the resolution, making them complicit in this assault.

The PCT requires the cessation of the aggression against the Libyan people and says no to imperialist intervention. We also call on all progressive organizations and people to organize demonstrations of solidarity with the Arab peoples in struggle.

Against imperialism, VIVA INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY!

Partido Comunista de los Trabajadores (PCT) of the Dominican Republic Statement takes to the streets to demand wage increase

Feb. 2011, SANTIAGO, Dominican Republic.- The Communist Party of Labour-PCT-call to its membership and the people to take to the streets to protest the high prices of goods and services to you and raise.

Yesterday, the PCT spoke to participate in the march of the park Las Palmas de Los Mina, convened by the Coalition MIUCA-Action for Change.

Manuel Salazar, secretary general of the PCT, urged his membership to the streets to protest the high prices on goods and services, and to demand a general wage increase.

He said it is a necessity to take the streets because no popular pressure the government will not take action on behalf of the majority.

Salazar believes that the movement in the streets should be the main thrust of the left and grassroots groups to demand the people’s demands. “For this government understands that there are people starving.”

He argued that one must take the streets on a civic, forceful and systematic, and make all public places accessible to protest against the economic measures the government has taken against the people.

“In each municipality of the country should develop street demonstrations every Friday, to generate a large mass movement that forced the government to respond to demands.” said the leftist leader.

Manuel Salazar, said that from now on every Friday a day of protest will happen at some point in the country in an organized and peaceful until the government and its officials understand that the bus will not go forward, but goes into reverse.
