1. Stop The Agression on Libya (news from the cpi(m))

March 20, 2011

Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the
following statement:

Libya: Stop The Aggression

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the aerial bombardment by
aircrafts and ship-based missiles on Libya by the Nato forces. The
military strikes by the Nato forces comprising France, Britain and the
United States are a dangerous act of aggression. The Nato is now repeating
what it did in Iraq, which led to deaths of millions of people and large
scale destruction. Already forty eight people are reported dead in the
attacks on the first day.

Despite the rhetoric about protecting the Libyan people, this act of
aggression is a gross violation of Libya?s sovereignty and a calculated
intervention in an internal conflict to bring about regime change. The
hypocrisy of the Western powers can be seen in their connivance with the
Saudi military intervention to crush the popular and peaceful revolt in
Bahrain. The West has no compunction in resorting to force to secure its
interests in oil-rich Libya and the Middle East.

The Security Council resolution on Libya has been utilized by the Nato for
this attack. The five members of the Security Council, which includes
India, who abstained on the resolution should immediately demand a review
of the resolution. Till then there has to be a halt to the military action
by Nato.

The CPI(M) calls upon all the democratic and progressive forces in India
to strongly protest yet another military aggression by America and its
allies on an Arab-African country.
