We, the members of the Dadu Sindh branch of the PTUDC, condemn the
terrorist attack on the peaceful people of London by al-Qaeda – the
friends of international imperialism. We understand that through this
act the terrorists make the imperialist countries more powerful. The
imperialists will now attack the working class in the name of the “war
on terror” and in the name of “peace”. All of our comrades observed a
one-minute silence for the innocent victims of yesterday’s attack.
From the United States:
News of the terrorist attacks in London have brought up the horrible
memories of September 11th in the United States. It is with deepest
compassion, sympathy and solidarity that we send this message to our
brothers and sisters in London, Britain and the rest of the world.
Here in the U.S., we have come to know the psychological, economic, and
social effects of terrorism. We have felt the loss, mourned, and suffered
the damaging effects of the ensuing nationalist hysteria. Our leaders, in
response to the terror attacks of 2001, began a campaign of state terrorist
death and destruction abroad supported by a relentless propaganda campaign
suppression of our rights at home.
Hypocritical patriotism was preached and nationalism prevailed. Don’t fall
victim to these same manipulations, comrades! This is not the time for blind
retaliation at the cost of further destruction and loss of innocents, but
for analysis of the causes of these attacks. Especially now, the day of the
G8 Summit in Edinburgh, where the greedy tyrants of world capital are
meeting and discussing "debt relief" in their capitalist double-speak, we
must conclude that it is imperialism and its subjugation of the peoples of
the world that is responsible for
The answer is internationalist solidarity, not nationalist hatred. We stand
beside you, as do all the workers of the world. It is only through our
struggle for genuine equality and genuine democracy that, one day, terrorism
only in the history books.
Our thoughts are with our British brothers and sisters and we are confident
that you will not be led down a blind alley by Bush, Blair & Co. who will no
doubt use these attacks as justification for their war on workers at home
and abroad. Workers of the world unite against capitalism and the scourge of
individual and state terrorism!
