comunistaAnti-communist persecution against the Communist Party of Poland continues. On 27th of November the court proceedings will restart. The judicial prosecution based on charges of propagating communist ideology in the »Brzask« newspaper and on the party’s website continues for two years. This trial is a part of a campaign made by the government to illegalize the Communist Party of Poland.

This persecution is taking place simultaneously with the anti-communist policy of rewriting history and removing monuments and names of the streets associated with communism and workers’ movement from the public space.

We call for organising solidarity protests against the political persecution in front of Polish embassies all over the world on 27th of November.

Anti-communist represions in Poland were condemned by 67 parties that participated in the 19th International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties. We enclose their statement.
