Down with the PML(RC) ban! Freedom for the Spanish internationalists!

ICOR, 25 March 2016


At the end of January, nine internationalists were arrested on Spanish state territory. Most of them are alleged members of the communist organization “Partido Marxista-Leninista / Reconstrucción Comunista” (Marxist-Leninist Party / Communist Reconstruction).

Already in July 2015, two young members of this organization were arrested temporarily with the justification that they had joined the armed struggle of YPG against ISIS without getting the authorization of the Spanish state. Reconstrucción Comunista (RC) is now being accused of supporting PKK and RC itself is being prosecuted as a criminal association. Spain construes a legal basis for this attack on grounds of the Europe-wide ban of PKK as a terrorist organization. Com. Roberto Vaquero was in jail until the middle of March 2016 and could be released in the meantime. The organization has been banned for one year, two of its party offices were closed.

Freedom for the Spanish internationalists! Immediate lift of the party ban of PML(RC)!

We condemn the criminalization of our comrades in Spain and the hypocrisy of the Spanish state. The Spanish government along with all other European governments sheds crocodile tears over the fundamentalist terror in Paris and in Brussels; now they criminalize those who voluntarily and without any kind of securities, selflessly put their health and live

s on the line to fight against this very fundamentalism. The heinous attacks of Daesh (IS) are used in order to further restrict bourgeois democratic rights and liberties throughout Europe. The fascistization of the state apparatuses in several Western European countries is directed against a transnational trend to the left connected with the awakening of the internationalist consciousness among the masses.

Our Spanish comrades fight for the freedom and self-determination of all peoples living in the Syrian part of Kurdistan – Rojava.

However, all the peoples struggling for freedom all over the world and the class conscious workers are standing behind them. The true arsonists for the dirty war in the Middle East can be found in the imperialist governments of the United States, the EU, Russia and the reactionary regimes of Turkey, Saudi-Arabia, Qatar and Syria.

The ICOR declares its steadfast solidarity with the Spanish comrades. It will not be kept from continuing the solidarity with the liberation struggle of the Kurdish people and the peoples in Western Asia.

Organize manifold forms of solidarity, adopt protest resolutions to the Spanish government, and solidarity resolutions, document them and send them to

Down with the ban of the Marxist-Leninist Party (Communist Reconstruction) (Partido Marxista-Leninista (Reconstrucción Comunista))!

Down with the ban of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê)!

Freedom for the Spanish internationalists!
