Int`l day of action for the Iraqi Resistance


Sept 25, anniverary of the Palestinian Intifada, as of Sept 21

For the Iraqi Resistance

In Iraq a battle of historic importance is raging. After two wars of aggression and a genocidal embargo claiming 2 million lives and having devastated an entire country, the Iraqi people is confronting the illegitimate and brutal occupation by the US and their allies. The heroic resistance of the Iraqi people against the Anglo-American invaders is legitimate according to international law and the UN Charter, including the right to resort to armed means. They are claiming their inalienable right to national self-determination and sovereignty. But at stake is much more, namely the very future of the US attempt to erect their global empire, that is to say the future of humanity.

The battle of the Iraqi people is the battle of all movements, peoples and nations fighting for their liberation from the imperialist world system led by the US. Therefore we have to firmly rally behind the Iraqi resistance. If we are able to support their struggle to smash the US attempt to build a puppet regime and to eventually drive out the invaders, it will result into a victory for mankind. It will not only give new momentum to the struggle of the Palestinian and Afghan people, but will lead to a new offensive of the liberation struggles all around the world.

Thus we call upon the democratic forces of the world, the anti-war and the anti-globalisation movements to join hands in a international day of action for the victory of the Iraqi resistance with demonstrations all around the world on September 25, the Saturday before the anniversary of the Palestinian Intifada.

Stop the occupation of Iraq and Palestine!
Imperialist troops and bases out!
Down with the US preventive war and their empire!
