On this day, the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada expresses its deepest sympathies to the relatives of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 in the terrorist attacks on the United States. It expresses its highest regards for the herculean feats carried out by the rescue workers and condolences to the families of rescue workers who perished.
The Party pays homage to the countless numbers who have been killed in the so-called “war on terror” unleashed by the administration of George W. Bush in the aftermath of 9/11 and carried out by subsequent U.S. administrations. The Party condemns the role played by the government of Canada and other U.S. “allies” and the NATO aggressive military alliance led by the United States in the aftermath of 9/11.
On this occasion, we also recall the atrocities carried out against the people of Chile as a result the U.S. coup d’etat against that sister nation in 1973. We express our deepest sympathies and respect for all the relatives of those killed and disappeared in that country and in Argentina and other sister nations as a result of Operation Condor and the subsequent dirty wars in Central America. To this day, the U.S. continues to carry out similar crimes in the name of high ideals and Canada plays the role of handmaiden. It must not pass!
The MLPC reiterates its opposition to the use of torture, rendition to torture, indefinite detention, indefinite states of exception, “security certificates,” imposition of unreasonable limits on civil liberties and sanctions regimes. We express our support and sympathies to all who have suffered egregiously at the hands of those who justify such practices in the name of high ideals and have usurped the power to act with impunity.
