We are in the context of the global crisis of the capitalist system in imperialism, global crisis they pretend to solve using the high technological developments achieved nowadays in the IV industrial revolution, new imperialist facet commanded by the artificial intelligence with which they seek to boost their production to keep their current system in decomposition; at the same time that they create a great unemployment of the proletariat and the workers of the world.
Derived from the above, the imperialist contradictions sharpen and we are living a precursor of a rapine third world war for a new division of the world to conquer the hegemony and to maintain and impose the biggest exploitation and oppression the earth has seen and will see.
In these circumstances, the peoples of the world express themselves in massive and extensive struggles against the effects of the application of capitalist neoliberalism, against the capitalist system that imposes barbaric economic adjustments and denies them fundamental rights, precisely, to face the fair people’s struggles, imperialism and reactionaries make their states more reactionary denying rights, benefits, conquests and democratic freedoms. Imposing the Criminal Law for the Enemy to imprison and forever plunge in jail those who consider their enemies, people without rights who are considered non-people, in essence they are considered “things”. This is the fascist innocuousness, part of the imperialist policy that is being imposed in the world to fight against, mainly the communists, the revolutionaries, and the social fighters, whom are called “terrorists”.
Within this, we see with indignation what they apply against the members of Grup Yorum musical band in Turkey, who face a sinister political persecution that implies the imprisonment of several of its members, for the sole fact of developing art with social and political content that reality of the class struggle of their country demands from them. And by doing so consistently, taking art as an instrument of struggle, at the service of their people, they are harassed, persecuted, imprisoned and seek disappear them. A situation that we condemn strongly rejecting the repression of which they are subject. We stand in solidarity and support their fight, in that sense; we join the demand so that their just and reasonable demands are met.
