Solidarity With The Palestinian People

Representatives of the Communist and Workers Parties
Meeting in Athens from 8-10 October, 2004, express their
total condemnation of the brutal crimes committed by the
Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian People.
They expressed their grave concern over the dangerous
escalation of the campaign of terror and suppression during
the last weeks directed against the Palestinian People in
the Gaza Strip and Jabolyia.

At the same time, the siege against Palestinian cities,
villages and refugee camps in the Western Bank continues
unabated. While Israeli authorities continue to build the
separation Wall and fragment Palestinian territory and
force people to live in Bantustans. In addition,
confiscation of land and the construction of settlements
are the practice of the day.

We, the representatives of Communist and Workers Parties,
strongly condemn the recent Israeli aggression supported by
the US. We call upon the international community to provide
the Palestinian People with international protection and to
force the Israeli generals to stop their repressive acts.
At the same time, we call upon the UN, international public
opinion and international organizations to intervene and
demand that Israel abide by the Fourth Geneva Convention
and its application to the occupied territories. In
addition, to take the necessary measures to achieve a
settlement of the Palestinian Problem in accordance with UN
resolutions which guarantee the establishment of an
independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital
and the right of the refugees to return to their homes, as
we;; as the execution of the World Court of Justice
decisions concerning the Israeli separation Wall.
