We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), send warmest greetings of solidarity to the Workers World Party and congratulate it for convening its Party national conference with the theme “The Global Capitalist Economic Crisis: What it will take to fight it”, on 8-9 October 2011 in New York.
This national conference comes at a most exciting juncture in the history of the people’s struggle against imperialism and all reaction. The deepening crisis of the imperialist system is shuddering the very centers of the capitalist system and causing the political tumult and upheavals in the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere.
The working class and the rest of the people are resisting the escalation of exploitation and oppression in both developed and underdeveloped countries. The US and its imperialist allies are finding themselves sinking in quagmires where they have launched wars of aggression and are now faced with growing armed resistance by the people.
The daily militant gathering of protesting people at Wall Street is of signal importance. They are at the very heart of big business in Manhattan, New York, shouting: enough of the duplicity, exploitation, plunder and attacks on jobs, social security, health and welfare, enough of the attacks of capital on the working people!
We commend the WWP for shedding light on the grave problems of monopoly capitalism and showing the road of anti-imperialist and democratic struggle towards proletarian revolution and socialism. The WWP stands on solid ground and deserves the support of all the people who fight for their rights against exploitation, oppression and all kinds of discrimination.
Long live the Workers World Party!
Long live the US working class and people of various nationalities!
Long live international solidarity!
