The Left parties – CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML), AIFB and RSP - have issued the following statement:
Immediately Stop this Genocide of Palestinians
The left Parties call for protest actions against US Imperialism, demanding that USA must ensure an immediate ceasefire and stop financing, arming and supporting the Israeli defense forces’ genocide of Palestinians, between 7-10 November 2023 when the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin would be coming to India to attend the 2+2 Ministerial dialogue with Indian Defense and External Affairs ministers.
The Left Parties call upon the Modi government to stop endorsing the US-Israeli genocide of Palestinians and to join the global call for an immediate ceasefire.
The state units of the Left Parties will decide the modalities of these protest actions in respective states.
