“Same sex couples have a right to raise children”

The Malta Communist Party appeals to the government to maintain adoption rights as an integral part of the law on civil union. Members of Parliament who are pushing their moralist agenda are doing so unjustly. They are using discriminatory language against same sex couples who are already raising children of their own.
The Commissioner for Children is obliged to stop all discriminatory language used in Parliament with reference to statements implying that children raised by same sex couples are being raised in an unhealthy or unfit environment.

Solidarity with Ukranian Communists

The Central Committee has sent this message of solidarity to the Communist Party of Ukraine.

 "The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Malta stands behind the Communist Party of Ukraine and all other left and progressive forces, who are under the direct threat from the fascist that are causing unrest in Ukraine. The Party in Malta have appealed to the Government of Malta to keep away from backing the European Union position, which is conveniently ignoring its own rules about democratically elected governments and only seeking its own interest disregarding the vast majority of the Ukrainian people who support the Ukrainian Government.
Towards this aim we had issued a press statement on the 5th of December and this could be seen on the party's blog and also on a local internet news network.
The Party expresses its solidarity with the Communist Party of Ukraine in this moment when US and EU imperialism are posing threats and are using a small fascist minority to bring down a democratically another elected government, which is not to their liking."

Message to KKE on the occasion of the 95th Anniversary from its foundation.

"The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Malta has sent this following message to the Communist Party of Greece on the occasion of the 95th Anniversary from its foundation:

The Communist Party of Malta salutes the Communist party of Greece on the occasion of the 95th Anniversary from its foundation.
The Communist Party of Greece which was founded just after the Great October Revolution, has always adhered to the principles of Marxism Leninism and has since then, ceaselessly struggled, for the full emancipation of the working class in Greece, and had always been staunch internationalist, on the forefront, and gave its’ support  in all international struggles, since its inception.

KKE had been the leader in the struggle against fascism in the 1930’s struggling against the Metaxas dictatorship, and during the Second World War were it was at the forefront of the armed struggle against the fascist occupation of Greece through the armed resistance that the EAM-ELAS guerrillas offered to the fascist NAZI invader.

Again in the 1946-1949, KKE struggled against the US and British imperialism who were intervening in Greece to help the bourgeoisie who started a civil war in Greece to wrest from the working class the gains and victories that resulted from the struggle and sacrifices made by the Greek people during the war.

The Communist Party of Greece was the catalyst for the unity within the international communist movement after the Gorbachev debacle, which led to the counter revolution that brought down the USSR and the Socialist Community in Eastern Europe.

Through these ceaseless struggles of the KKE today the International Communist Movement is marching forward under the banner of Solidnet, struggling for the downfall of the capitalist system.
A system that is in deep crises, trying unsuccessfully to save itself, by bringing about, misery, to the working populations throughout Europe, by the imposition of austerity measures.

Here again through PAME the KKE is leading the fight back in the defence of the Greek Workers, other Communist and Workers Parties are following its shining example.

On its 95th Anniversary the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Malta sends its warm fraternal greetings to the Leadership, the Central Committee and all the cadres of the Communist Party of Greece.
We are sure that KKE will be steadfast in the oncoming struggles and will continue to lead the working class in Greece to its final victory for the attainment of a Socialist society where exploitation of men by men will finally come to an end.

Long live Marxism-Leninism
Long Live the Communist Party of Greece".

“Government should keep away from Ukraine’s internal policies” – Communist Party of Malta

The Communist Party of Malta is concerned by the events taking place in Ukraine. The party supports the stand being taken by the Communist Party of Ukraine in condemning the violence committed by the authorities, and the so-called opposition.
“The Opposition against the government is made up of conservatives and extremists. The extreme forces openly represent far right and anti-Semitic positions. They regard Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera as a national hero and are members of the European Alliance of National Movements, which is led by the French National Front politician Bruno Gollnisch and includes Hungary’s Jobbik Party and the British National Party.
“The European Union and the US should stop supporting the Opposition and should not promote another orange revolution. The Ukrainian government was elected democratically therefore Western powers should stop interfering.”   
The Communist Party of Malta appeals to the Government to show respect towards the democratically elected president Viktor Yakunovich on his state visit to Malta next week. The Maltese Government should not interfere with Ukraine’s internal policies.       

"Government should not allow military ships from visiting Malta” – Communist Party of Malta

“Government’s position to allow HMS Bulwark to visit Malta is condemnable. It appears that the government is continuing with the same policies of the previous administration, which had rendered Malta a lackey to western military powers”, stated the Communist Party of Malta.
The Party reiterates that “the government foreign policies should be neutral and one that safeguards peace. Harbouring of warships in Malta go directly against this principle which is enshrined in the Maltese Constitution”.
“The government has the responsibility to implement different policies from the previous government, and should strengthen the political legacy inherited from Dom Mintoff”.

Maltese Activists appealed to Italian Justice Minister to Free left activist Bahar Kimyongur


Activists from the Communist Party of Malta and the NGO Garden of Knowledge have send this following appeal to the Italian Minister of Justice, Anna Maria Cancielleri.   

   The Communist Party of Malta and the organisation Garden of Knowledge are appalled at the arrest of left activist Bahar  Kimyongür,  a Belgian National of Turkish origin in Bergamo by the Italian Security Police(DIGOS) while on his way to attend a conference  about the situation in the “Middle East”.

                 Bahar Kimyongür, who has already been tried in Holland and Belgium, and won his appeal against the extradition order by the Turkish government, should not face another ordeal of an extradition threat. We appeal on the good sense of the Italian state to set Bahar Kimyongür free, as in a democracy it is an accepted  fact that  criticizing the policy of a country is not a crime.

                  Although the Turkish Government is democratically elected it is a known fact that the practices of the Turkish Government are not always democratic, and this has been a stumbling block in Turkey’s attempt to join the European Union. So again we call upon the Italian Government to release Bahar Kimyongür and let him go unhindered.
