Global anti-imperialist group denounces war exercises
Published Dec 1, 2010 9:52 PM
The following statement was released Nov. 30 by Manik Mukherjee, Vice
President of the All India Anti-imperialist Forum and General Secretary of the
International Anti-imperialist and People’s Solidarity Coordinating
The International Anti-imperialist and People’s
Solidarity Coordinating Committee denounces the conspiracy of the U.S.
imperialists to heighten the war tension in East Asia by launching a joint
military exercise with south Korea in the Yellow Sea.
The U.S. has long been militarily threatening the [the Democratic
People’s Republic of Korea] with a view to staging a
counter-revolutionary overthrow of socialism in DPRK and bringing about a
“regime change” there. The present joint military drill is another
such exercise directed against the DPRK.
We also condemn India’s pro-imperialist stand on this issue. Instead of
strongly voicing a demand for stopping the joint military exercise, it has
taken an ambivalent stand by appealing to both parties to maintain peace,
thereby effectively taking side with the imperialist camp.
However, it is heartening that the people in south Korea are beginning to see
through the nefarious design of the U.S. and are staging protests against the
joint exercise, holding placards proclaiming, “No War” and
“We Want Peace.”
The IAPSCC demands that the U.S. totally withdraw its military presence in the
Korean region and allow the two Koreas to peacefully resolve their differences
through mutual dialogues.
IAPSCC calls upon all the peace-loving people of the world to rise up in
protest against the U.S. war maneuvers and to build up a strong global
international movement against the imperialist war designs.
