Statement from the New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (NKPJ).
The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (NKPJ) strongly condemned the violent intrusion of police forces of the Albanian pro-imperialist authorities in Pristina to the buildings of the municipalities of Zvečan, Leposavić and Zubin Potok, in order to enable entry into them for the mayors who received their mandate in illegitimate elections that were boycotted by the majority Serb population in those three municipalities on Kosovo.
NKPJ strongly condemns the brutal beating of citizens who tried to prevent a violent invasion of the buildings of those three municipalities by the Kosovo police, who threw tear gas at those present and rudely intervened. NKPJ believes that the alleged condemnations of brutal police intervention by the representatives of the Quinte countries are completely false and shameless. It is naïve to believe that the Quisling authorities in Pristina would dare to violently intervene in the north of Kosovo and Metohija without the prior permission of their imperialist masters from Washington, London and Brussels.
The latest events in the southern Serbian province show for the umpteenth time that this is a territory under the occupation of Western imperialism, stolen from Serbia.
Since June 9, 1999, the southern Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija has been under the occupation of the striking military fist of Western imperialism, NATO, and the Serbs living in that area have become second-class citizens.
On that day, the so-called “Kuman Agreement” was signed, which started the NATO occupation of Kosovo and Metohija after the aggression of Western imperialist countries on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (March 24 – June 10). By signing that agreement, the Yugoslav Army was forced to leave Kosovo, and the power in that territory was taken over by the terrorist pro-imperialist “Kosovo Liberation Army”, while NATO formed the largest military base in the Balkans, “Bondsteel”.
Washington, London, and Brussels exert constant pressure on Belgrade to officially recognize the independence of the fake “state of Kosovo”, which the communist and anti – imperialists organisations of the world wholeheartedly oppose and demand that this retrograde act be directed against peace, stability and prosperity, which is carried out for the sake of expansionist goals of large capital should be ended immediately.
NKPJ points out that Kosovo and Metohija is an inalienable and integral part of Serbia, and that the Serbs there are second-class citizens discriminated against by the Albanian separatist authorities in Pristina. NKPJ demands that the occupying NATO troops immediately leave the southern Serbian province and that it return to the composition of its motherland, Serbia.
URGENT! A CALL FOR SOLIDARITY WITH THE SERBIAN PEOPLE IN KOSOVO
The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia calls on all communist and anti-imperialist organizations to show solidarity with the Serbian people in Kosovo, which are experiencing violence by its police forces, as well as the NATO occupation forces in the region.
The clashes in the north of the province started on Friday when the government of the so-called “Republic of Kosovo” tried to take over town halls of the three municipalities with the Serbian majority population. The new mayors of the towns in the north were elected in illegitimate elections, boycotted by the Serbian community. The Serbian people, gathered to defend their town halls from the pro-imperialist Kosovo authorities, were met with severe violence. The strongest conflicts happened on Monday when the local police were aided by KFOR – the official NATO forces responsible for the occupation of the province. Over 50 people were injured on both sides.
The occupation of Kosovo and Metohija, as well as the recent violence, are the fault of the USA and its NATO allies.
Therefore, we call on you to show international support for the people of occupied Kosovo by organizing demonstrations against violence, occupation, and the so-called “independence” of Kosovo. Since the Kosovo prime minister visited the US embassy right before the violence began, it is clear that he got permission from its imperialist masters. Therefore, the preferred locations for the protests are, if possible, the US embassies in your country.
The New communist party of Yugoslavia thanks all organizations who are expressing solidarity with the Serbian people of Kosovo, the victims of US imperialism. At this moment, it is of utmost importance to show international solidarity and the anti-imperialist struggle.
Please inform us about your actions. The pictures and videos of the protest are also desirable.
Comradely greetings from Belgrade!
