ILPS HAILS JOURNALIST FOR HURLING SHOES AT BUSH

-

By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairman, International Coordinating Committee
International League of Peoples’ Struggle
15 December 2008

The International League of Peoples’ Struggle joins the Iraqi and Arab peoples and the peoples of the entire world in hailing the journalist Muntadhar al-Zeidi of Cairo-based Al-Bahgdadia as a hero for hurling his shoes at the US imperialist chieftain and No. 1war criminal and terrorist George W. Bush.

When he hurled his shoes at Bush, Al-Zeidi clearly expressed the pain and suffering as well as the resistance of the Iraqi people when he shouted at Bush, “This is a farewell kiss, you dog. This is from the widows, orphans and those you have killed in Iraq.

Hurling the shoes at Bush expresses the contempt and condemnation of the people for the horrendous crimes of aggression and occupation committed by Bush against Iraq and the Iraqi people. It is a meaningful and courageous act, a powerful symbolic act of protest witnessed by the people of the world through television and other mass media.

The crimes of Bush include the killing and wounding of millions of Iraqi people, the destruction of the social and economic infrastructure of Iraq, US seizure and control of Iraqi oil and other resources and the perpetuation of US military bases and forces through the US security pact with the Iraqi puppet regime.

The International League of Peoples’ Struggle condemns the physical and psychological torture that the hero of the Arab people, Muntadhar al-Zeidi, is being subjected to and demands his immediate release from the clutches of his US and Iraqi puppet interrogators and torturers.###

Decision on the petition for proscription against the CPP-NPA as terrorist organizations filed by the DOJ on 21 Feb 2018 with the RTC branch...

The Program of the CPP which is also synonymous with “Plan of Action”, can be construed as the respondent organizations’ “purpose for being,” or the very reasons for its establishment. A perusal of the foregoing Program, consisting of lofty ideals readily shows that the CPP-NPA is organized or exists, not for the purpose engaging in terrorism.
