CPA (SA) Statement on Paris terror attacks
This 25th South Australian State Conference of the Communist Party of Australia condemns the horrific terrorist attacks that have taken place in Paris in recent hours.
In particular, we express our deepest sympathies with the families and friends of those killed, injured and otherwise directly affected.
While we acknowledge that the spread of terrorism is the direct result of US and its coalition partners' efforts to expand their financial and strategic interests across the globe, we emphasise our Party's view that terrorism is counter-productive, indiscriminate and an illegitimate form of political struggle.
Finally, we call on the Australian Federal Government to protect its citizens against the possibility of similar attacks on Australian soil by immediately ending its military alliance with the United States and adopting a foreign policy based on peaceful co-existence with all nations.
