Reconstruction communiste du Canada Comité Québec endorses in reblogging PCUSA statement.
« In the United States police officers and elected official have ties with hate groups and murder African-American people regularly, such as Walter Scott, who was killed by police in Charleston on April 4th, 2015. Public bodies including the State of South Carolina use variations of the Confederate Flag, a symbol of terror against the African-American Community on official state emblems. Institutional racism oppresses the African-American community and breeds terrorists such as Dylan Roof.
Our Party recognizes that only a mass anti-racist movement with clear-cut demands can challenge institutional racism and prevent another tragedy like the Charleston massacre. In that spirit, we put forward the following demands:
– An immediate Act of Congress banning the use of any variation of the Confederate Flag by all state or federal bodies
– A Congressional rebuke to the 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision Shelby v. Holder that struck section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 rendering section 5 unenforceable
– A Congressional Bill enacting an amendment to the US Constitution codifying the Voting Rights Act of 1965 as the foundation of civil rights for this nation
And RCC(CQ) would like to add this: only People may decide in this kinda issue. It is all about the future of society matter. Does People want to live in racist society what capitalists are proposing or Free and Equal communist society ?
