(en) Statement anarchists Moldova: On the prohibition symbol "Hammer and Sickle" (ru) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 12:32:10 +0200

The need to clarify our position on the prohibition symbol "Hammer and Sickle" consider it necessary to state the following: ---- 1. Anarchists have always been against the repressive attitude to work, both the Nazis and by the Stalinists. However, the last controversial law is devoid of purpose to condemn the repression against the people, and is populisky character, in order to attract far-right, nationalist and anti-communist electorate. Also this law aims to crackdown on "opposition" PCRM (the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova). ---- 2. Just think it is important to note that PCRM has never acted in the interests of the workers, and "Hammer and Sickle" it inherited from the Soviet past, it actively uses to attract nostalgic citizens Soviet generation. Ban on the use of those symbols will hit the party's electoral performance.

3. The scandal surrounding this law is beneficial parties of the ruling Alliance for European Integration. Government is trying to distract people from the serious economic and social problems, that is, for want of bread, give people shows. A "red" opposition tries to divert the workers from fighting for their interests. Put their party interests above the interests of the workers. Hammer and sickle, the only thing that ties with the Soviet Communist past. The ban of the symbol would negate the disorganization of the labor movement, from kom.partii. It loses its leverage over the toiling masses.

4. We strongly oppose the suppression of dissent by the authorities. Despite our ideological differences with the communists, we categorically do not accept political censorship, as well as all kinds of restrictive measures.

5. We call upon the people of Moldova not to succumb to these cheap provocation and fight for their social interests. Just call not to be like "fetish", for no prohibition of any character was, will not stop the workers' struggle for their own class interests. Ban "hammer and sickle" can only affect those who are trying, of this character derive political benefits.

Sincerely group of anarchists Moldova
