The CWPUSA stands with the masses of students demonstrating against the barbarity of the murderous Israeli state against the Palestinian people. With the support of the US and its allies, for over 6 months, the massacre in Gaza has led to 40,000 dead, including 20,000 dead children.

We condemn the arrests and crackdown against the students at the universities of Yale, Colombia, MIT, NYU, South California and Texas at Austin (UT). We express our solidarity with the struggle of the students who are facing repression at the hands of the so-called “progressive” government of Biden who is willfully dumping billions of dollars into the state of Israel to continue the slaughter. These “progressive values” are shared by the US and its allies in the governments of the European Union which attempt to absolve the crimes of Israel through the pretext of “right to self defense.”

The repression on the universities demonstrates the bourgeois character of the schools, which, in the hands of business owners, do not hesitate to mobilize shock troops when business is interrupted. This is precisely why, under the domination of the capitalist system, there is no freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of the proliferation of ideas.

The youth of the US are proving that they are on the right side of history, expressing their solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The CWPUSA joins the voices of the students who continue their struggle despite the various forms of repression.

The youth have made it clear:

“We will not back down!” 

“Stop the financing of genocide!”
