Statement by the New International Council
Solidarity with Soviet People!
Restore the Soviet Union!
Fifty four delegates from former Soviet Union, Europe, the America’s, Asia and Africa have gathered in Toronto, from September 23 to 25, 2005 at the Second World Congress for Friendship and Solidarity with Soviet People, in the renewed Friendship House in Toronto, Canada. The other 15 delegates that registered from other countries, most of them from the former Soviet Union, were refused visas by Canadian authorities in their countries, even though they applied in time and some had booked their airline flights to come to the Second World Congress.
This year, the peoples of the world have marked the 60th Anniversary of Victory, attained by the anti-Hitler coalition countries over Nazi Germany and the militarist Japan, and of the end of the Second World War. Progressive humanity recognizes that in that victory, the decisive contribution of the Soviet Union and of its glorious Red Army, headed by J.V. Stalin was decisive to this world historic victory.
The International Council was founded at the First World Congress in 2001. It’s aim was to establish friendship links between the Soviet people and the people all over the world, by means of mutual visits, information exchange and learning culture from other countries. This versatile activity is embedded in the perspective of the re-establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), in the spirit of its founding fathers, Lenin and Stalin, and defending the class interests of the working people in all countries.
The Second World Congress voted and passed the following resolutions:
against US-imperialism, the new world order and the US-led wars around the world
in defence of political prisoners in the CIS-states and the Baltic States
in defence of president Milosevic against imperialist terror
for the establishment of Friendship Societies with Foreign Countries in every former Soviet republic and to hold the Third World Congress in 2007 in Moscow, Russia
to protest to the Canadian government for refusing visas to many delegates coming to the Congress
to protest the lynching of the Kurdish people in Turkey
in defence of the struggle of the Cuban and Venezuelans revolutions
in defence of the struggle of the Nepalese people
The Second World Congress approved the tremendous achievements of the Northstar Compass journal, informing monthly, already for 14 years, readers in most countries of the world about the situation and realisations of the Soviet Union, and the struggle to restore it. The journal is printed in English and French language and it appears on the Web Page – www.northstarcompass.org. This Congress also decided to publish NSC also in Russian. The Congress participants appealed to all progressive people of the world to subscribe to the journal, and to make financial donations to its support, in order to guarantee the continuation of the NSC journal and the International Council.
An important step forward has been realized by the decision to found, as the partner of the International Council for Friendship and Solidarity with Soviet People, in the former Soviet Union, the "Soviet Society for Friendship and Solidarity with Foreign Countries".
This Society will be presided over by Georgi I. Tikhonov and its Chairman will be Vladimir Chechentsev and, its base will be in Moscow, plus having representatives in all of the former republics of the Soviet Union.
Michael Lucas of Canada has been re-elected unanimously as the Chairman of the International Council and also Editor of Northstar Compass journal.
