Freedom for Turkish Prisoners

International Council Conference notes that October 24, 2008 is the 4th Court Hearing of the 23 Socialists and Communists in Istanbul, Turkey. They are in prison since September of 2006 for having organized the working class and laborers struggles for freedom and socialism. The Turkish fascist government wants to charge them to a total of 3,000 years in prison.

We condemn this attack on these Socialists and Communists of Turkey and North Kurdistan and demand that they should be released immediately!

We condemn the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia and the occupation of the Serbian province of Kosovo.

Be it resolved that the imperialist forces of occupation must vacate the Province of Kosovo and all of the Republics of former Yugoslavia.
