Urgent appeal: Protest Ukrainian fascist congress in Madrid

Dear comrades!

We appeal to you to organize widespread protests against the neo-fascist Ukrainian World Congress to be held in Madrid, Spain.

According to our information, on September 11-13, 2015, in Madrid, Spain, a neo-fascist, pro-Bandera rally will be organized by the Ukrainian World Congress. Within a few days in the Spanish capital, the international organization of Ukrainian nationalists plans to hold processions, meetings, and conferences aimed at supporting the fascist junta in Ukraine, which kills the residents of Donbass.

The organizers themselves state as their goals: coordination of Ukrainians throughout the world in support of Ukraine, to counter Russian disinformation and strengthen the UWC’s worldwide network. Support for the Ukrainian armed forces fighting in the east. Mobilize the diaspora to extert pressure on governments thoroughout the world to strengthen military aid to the Ukrainian authorities.

The program also includes a march and rally entitled, “Ukrainians of the world stand with Ukraine.”

The history and creation of this international organization is connected with one of the ideologues of Ukrainian fascism, R.Shuhevichem, who laid its foundations during the Great Patriotic War with the assistance of Nazi Germany. In fact, it was officially registered in 1967 with the support of the United States.

The Ukrainian World Congress, the organizer of these activities, is an international organization financed by the United States, which aims at promoting the dissemination of neo-Nazi ideology around the world through the Ukrainian diaspora, to create positive public opinion about the actions of the Ukrainian death squads in eastern Ukraine.

We urge all progressive, anti-fascist and working class forces, communist and socialist organizations, to unite and organize to fight against the international organization of Ukrainian supporters of fascism. To the extent possible, to organize pickets, rallies, and protests to prevent the events in Spain.

Fascism in Europe shall not pass!

Long live international communist solidarity!

With revolutionary greetings,
