Statement by the Communist Party, USA on todays attacks in London

The Communist Party, USA condemns the series of bomb attacks today in London. We condemn all terrorist acts targeting civilians with violence, whether conducted by individuals, governments or groups. The number of casualties is as yet unknown, but the devastation and loss of human life of every race, religion and nationality is severe. Today’s attack should be treated as a criminal act and not as an excuse for further war, attacks on civil liberties and military aggression.

It is increasingly clear that the US/UK occupation of Iraq and other aspects of the “war on terrorism” are failures. Thanks to the war the world is less safe not more.

We convey deepest sorrow and solidarity with the British people and all those who suffered from the terrorist attack. We applaud the heroic rescue workers and individual working people who have banded together to aid each other in this time of need.
