Communist Party of Swaziland
Thursday 8 February 2023:- The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) stands in solidarity with earthquake victims in both Syria and Turkey. The CPS conveys its solidarity with the families whose loved ones were lost and wishes speedy recovery for all injured.
The CPS salutes the efforts of the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) and the working class in mobilising rescue efforts as well as providing meaningful aid to those who need it. In this regard, the CPS calls for more support for the people of the two affected countries and ensure that help reaches even those in the coldest of places. The region is also faced by devastating cold weather, making rescue efforts more difficult.
The rebuilding process in both Syria and Turkey will be an arduous one. The CPS calls for more practical support with the people and the lifting of sanctions against Syria. Sanctions can never be an excuse for allowing the Syrian people to continue to be devastated by the earthquake and its consequences.
