The Communist Party-backed Occupy Wall Street movement got a tremendous cheer at a recent meeting of international “resistance fighters,” Trevor Loudon reports at Big Government.
According to the Workers World:
The Third International Conference of the International Anti-Imperialist and Peoples Solidarity Coordinating Committee met in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from Nov. 27 to 29. The conference’s theme was “Imperialist Attack: Economic, Political, Cultural and Military Aggression and Occupation.” Special reference was made to imperialist aggression in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Cuba and the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea.
The Socialist Party of Bangladesh was a co-sponsor of the event that included 800 official delegates from 24 countries. Among those in attendance was a delegation from the North Korean Communist Party and a cadre from the U.S. Workers World Party.
“Today we are witnessing … throughout the world, including in the Middle East, North Africa, Latin America, and even in the metropolitan capitalist countries and in the very citadel of imperialism, waves of people’s movements surging forth,” Manik Mukerjee, Secretary General of the IAPSCC, said in the keynote address.
The Workers World added:
Sara Flounders, a Workers World Party Secretariat member, who is on the IAPSCC’s executive committee, expressed solidarity with the conference at a time when people of the world are rising up. When she mentioned Occupy Wall Street, the crowd roared. Flounders later presided over a conference session.
Sara Flounders’ party is neck deep in the Occupy movement, especially in centers such as New York, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
Since its inception, the Occupy movement has been endorsed by a number of radical organizations including the Communist Party USA and the American Nazi Party. It has also been endorsed by David Duke as well as the Chinese Communist Party and radical Islamist organizations.
Even GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul expressed support for their view on the Federal Reserve.
“If they were demonstrating peacefully, and making a point, and arguing our case, and drawing attention to the Fed — I would say, good!” he told Reason magazine.
Many Democrats, including Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) have endorsed the protests that have spread across the nation, despite the overwhelming evidence of their violent nature.
Waters dismissed the rape, arson, vandalism and assault as “life” that “happens.”
Occupy protesters are currently working to have their presence felt at the upcoming Iowa caucus.
