The day before the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Peoples’ Poland, the 5th Congress of the Communist Party of Poland (KPP) was held with the participation of several dozen delegates of the regional structures of Party. Lefteris Nikolaou, representative of the Communist Party of Greece and member of the European Parliament, also attended the congress.

The congress was held in a difficult period for the KPP, when repressions and persecution against the communists continue. The trial of the KPP members and editorial staff of the Brzask newspaper entered a new stage when the District Court in Katowice sustained the prosecutor’s demand to renew the trial and decided to return the case to the first instance court. The campaign of falsifying history about Peoples' Poland is strengthening with the sharpening of the article 256 of the penal law, penalising promotion of the communist ideology, use of the communist symbols and equating communism with fascism. In this situation, the Congress unanimously decided that party cannot modify its statute by resigning from its Marxist-Leninist ideology. The Congress announced the continuation of the previous political line of the Party and struggle against the repressions by the authorities.

In May, just 10 days before the elections to the European Parliament, Polish authorities made remarkable amendments to the penal code, including the ban of communist activity (article 256). Despite the widespread opinion of lawyers that changes of the code violate the constitution and human rights, the Constitutional Court is currently controlled by the judges nominated by the government.

Communist and Workers' Parties oppose the anti-communist initiatives of the Polish Government by revealing the anit-communist motive behind these changes:

Letter of solidarity with the Communist Party of Poland

Dear comrades,

Congratulationson your recent victory when the regional court in Dąbrowa Górnicza acquitted themembers of the editorial board of the Communist Party of Poland magazine “Brzask”and the website of the Communist Party of Poland of charges of “promoting a totalitariansystem”.

KPP PolandOn the 18th of January the regional court in Dąbrowa Górnicza acquitted of the members of the editorial board of the Communist Party of Poland magazine „Brzask” and party's website of charges of „promoting totalitarian system”.

On December 3, 2018 the CPRF branches in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad and Smolensk arranged a series of protest actions as a part of international campaign in support of the Communist Party of Poland which is under persecution of the Polish government.

Hands off the Communist Party of Poland! That was the demand of protesters to the Polish authority explicitly indicated by CPRF speakers.

In Poland, the 11th of November again became a pretext to promote the militarism and fascism. The authorities of the Polish state marched hand in hand with the nationalists. Once again the red and white banners serve as a cover-up for xenophobia, racism, and fascism. Poland's rulers once again use the nationalist euphoria in order to divert the attention from real social problems. The Polish state again gives the citizens nationalist paraphernalia instead of what they really need.

comunistaThe Communist Party of Poland wishes to express its utmost indignation at the destruction of the monument commemorating the soldiers of the Red Army situated in the Skaryszewski Park in Warsaw. The monument was erected on the site where soldiers fallen in 1944 during the liberation of Prague district were buried. The inhabitants of this district have regarded this monument as an integral part of the Park for years and the overwhelming majority of them wished to preserve it. It has been the last monument commemorating the liberation of Warsaw outside the cemetery-mausoleum of Soviet soldiers.

The Communist Party of Poland denounced the political persecution launched by the Polish authorities who on the other hand promote neo-nazis.

According to a statement issued by the Communist Party of Poland (CPP), on the 11th of May police entered the conference on Marxism held in Szczecin University’s facilities in Pobierowo. The functionaries acting on demand of the prosecutor’s office were searching for evidence of “promoting totalitarian system”.

The Communist Party of Greece denounces the unacceptable persecution by the Polish authorities and the Polish government against a professor who organized a conference on Marxism at the University of Szczecin.

The repetition of the anticommunist trial against the CP of Poland and its cadres is scheduled for March 1st.

It is a trial that has been continuing for the last two years, with the provocative accusation of “propaganda of communist ideology” in the newspaper “Brzask” and the website of the CP of Poland, with threats of sentences of up to two years in prison.

The Polish authorities, which set up this trial, are attempting to outlaw the CP of Poland. A new law on de-communisation was also introduced to remove monuments and the names of the streets associated with the history of the workers’ and communist movement. These anti-communist measures are created as part of a process of rewriting history.
