3rd Euro-Mediterranean Conference
Proposed by the Balkan Delegates from Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, and voted unanimously by the 3rd Euro-Mediterranean Conference.
Because of the deepening of the world capitalist crisis, the Balkan Peninsula is, right now, a site of great poverty and misery but also of huge popular resistance, social unrest and uprisings.
We strongly believe we cannot fight against imperialist forces without fighting capitalism at the national level, safeguarded by the bourgeois states and their governments. We conclude that the current governments of the Balkan countries are just an instrument in the hands of the imperialist Western powers. We have to fight to overthrow them by revolutionary means.
Finally, and most important, we emphasize that reformism is not an alternative to the harsh consequences of capitalist crisis. The only solution is the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism in our countries. In the Balkans, this necessitates also the unity of the working class of the region, which is the force that can achieve social emancipation through the transformation of society.
We decide to work together towards building a Balkan Federation of the united and free peoples of the Peninsula!
