In the following we document a translation of the statement released a view day ago by Construction Committee of the Maoist Communist Party of Galicia condemning the sentence imposed upon the 23 young revolutionaries in Brazil.

Declaration of the CC of the Maoist Communist Party of Galicia vigorously condemns the conviction of 23 young activists in Brazil

In the face of the sentence, that was released the past 17th of June, of nine years in jail for 23 activists who participated in the mobilization against the FIFA World Cup in 2013 and his nefarious and corrupt management, we want to publicly take position and state:

1) Our total repudiation of the sentence imposed by the bourgeois courts of the old and corrupt state of Brazil, that seeks to silence the just protests of the popular masses who are committed to a new society with violence and repression. In their neo-fascist drift they seek to put an end to their own democratic rights, such as those for manifestation or expression. We say: The sentences, which will sooner or later be swept away by the masses have no legitimacy.

2) Our total and full support and solidarity with the repressed comrades and in particular with comrade Igor Mendes, recognized fighter for the Rights of the People, as well as with the call for mobilization made by 13 of those sentenced. We say: You are not alone! You represent a firm banner of red struggle for the new democracy.

3) We make a vigorous appeal to the international mobilization of the revolutionary and democratic forces against this new repressive action of the Tamer regime of the odious Brazilian oligarchy which aims to liquidate the people's movement.
