In the statement concerning the issue it was stated that, “The fascist state whose history is filled with massacres continues to carry out flat out attacks towards the workers, toilers and impoverished. Showing the state of emergency as an excuse democratic rights are being disregarded.” While stressing out the necessity of armed struggle being brought to light again, the statement called upon the fact that the state has been establishing and arming its own paramilitary forces.
