We have received the following message of solidarity with the people of Ferguson from Farooq Tariq, one of the leaders of the Awami Workers Party of Pakistan:
Awami Workers Party Pakistan condemn the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. It was an act of sheer racism that black youth often met in US cities. The mass anger after death shows the discontent among the working class against such acts of barbarism. The bitter resentment among many local black population about their treatment at the hands of an almost white police force and local authorities will not die down after this unfortunate incident. Racism is used to confuse the white working class to divert attention from the real issues confronting US capitalism.
We express our deep solidarity with the family and friends of Michael Brown and those carrying out struggle against racism. We agree with the slogan, ” no justice no peace” the fight is on
