We call for struggle against the fascists’ organizations, ideologies, and apologists – from SIAN and the Nazi group NMR, to Sylvi Listhaug and Tybring Gjedde. And not least – we shame the system, the prime minister and the police, and we call for a fight against the very basis of Islamophobia: imperialism and the bourgeois state.

Opportunists do not understand this and Rødt will grant even more money to the defense budget, but the revolutionaries know that the armed struggle that the masses can and will wage will sweep imperialism from the planet.
