Message From the World Peace Council
To the Workers' Party of Ireland
Dear comrades and friends
It is with deep concern and worry to hear that comrade Sean Garland was recently arrested by
the local authorities in Dublin, when we know about his long, outstanding and firm positions against imperialism and its policies
around the world.
We wish to express our solidarity and support to Sean Garland and demand his immediate release,
denouncing all efforts to give in to the pressure of the US authorities which demand his extradition to the USA.
It constitutes a flagrant violation of basic democratic rights and liberties, of any sense of
International law to observe this brutal interference of the US administration in other countries' affairs.
The cooperation of the European Union and its member states with the US agencies on so called anti-terror
basis can not be accepted under no pretext. Their goal is to terrorize the peoples' movements and intimidate the will of the
peoples which are resisting the imperialist plans, whether it is about wars,invasion, occupation, militarization or oppression
of the peoples' free will.
Free Sean Garland immediately! Down with the vindictive

Communist Party of Sweden- Skp Condemn the Arrest
of Former Workers Party President Sean Garland
The Communist Party
of Sweden- SKP has been reached by the
message that Sean Garland, former President of the Workers
Party of Ireland,
this morning, the 2nd of January has been
arrested outside the Workers' Party Head Office in Dublin.
The arrest of
Sean Garland took place after a request from
the US authorities, who want to extradite him to the United
Garland as well as the Workers' Party have made clear
that they will fight any attempt at extradition to the U.S.
the Irish courts. The SKP fully support them and
want to ask the Irish Government and court why an Irish
have to live under an other jurisdiction
than the Irish, in his own land? Or like further on
concerning this matter,
risk to be extradite to the USA,
through the authorities of his own land?
Arresting Sean Garland outside the Party's
Head Office is
an unmistakable political provocation by the Irish
authorities in cooperation with US-imperialists.
