What we stand for
SEA OF FIRES – Galizan Committee for Internationalist Solidarity is a Galizan organization that works in the field of international solidarity. It abides by three fundamental principles:
We reject and denounce foreign intervention, whether in the form of war or in others, less visible and spectacular but equally harmful to the interests of the intervened peoples. We reject, therefore, all the mechanisms through which imperialism is exerted: From NATO to the IMF and the World Bank, or through other institutions that, disguised as organizations of solidarity or of support for development, employ false solidarity as a way of legitimizing their true, interventionist goals. In the conflict between imperialism and invaded peoples, we shall always stand by the peoples. By the peoples of Iran, Afghanistan, Lybia and Syria, with all of the peoples of South America that chose to stop being the backyard of the USA and of Europe, and with any people suffering at the hands of imperialist capitalism. Here we stand.
We recognize the differences between self-determination, independence and sovereignty. We recognize the right of every people to full sovereignty. From these standpoints, we support each and every of the sovereignist processes of the stateless nations of the world, from Africa to Asia and Oceania; from America to Europe. In the conflict between the peoples in struggle for their sovereignty and the respective States, we shall always stand by the peoples. With Palestine, with Kurdistan, with the Sahara, with Wallmapu, with Québec, with Euskal Herria, with Scotland, with Brittany, with Corsica, with Occitania, and so many others.
Here we stand.
We are a Galizan organization for solidarity. Our conception of solidarity is that it is exercised horizontally, between political entities. It requires, therefore, of mutual understanding and dialogue. The international projection of the Galizan cause, as the cause of a nation denied by the State of Spain, is the third essential standpoint of our organization. The fact of being a plundered and intervened people gives us the particular viewpoint necessary to understand, in all its dimensions, the necessity of weaving networks of solidarity and of explaining to the world that we exist, that we no longer wish to remain invisible. Here we stand.
