ATTAC and political parties [en]
In relation to repeating questions about the aims of our organization, we would like to explain that according to the rules set by the founders of our movement, ATTAC cannot serve the immediate interests of any parties or other political organizations.
We are above party conflicts and divisions and follow our own program. Party lines cannot determine our actions. That does not mean we do not accept party activists in our ranks, only that we expect them to remain completely neutral concerning party goals, leaders and political careers in any of their ATTAC activity.
The divisions and conflicts among Poland’s political circles and building unclear pressure groups within social organizations do not aid our activity. We would like to constructively participate in Poland’s young democracy, which is still shaping and searching for its own expression.
In this spirit we seek new contacts and cooperation with all open and democratic groups and circles.
We hope for the support and understanding of people and organizations who wish us well.
We also hope for an end to unnecessary attacks and intrigue. They cause nothing but destruction and confusion which hinder our social activity.
