Upon joining, Baba Aye, Co-convener of CORE, said:

“Capitalist greed has brought barbarism upon us and the far-right increasingly spreads reactionary ideas like racism, ethnicism meant to divide working-class people and youth. Never before has the need been so pressing for revolutionary and radical forces to unite and fight, within and between countries, for a better world. CORE thus proudly lifts the revolutionary banner high for social progress and ecological justice, in the ranks of the Progressive International”

You can also find a statement from Baba Aye calling for a people’s uprising against an illegitimate regime in Nigeria in theimmediate aftermath of the Lekki & Alausa massacre on our Wire page here.
