|Subject:||Victims of Communism Memorial Month|
|As we approach the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we intend to introduce a resolution that would recognize November 2019 as Victims of Communism Memorial Month.
Over 100 million people lost their lives in the 20th Century to governments modeled after the teachings of philosopher Karl Marx, the father of Communism.
While the promises of equality for all can be tantalizing, communist regimes have historically held power by restricting the flow of information, limiting civil liberties, and silencing those who spoke out against their injustices.
Please join us in cosponsoring this resolution so that we will never forget the innocents who lost their lives to despots who used the promise of freedom and equality to subjugate and control entire nations.
