The Executive Committee of the Young Communist League released the following statement to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance 2019.

The YCL unequivocally opposes transphobia and discrimination in all its forms. Under capitalism discrimination and prejudice are tools of the ruling class to divide and distract working people. Oppression and capitalism are inseparable and intrinsically linked.

We condemn transphobia in our society, express solidarity with those facing discrimination and remembers those killed because of transphobia.

We reiterate our demand for:

Transphobia and the attacks inflicted on the community are a sad indictment on our society. Working people must take up the struggle and rid our society of transphobia.

No to discrimination! Yes to LGBT+ rights!

Not one more death!
