Since the announcement of this year’s L'Humanité Festival from 13-15th September 2024, preparations began for the Tareek Al-Shaab (People’s Path) Tent's participation at the festival. It comes in the year of celebration of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Iraqi Communist Party. This year we will not only participate, but also celebrate an occasion that is close to the hearts of Iraqi communists and their friends. Therefore, the work of the Tent’s Preparatory Committee began early in order to organise a successful celebration. Plans were drawn up by various working groups which were formed to manage the different areas of organisation, including youth, media and logistics. We hope that all participants and visitors will spend a joyful time in the presence of comrades, friends and young people whose special participation will add to the celebratory atmosphere.

The invitation is addressed to a wide audience of Iraqis from all over the world, raising red banners for “a Free Homeland and a Happy People,” led by young people who are both party members and supporters. It is an occasion at which Iraqis from all diaspora countries meet and declare their support for the Iraqi Communist Party. As always, we will meet on Thursday 12th September, the eve of the Festival, to mark a long history of struggle and sacrifice.

Immediately after a successful weekend for the Tareek Al-Shaab Tent in 2023, the Party’s organisations outside the homeland that had participated were called upon to evaluate the organisational work and submit their reports in order to improve future planning. The Preparatory Committee has held regular meetings to ensure the most successful festival weekend for the Tent yet, and to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Party’s founding.

The Tent’s youth team invites all Iraqis to get involved in the build up to its celebrations by participating in the various working groups for organisation, promotion, setting up the Tent, setting up the equipment, sales and taking part in the cultural programme. The aim is for everyone to be able to create and work and at the same time enjoy the Festival’s cultural and political programme. It is an opportunity to meet young people from all over the world and enjoy musical performances from well-known bands and singers from Europe and around the world, as well as a whole host of other political and cultural activities and events.

In coordination between the Party's Media Office Abroad and the Tent’s media team, an advertising campaign is being produced to reflect the committees’ plans. Comrades, friends and youth are invited to participate in this year's Festival by sharing their regular reports and promotional films to encourage the widest engagement, interest and participation possible.

In preparation for the largest celebration outside Iraq, particularly on the year of the 90th anniversary of the Party's founding, the logistics team has gone to great lengths to ensure a smooth weekend for the Tent’s visitors. To deal with the problem of transportation from hotels to the Tent and vice versa, three buses have been booked. This is intended to overcome the transport difficulties due to the distance of the venue from the city of Paris. The team is coordinating with the youth groups, the Women's League and the Association of Communist Partisans to determine all requirements for the success of the celebrations and the Tent programme this year. In order to make traveling to the Festival site easier, the team recommends booking hotels in the immediate vicinity or in the same residential area to make accessing the buses easier.
