For the vast majority of the population, voting is useless. From one election to the next, the wealth gap continues to widen, attacks on workers are multiplying, the military budget increases, wars against the peoples of exploited countries carries on, indigenous peoples’ extreme poverty persists, and that, no matter the ruling party, whether right or “left”. The reason for this is very simple: under capitalism, despite universal suffrage, it is those who hold Capital—banks, industry, natural resources, trade, media, etc.—who decide. State and parliament, despite their democratic varnish, are in reality nothing but the apparatuses used by the bourgeoisie—the social

It’s the 45th anniversary of the assassination of the representative of the international proletariat in Turkey, the founder of the TKP/ML (Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist) Ibrahim Kaypakkaya.

Comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya was only 24 when he was murdered by the severe tortures from the fascist Turkish state on the 18th of May. Kaypakkaya founded the TKP/ML when he was 23 years old.

Ibrahim Kaypakkaya succeeded in becoming the permanent leader of the communist idea and the correct revolutionary line in Turkey.

He is one of the best disciple of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. He evaluated his own ideas and the

On May 1st 2018—on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, and on the 170th anniversary of the first issue of the Manifesto of the Communist Party, written by Marx and Engels—is the great opportunity to affirm their relevance and power, as living weapons of the communists and the proletarians of yesterday, today and forever.

“The history of every society that has existed so far is a history of class struggle.”

“The whole society splits into two great enemy camps, into two great classes directly opposed: bourgeoisie and proletariat.”

“The political power of the modern state is just

Today, the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) begins its twelfth year of existence with the launching of a broad political offensive against the Canadian imperialist bourgeoisie. We are setting forth on a 15-month campaign which will notably aim to organize a vast and robust group of workers and proletarians for May Day 2019, when we will call for a demonstration of a new breadth in downtown Montreal, to be joined by combative actions elsewhere in Canada, marking the centennial of the Winnipeg General Strike in red ink. With this initiative, we will allow the revolt of the popular masses to grow

Too few people are aware that March 8 was born out of the revolutionary fervor of communist women, who in 1910, meeting for the 2nd Socialist International, decided to add a day to the calendar celebrating the courage of proletarians in constant struggle against their capitalist exploiters. Women such as Clara Zetkin and Alexandra Kollontai wanted the proletariat to pay a yearly tribute to its feminine component; they wanted the bourgeoisie to tremble yearly, faced with the tenacity of working women

Sunday, January 28th will mark the 11th anniversary of the founding of the Revolutionary Communist Party (PCR-RCP). On this occasion, the Party will organise an evening of celebration at the Maison Norman Bethune in Montreal. The event will allow for presenting the content of the 10th edition of the theoretical magazine Arsenal. The evening will as well constitute the launch of a broad political initiative entitled “Let us fight for socialism and our demands”, a 15-month campaign

Dear comrades of the Maoist Communist Party:

It is with great emotion that we learned of the death of your comrade—we should say our comrade—Pierre, after a tragic accident.

Comrade Pierre embodies Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and the struggle to defend, develop and apply it in order to advance the world revolution. The pain of his loss, of which you eloquently testify, is deeply felt by all those who are fighting for socialism and communism, be it in Quebec, in Canada and all over the world. His immense contribution of a whole life serving the revolution will not have been in vain: it

This past November 7th, heeding to the call of the Revolutionary Communist Party, a strong contingent of partisans of socialism took to the streets and marched through downtown Montreal to mark the centennial of the Great October Revolution of 1917. This demonstration was the peak moment of weeks of intense mobilization, organization, agitation and propaganda that contributed to the politicization of a great number of proletarians in multiple cities in Quebec.

Written upon one of the two giant banners that made up the head of the contingent was to be found a single word in big characters, “SOCIALISM”. One word,

This past March 21st, the opportunist clique—sitting on the Central Committee of an organization which falsely claims to be the Revolutionary Communist Party (PCR-RCP)—published the document “On the RPFF and the Oppression of Women” (in its English version only) on its website (pcrrcp.wordpress.com), a document that had been prepared by the activists of the Revolutionary Proletarian Feminist Front (RPFF) and by women members of the RCP in the Quebec District. The same day, the opportunist clique also published the documents “Break with Old Ideas” and “Statement of support for the Central Committee”.

The publicization of the first document, “On the

We are publishing three documents (see the Annexes following this introduction) that circulated within the ranks of the RCP last year and that served as fodder for a campaign aimed at tarnishing the reputation of the Montreal section − the Party’s historical center and its most populous and active cell in Canada −, a campaign put together by the right-opportunist clique in control of the Central Committee before the recent split, and who is now behind the website pcrrcp.wordpress.com.

These documents were prepared by the three protagonists who were resolutely ejected from the Maison Norman Bethune this past March
