  • What do we hope to achieve?

This event hosted by Revolutionary Student Movement-PTBO and Revolutionary Communist Party-PTBO (Organizing Committee) is part of a national day of action calling for a boycott of the 2015 Federal Election. However all are welcome to this disscussion.

At the end of the longest—and probably most meaningless—election campaign in Canadian history, let’s make one thing clear: these election aren’t legitimate, and neither is the state that runs them!

Across the country, mobilizations for the Day of Action, called as part of the 2015 Election Boycott Campaign, will drive this message home on October 18th.

We know that, whether it’s an election year or not, we’ll be lied to by the politicians who serve the ruling class. We know that, no matter who we elect,

From the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee-Toronto website:

On the afternoon of Saturday, September 19, 2015, a racist, xenophobic group by the name of PEGIDA Canada attempted to hold an anti-Muslim, anti-refugee rally at Queen’s Park. PEGIDA is a fascist group that originated in Germany, their name stands for Patriotische Europäer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West). Their main political activity is organizing demonstrations in the imperialist centres to advance anti-Islam, white supremacist and xenophobic politics, hiding behind the liberal language of “anti-misogyny,” “anti-violence,” and “anti-hate.”

But anti-racist and anti-fascist organizations and individuals have

Fascists Attack the RSM, Fail Miserably

From the Revolutionary Student Movement website:

Wednesday, September 23, 2015—A meeting of the Revolutionary Student Movement – Algonquin College was attacked by fascists. A group of neo-Nazis attempted to prevent the RSM’s first meeting of the 2015-2016 school year. Like cowards, they tore down a number of posters put up by the RSM before disrupting the meeting itself. The fascists then tried to enter the room where the meeting was happening. They were confronted by RSM organizers and were prevented from doing so. Shortly after, the fascists left and the RSM meeting continued.

It is now clear that there are

Welcome to the second issue of The Red Flag quarterly magazine, a periodical promoting the views of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Canada [PCR-RCP] as well as those written by the revolutionary milieu of supporters, sympathizers, and fellow travellers. The theme of this issue is the upcoming Canadian federal election, with a particular focus on the PCR-RCP’s boycott campaign.

There has been a lot of noise about how this election is uniquely important, a chance to oust the Conservatives, an opportunity for the NDP to outflank the Liberals and form the government for the first time in history. On the

– A Call from the Revolutionary Communist Party

With an early declaration of an election campaign by the Harper government, we find ourselves at the beginning of a 78-day campaign period in the lead-up to the October 19 federal election. In fact, before it was even officially called, the parties vying to administer the capitalist state had already been campaigning for several weeks. Their hope may be that, with such a long campaign, they will convince us that this election is a “special moment in Canadian democracy.” For most of us, though, it’s a waste of time!

One after the

Every election there is at least one issue that social democratic supporters of the electoral system claim is a reason for every member of the progressive camp to participate in voting for the “lesser evil” so as to get the Conservatives out of power at any cost. The truth, of course, is that supporters of the NDP and the electoral circus will always find some excuse—some supposedly crucial issue—to endorse the system as a whole: these issues are always MacGuffins used to justify an ideology of systemic support. This is not to say they do not possess some truth, or

Since the unprecedented “Orange Wave” during the last federal election, the NDP has undergone substantial changes—a new leader, former Liberal cabinet minister Tom Mulcair; the removal of any reference to “socialism” from its constitution, a significant if only superficial change; and a new orientation toward being a “government-in-waiting,” now compelled both to make promises it may actually be expected to deliver on, and to appeal to a large enough section of the ruling class to actually form government. Perhaps more than ever before, the Party has the attention, support, and enthusiasm of “progressives” in Canada, from garden-variety left-liberals all the

American imperialism is so undeniably a central part of the contemporary world system that even mainstream writers acknowledge its existence. Canadian imperialism, by contrast, is an idea viewed with scepticism and discomfort, even by large sections of the Canadian left. The most naïve convince themselves that Canada’s international engagements have a positive effect in the world, while those who cannot ignore the negatives outcomes of Canadian policy insist that Canada simply falls in line with the interests of the United States.

This latter position is most clearly articulated by Linda McQuaig, who describes Canada as Uncle Sam’s accomplice, “holding the
