A Call from the Revolutionary Student Movement:

Students of Canada: Rise-up! Pan-Canadian Day of Action, March 24

A Call from the Revolutionary Student Movement (MER-RSM):

This spring, students across Quebec will strike against austerity. The Spring 2015 movement has united students and workers in the fight for free and accessible education, and is benefitting from the lessons learned in the Maple Spring of 2012. Coming from outside the traditional student organizations, the Spring 2015 committee has already organized a number of actions to promote the upcoming strike. For instance, over 80,000 students went on strike against austerity on Halloween 2014. This is all leading up to February, when students in Quebec will be convening special general assemblies

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) joins widespread condemnation of the armed attack last January 7 against the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Three men armed with automatic weapons attacked and opened fire at the magazine office, killing at least 12 people, including its editor, writers and cartoonists. Several others were wounded. The CPP and the Filipino people extend their sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of the victims of this atrocious crime.

Shooting down people working in a magazine or newsroom is completely unacceptable. The victims of the massacre were unarmed and defenseless and

Executions at Charlie Hebdo: Against All Reactionaries, ‪#‎WeAreRevolutionaries‬


What happened today to Charlie Hebdo is terrible. We are appalled by these tragic deaths and by the killings of Charlie Hebdo journalists and staff. Our first thoughts go to their families, relatives, and colleagues.

We are incredulous and shocked by this execution. Many of us remember Wolinski’s [Charlie Hebdo cartoonist] early work where he denounced the reactionary Gaullists, and Cabu’s [Charlie Hebdo cartoonist] work where he mocked racist and macho “red-necks.” However we do not agree with the current politics of

FROM THE PROLETARIAN REVOLUTIONARY ACTION COMMITTEE-TORONTO:

Hasten the Revolution! Remember Comrade Leslie!

From the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee-Toronto:

Leslie Feinberg, who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist, died on Nov. 15. She succumbed to complications from multiple tick-borne co-infections, including Lyme disease, babeisiosis and protomyxzoa rheumatica, after decades of illness.

She died at home in Syracuse, N.Y., with her partner and spouse of 22 years, Minnie Bruce Pratt, at her side. Her last words were: “Hasten the revolution! Remember me as a revolutionary communist.” From the obituary written by Minnie Bruce Pratt from the paper of the Worker’s World Party.

At this time, we’re reminded

On September 21st, 2004, an important event occurred, which contributed to the advancement of the revolutionary forces in India and around the world—that is, the founding of the Communist Party of India (Maoist). This event is a source of inspiration for the world revolutionaries because it shows that it is possible to attain solid and principled unity at the political level through two-line struggle based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and the strategy of protracted people’s war.

India is the world’s second most populated country. It is a semi-colonial and semi-feudal country. Maoist presence in India is significant. In fact, areas of Indian

In recent weeks, massive protests unfolded in Québec against austerity measures imposed by the Couillard Government. Thirty thousand people took part in the October 31st demonstration organized by a coalition of local trade unions, student associations and community groups. A few days later, there were tens of thousands rallying in 12 cities against rate increases for child care. At the time of going to press, 100,000 people, and perhaps a little more, were expected in the streets of Montréal and Québec City on November 29 at demos organized by the provincial trade unions. All this, as calls are spreading for

On Wednesday, November 19th, the Revolutionary Student Movement—an anti-capitalist, militant student organization—carried out a protest against a Royal Canadian Mounted Police recruitment event on University of Toronto campus. The protest outside the Medical Science Building was joined by comrades from the Proletarian Feminist Front and the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee. Protestors handed out pamphlets to passing pedestrians and attendees of the RCMP propaganda session. The comrades led chants denouncing the RCMP’s recruitment presence on St. George Campus, and held speeches denouncing capitalism, imperialism and settler-colonialism, all of which are the foundation upon which the RCMP functions as the strong arm

RAPE CULTURE

The Rebellion of the Oppressed

The reporting of sexual assaults by CBC’s star host Jian Ghomeshi unleashed a tide in which thousands of victims of assault and harassment were engulfed. On social networks and elsewhere, many, anonymously or openly, condemned their attackers, sometimes going so far as to provide names. As stated by the authors Martine Delvaux and Pascale Navarro: “It has taken centuries, several waves of feminists… and the recent events for women to detonate the lock of silence.”

The ensuing wave proved irresistible; it even reached the corridors of the House of Commons, sweeping in two barely known Liberal MPs. It was therefore

“NATIONAL SECURITY”

A Calculated Delirium

The Parliament Hill shooting in Ottawa in late October still fascinates the mainstream press. In a pitiful attempt to draw an analogy between the shooting of a single soldier and the “9/11” attacks on the World Trade Centre, Canadian journalists have followed Harper in proclaiming the shooting “a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world.” In a farcical repetition of the 9/11 event, the shooting has been cast as justification for a renewed commitment to imperialism because, as this pathetic logic goes, attacks on Canadian soil must
