Here is a communique from the Revolutionary Student Movement (MER-RSM) relayed in full solidarity by the PCR-RCP Canada:

The RSM Montreal was present at the “Fucking Big Night Demo” on December 18th. This anticapitalist demonstration was called by the Cégep du Vieux-Montréal Student Association for Free Tuition, a student group at Old Montreal Cégep, in a context of ruthless cuts to public services by our parliamentary bourgeoisie. The dogs of capital had also severly repressed two night demonstrations in the preceding weeks, sending one comrade demonstrator to the hospital by hitting her with their batons.

Pumped up, Montreal’s police was

15 YEARS OF WAR IN AFGHANISTAN

A New Campaign is Launched Against the Occupation

A new initiative has recently been launched for forming a united front against the imperialist war in Afghanistan. As the fifteenth anniversary of the War on Terror nears, the organizers recall that the occupation of Afghanistan is still going on; they call for revitalizing the movement to oppose that war and reigniting the strength it possessed when Afghanistan was first invaded.

Other groups and individuals of the anti-capitalist left are invited to unite in a coalition to build an anti-imperialist protest movement around the ongoing occupation of Afghanistan, planning for a massive demonstration on the 15 year anniversary of its

Here is the statement announcing the launch of the Maoist Communist Party in France after a unification process that involved activists from various collectives and organizations. The PCR-RCP Canada congratulates these comrades for what is certainly an important development for the Maoist movement in that country. We especially underline the commitment of these comrades to defend, develop and moreover apply Marxism-Leninism-Maoism for waging the revolutionary struggle.

Revolutionary Struggles in Turkey and Kurdistan

The escalating tensions in Turkey between the government and progressive movements have made it into one of the hotspots of revolutionary struggle in the world. But while progressive organizations and civilian populations alike face intensified and cruel repression, especially in Kurdistan, information and in-depth analysis about the situation in Turkey has been hard to come by. The Turkish state is a key ally of Canada and NATO, and as such faces little scrutiny for its actions. Come learn more about the past and present of revolutionary movements in Turkey and Kurdistan!

Refreshments will be served.

The fifth congress of the Mouvement Étudiant Révolutionnaire – Revolutionary Student Movement (MER-RSM) was a huge success. This was the first congress in which we had consolidated sections across the country (rather than just contacts or activity in several regions); we were joined by delegates from Vancouver, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, all over Ontario and Québec, and PEI (in total 16 sections sent delegates). The breadth of experience represented by the delegates was exciting and will hopefully breathe new life into our work in the coming year. We had comrades who had been involved in and/or played leading roles in the ‪#‎Iamastudent‬

The People’s Dinner: Anti-Capitalist Community Meal

WHEN: Thursday, Dec 17, 5:30-8pm
WHERE: Meeting Room 1 (downstairs), MacKenzie Public Library, 74 MacKenzie St., Sudbury

RSM-Sudbury and RCP(OC)-Sudbury are teaming up with other members of the community to put on an end-of-the-year social event with an anti-capitalist theme. We’re hosting a free community meal and it is open to everyone!

WHY AN ‘ANTI-CAPITALIST’ MEAL?
Capitalism is a system where decisions are made based on what makes the most money, and not what best meets the majority of people’s needs. The result is that the real material needs of the people are ignored and unmet. Even in Canada, capitalism

Statement of RSM-Sudbury on the Transgender Day of Remembrance

No Revolution without Trans Liberation

From the Revolutionary Student Movement website:

Below is a statement of solidarity with trans people and the trans liberation struggle, distributed by RSM-Sudbury on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, Nov 20, at a vigil held at Tom Davies Square. The Transgender Day of Remembrance was started by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence that year and has become an annual event marked around the world.

On the Transgender Day of Remembrance, the Revolutionary Student Movement –

On Sunday, December 13, 2015 the militant, zionist Jewish Defense League (JDL) will be hosting author and anti-Muslim activist Robert Spencer at the Toronto Zionist Centre (788 Marlee Avenue). The event is billed as “Chanukah with David Spencer: The Threat of the Syrian ‘Refugees’ Trojan Horse” with an event poster which promotes a spurious link between Syrian refugees fleeing imperialist violence in their homelands, the fascist Islamic State in Syria (ISIS), and the recent violence in Paris, France.

Spencer is the director of jihadwatch.com (funded by the David Horowitz Freedom Center) as well as the co-founder of various organizations American

This past Saturday night Masjid Al-Salaam (the sole Mosque in Peterborough and religious and cultural home to the Kawartha Muslim Religious Association) was the location of an arson attack. The community reached out in efforts to raise funds to fix the Mosque. However recent actions have shown that Racists, Fascists and Islamophobes are undeterred. In light of the continued reactionary behavior on the part of white supremacist scum, the Revolutionary Student Movement-Peterborough and the Revolutionary Communist Party (Organizing Committee)-Peterborough call on all anti-racists and anti-fascists to join us on the streets and show a united front in solidarity with all

RSM Peterborough stands in solidarity with the members of Masjid Al-Salaam, Muslims and people of colour throughout Peterborough and the Kawarthas in the face of an attack on the community’s Mosque this past Saturday Night. An arson attack just hours after the community was celebrating in the space is a clear message of racism and islamophobia. Such attacks by reactionary elements in our community cannot be tolerated. Just as RSM and PRAC Comrades have taken an active role in confronting the PEGIDA fascists in Montreal and Toronto, the RSM calls on all revolutionary and progressive forces in Peterborough to condemn
