This year, communists and the exploited masses the world over are celebrating the centennial of the Bolshevik revolution, which became the first proletarian revolution in history to defeat the bourgeoisie throughout an entire country, and the first to allow for the establishment of a socialist State. This event represented a point of historical rupture: It changed the balance of power between ruling and downtrodden classes on a global scale, generated a remarkable upturn all through the international revolutionary movement and inspired, for decades to come, the exploited proletariat and oppressed peoples struggling for liberation in every corner of the globe.

This document is devoted to the episode of crisis that affected the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) towards the end of last winter. It is a follow-up on the first statement published on our website (pcr-rcp.ca), in which the Quebec District reinstated the four members expelled by the Party’s Central Committee and called for the defence of the integrity of the RCP and its program. We intend herewith to shed light on all of the disagreements between us and the opportunists that led to this expulsion, but most of all, to take all of the dispositions necessary for ensuring the continuity

This flyer was circulated by the Revolutionary Workers Movement comrades to Sears workers and customers:

59 closed stores, 2,900 layed off, that is how Sears Canada chose to pay their debts of the last few years. While about forty high level executives are given nearly 10 million dollars in ‘bonus’, the 2,900 workers will get absolutely no compensation. As always, we take the hit so the bosses can save their skin.

Sears say they had no choice to close down stores due to the competition of online sales. We say that the progress of technology should give us better lives,

INTERNATIONAL DECLARATION FOR MAY DAY 2017:

Red, Revolutionary, Internationalist May Day!

“The flag of the October Revolution is invincible!”
– Mao Zedong

This year marks the Centenary of the October Revolution. Imperialists, reactionaries, reformists, and all kinds of opportunists are making efforts to delete, obscure, denigrate and sully this event, as they did last year with the 50th anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. They do so because they know that the great message coming from these events for the proletarians and the masses is more and more present. To get rid of imperialism, capitalism, war, exploitation of the proletariat and oppression of peoples we must make the proletarian revolution!

(Montréal, March 11, 2017) It seems that a communiqué will soon be published to announce the so-called “expulsion” of four members of our Party in the Montréal area under the pretext of an incident that took place on March 4th at a book launch at the Maison Norman Bethune, where three hostile elements, who had separated themselves from the Party and had carried out for several months a fractional activity while spreading rumours and lies, were invited to leave the bookstore.

The Québec District of the Revolutionary Communist Party condemns and rejects with the utmost firmness this illegitimate decision, originating

(January 31st, 2017) Since the string of revolutionary street art began to appear around town on Monday of last week and the March Against School Closures on Tuesday January 24th, the police have intensified their attacks on the Sudbury chapter of the Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM-Sudbury).

A small group of RSM supporters were chased by unidentified men in the downtown core that Monday afternoon. The men pursued the supporters for several blocks, yelling that they believed our supporters were responsible for spray painting a building.

We saw a dramatically increased police presence at our demonstration against public school closures

As many comrades, supporters and organizers of the MER-RSM are aware, we unexpectedly had to push back our 6th Revolutionary Student Movement Conference. But we are back and will be hosting our 6th Congress on February 18th-19th 2017 in Ottawa!

With invitees from coast to coast, this is shaping up to be another historic leap forward in building the revolutionary movement in Canada! We will witness and shape the transformation of the political landscape of the country and forge ahead toward revolution!

Interested comrades are encouraged to register for participation either with their local MER-RSM Section or by contacting

Comrades, supporters, fellow travellers! The Red Flag editorial collective is looking for articles for a special issue on the rise of fascism in Canada. Although supporters and friends of the PCR-RCP have been talking about the rightward drift and resurgence of fascism for years—in various ways and in various articles—we feel that with the recent election of Trump, the most recognizable symptom of this trend, an issue of The Red Flag should be devoted to this phenomenon.

We are requesting that anyone interested in writing analysis, journalistic reports, reviews, interventions regarding this fascist resurgence send us their submissions as soon

The Revolutionary Student Movement is pleased to announce our Sixth Pan-Canadian Congress, to be held in Montreal on November 19 and 20, 2016!

We invite all interested people and organizations to attend, to help build the revolutionary movement among students!

Since our last Congress in Ottawa during the fall of 2015, the Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM) has continued to grow. Multiple new sections have opened across Canada: our expansion has been particularly notable in Western Canada and in the Maritimes. Our work as also developed: as part of our last Congress’ focus on consolidation and “digging-in”, nearly every section

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our comrade Nathalie Moreau. Brilliant and dedicated activist, Nathalie passed away on September 5 surrounded by her family, victim of an ovarian cancer that was diagnosed a little less than four years ago. Our solidarity first goes to her relatives, her partner, children, siblings and other family members, as well as her countless friends, work colleagues, to those valiant women with whom she shared a similar condition since 2012 and of course to her comrades, who all lose an irreplaceable companion, a friend and a combatant. Nathalie had
