On May Day 2019, International Workers’ Day, revolutionaries took action in the streets of downtown Montreal to commemorate the centenary of the Winnipeg General Strike.

From the very first moments of the rally at Phillips Square, Montreal police seized all the red flags that were lying on the ground, even before they were distributed to the demonstrators. In doing so, the police have resumed an anti-communist practice that was commonplace in Montreal until the 1950s. For the bourgeoisie and its repressive apparatus, the red flag is the symbol of revolt, revolution and the people’s struggle for power. They consider its

Statement of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and Organizations:

The imperialist system continues going through a deep crisis. Current attempts imperialist and reactionary to deal with and overcome it are unsuccessful and it is going to deepen and extend.

The crisis, emerged in the field of finance, has its cause in production and today results in a new recession. The global inter-imperialist dispute and contradictions become sharper. These new disputes start as trade war, and then are increasingly turning into political-military geo-strategic contradictions, resulting in and expanding in aggressive, occupied and proxy wars in countries oppressed by imperialism and also somewhat advancing the

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

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 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
