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.

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

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 –

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

Their war, our dead here as elsewhere! Their National unity, our popular unity!

After the attacks in Beirut and against the Kurds in Turkey, now over 100 dead in Paris in the worst death toll in the capital since the 17 October 1961 when the French police massacred Algerians during a demonstration for independence. The ISIL terrorists struck out at random at a football match, on café terraces, during a concert, etc. These appalling crimes breed alarm, fear and panic. We are in a state of shock as some of us mourn colleagues and friends, wounded or dead. The whole population of Paris and its surrounding area were the target. These were Fascist

Imperialism, and France with a role in the front row, has sown the wind in the world and now reaps the whirlwind, and the war that has sown terror and now the war comes back home.

The imperialists have created and supported the ISIS against the people and against those who interposed an obstacle to their interests, profits, oil, geopolitical control of strategic areas of the world and now the ISIS created barbarians create suicide bombings in Paris.

Imperialism and now the French answer to the terrorist attacks in the worst possible way, with a state of emergency, the political-military-police

In this election, the people only have a choice between which politician will oppress them, cut their benefits, and represent the exploitative capitalist class. Even the ones who present themselves as champions of the people are, in fact, pursuing plans that will harm the working class, especially its poorest and most oppressed sections.

It should be the goal of all progressive and revolutionary people to expose the lies of this rotten system with words as well as actions, and so we are happy to announce that Hamilton Coalition Against Poverty has endorsed the campaign to Boycott the 2015 Federal Election!

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
