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


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.

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

From the Revolutionary Student Movement in Toronto:

Comrades from the Revolutionary Student Movement, the Proletarian Feminist Front, and the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee confronted reactionary Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs) as they gathered to spread their message of misogyny this past Tuesday at the University of Toronto.

MRAs, organized under the dubiously-named “Canadian Association For Equality” were completely unprepared for the opposition they must inevitably face. After facing the organized resistance of the comrades, who disrupted the meeting by shouting slogans, heckling, and singing “The Internationale”, the MRAs disbanded their meeting and attempted to relocate and reconvene. The comrades pursued them,

University of Ottawa Revolutionary Student Movement in association with OPIRG denounces the unceasing attack on the people of Gaza perpetrated by the State of Israel that to this hour has resulted in more than a thousand Palestinians killed, thousands wounded, overwhelming majority of them civilians–children, women, the elderly and men not affiliated with any armed group.

As we write this statement, we want to reach out to the Palestinian people to express our solidarity with their struggle for freedom in their own homeland, liberation from colonial oppression and an end to ethnic cleansing. We express our condolences and deep sorrow

This statement from the PCR-RCP Canada was circulated at a rally against Bill C-24 (the so-called “Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act”) on Saturday, July 5th in Surrey, BC. The rally was organized by Radical Desi and by People’s Voice—the newspaper of the revisionist Communist Party of Canada—and supported by No One is Illegal-Vancouver, among others.

One hundred years ago, the Komagata Maru steamship arrived in Vancouver, with 376 passengers who were fleeing India. There were already over 2,000 Indians living in Canada, primarily Punjabis, who faced blatant discrimination. Due to racist government policies to keep

The imposed neoliberal austerity measures, a by-product of the capitalist system courtesy of the Troika—the International Monetary Fund (IMF), European Union (EU) and the European Central Bank (ECB)—especially the German bourgeoisie and its barbaric capitalists under chancellor Angela Merkel, are the ideological means by which social welfare benefits and public assets—the necessities of life—are wholly and forcibly eroded, privatized (in the case of people’s commons, water, etc.), seized, or sold off. The fallout of these devastating measures has affected the overwhelming majority of impoverished Greece like a bubonic plague, the lives of the Greek people having become the sacrificial lambs
