The next stage for the ongoing revolution in Nepal remains in question as of the writing of this article, as the constitutional deadline of May 28, 2011 draws near.

The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) grew out of a decade-long people’s war between peasants and feudal landlords, the royal army, the police and the monarchist regime. It has the support of 80% of Nepali people, including peasant farmers, workers, students, women and other marginalized groups.

After negotiating a ceasefire, the Maoists entered parliament and have proposed a new constitution that enshrines social justice and emphasizes Nepalese economic and political

From June till September, the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee of Toronto will be offering free workshops to the public in different proletarian neighborhoods to spread the message and vision of revolutionary communism. Motivated by the need to develop a communist politics that can speak to the contradictions in this era of imperialism, this workshop series is designed to address pressing and unavoidable questions cropping up in the contemporary terrain of struggle.

We recognize that a revolutionary communism can only animate the working classes when it speaks to the reality of the everyday toil of working life under the system of

On May 9, Québec Premier Jean Charest unveiled for a second time his famous “Plan Nord” that aims to occupy, develop and exploit this vast territory north of the 49th parallel. The area is 1.2 million square kilometers and makes up over 70% of Québec’s land mass.

Coordinated by a new state corporation, the Charest plan anticipates public and private investments of about $80 billion over a period of 25 years. This includes some 11 mining projects that are already underway, like the one announced a few days ago by ArcelorMittal, which plans to significantly increase its iron extraction in

2 May 2011. A World to Win News Service. An appeals court in the U.S. has reaffirmed its earlier ruling that the death sentence against Mumia Abu-Jamal is unconstitutional.

Mumia, a former Black Panther Party member, has been held in solitary confinement on death row for almost three decades since he was convicted of the 1981 killing of a policeman in the city of Philadelphia. The judge at that trial was overheard to say that he was going to help the police “fry the ni*ger.” Mumia appealed his conviction to the US Supreme Court, which refused to hear his case,

Over the past year, a strong opposition to the exploration and exploitation of shale gas has been mounted in Québec, particularly where the industry began its drilling activities. The gas industry acted as savagely as the requirements of capitalist development allowed them to do, ignoring the concerns of affected populations.

Aided by a practically non-existent legislative and regulatory framework, the industry embarked on a mad race to identify the most easily exploitable basements without bothering to obtain the consent of the communities; they even went so far as to begin drilling without notifying the neighbourhood in advance. There was no

More than a month has passed since the beginning of NATO’s military offensive in Libya, “intervening” in what started as protests in several Libyan cities and quickly became a full-fledged and drawn-out civil war. The NATO bloc has stated repeatedly that it is unwilling to accept any outcome other than a complete military victory over the Libyan government and “regime change” in favour of its preferred rebel elements.

Following a familiar pattern, warmongers in the government and media crafted a narrative tailored to Canada’s imperialist “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine, claiming, without basis, that without intervening on one side of the

This year again, there were demonstrations and other kind of gatherings in different parts of the country to celebrate May Day, the International Workers Day. Here is a report we collected from our supporters:

In Toronto, the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee joined the revolutionary May Day March put on by the May 1st Movement (M1M) coalition. A group of about 300 marched through proletarian neighborhoods in Toronto. Some people came out of their houses to wave at the marchers and drum on their recycling bins in solidarity.

The M1M coalition protest met later in the day at a park

Activists from the Revolutionary Communist Party in Montréal are about to launch a new initiative called the Revolutionary Workers Movement. The main objective of the Movement is to promote a real fighting plan in order to strengthen the workers struggle in the area.

Despite the fact the proletariat is numerous and strong, it remains largely dependent on the requirements of the capitalists. The crisis that the capitalist system has gone through in the recent years has accentuated the tendency to increase workers’ exploitation. Declining wages, increased workload, higher prices for basic goods and services: such is the burden we

On May 1 2011, as the working classes and peasants around the world marched and demanded the foundation of a new society based on egalitarian principles and peace; the old society, best represented by the American government that makes a profit through war and exploitation, used its latest military technology to kill Osama bin Laden.

We do not shed a tear for his death. The terror and violence he wrought on innocent victims on September 11 2001 cannot be excused. However, we refuse to join the nationalist chorus and overlook the terrorizing wars and devastating economic restructuring that western governments

THE FIGHT AGAINST CAPITALISM WON’T HAPPEN IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS:

Our Struggle Will End This Unjust System!

The federal election is finally over, and the Canadian bourgeoisie had the result they wanted: a majority government, which will help stabilize its power over the next four years. The collapse of the Liberal Party and the Bloc Québécois and the emergence of the New Democratic Party as the Official Opposition is a sign of both a realignment of power relations within the ruling class and of the fact that the parties traditionally used by the bourgeoisie to win the support of the masses no longer have enough political capacity.

For five weeks, the electoral circus was paraded throughout the
