• People want revolution • Proletarians want the Party of the Revolution • Communists want internationalism and a new international organization

This year’s May Day comes at a time of unprecedented protests and uprisings all around the world. In the Arab world and Persian Gulf, the youth, the proletarians and the broad masses took to the streets and toppled or tried to topple, one after the other, the dictatorial regimes subservient to imperialism.

In the heart of the imperialist countries, working class struggles, general strikes, rebellions of students and youth are opposing the

Their May Day and Ours

The origins of May Day go back to the struggle for the eight-hour day. May 1st, also known as International Workers Day, was chosen to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket Affair, where striking workers were shot down by the Chicago Police. As workers rally to the streets on this May Day in 2011 to celebrate hard fought historical struggles against the capitalist system of exploitation and oppression, the proletarian classes also reaffirm their commitment to revolutionary struggle for Communism.

In Canada as in the U.S., the bourgeoisie have never recognized May Day as a public holiday. Instead, in the 1890s, they

As the federal election campaign comes to a close, we write knowing more or less the results already. Despite the upturn reported by the corporate media for the New Democratic Party (NDP), it is almost certain that the Conservative Party will form the next government. Anyway, whatever the final outcome, we already know it won’t bring anything good for us workers. The only thing we don’t know is whether the dramatic decline in the participation rate will deepen, or if the propaganda campaign waged by the bourgeois parties and the media has managed to contain it for now.

As usual,

After three years of struggle, full and part-time employees of Aramark at Carleton University in Ottawa have won their union after the employer formally agreed to recognize a majority of workers signing union cards

Precarious labour, layoffs, low pay, little regard for workers’ safety, job insecurity, and frequent bureaucratic and managerial denial of rights and benefits characterized the experience of Aramark workers at Carleton, not to mention the experience at most “modern” jobs in Canada today.

Food service at Carleton, which divides hundreds of workers into a dozen or so disconnected shops or outlets, exemplifies many of the problems facing

It is with great pride and a deep sense of responsibility in front of the Canadian proletariat and the international communist movement that we announce the rallying of the Social Revolution Party (SRP) to the Parti communiste révolutionnaire – Revolutionary Communist Party (Canada).

The Social Revolution Party is an Ottawa-based communist group founded in 2009. Created two years earlier, the Revolutionary Communist Party is a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist party that fights for a revolutionary change in Canada, for workers power and socialism, as part of the world revolution.

Following the historic anti-capitalist mobilization against the G20 Summit in June 2010 in

Canada has sent another 200 military personnel to fight in NATO’s regime change operation in Libya, bringing the total to 770 members of the Canadian Forces embroiled in the war. Operation MOBILE is Canada’s first air-only war fought since 1999, when NATO precipitated the destruction and dismemberment of Yugoslavia through massive bombardment.

A Canadian, Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, is the Commander of NATO’s Libyan war, supported by the four main political parties in Canada, the Bloc Québécois, the Liberal, Conservative, and New Democratic Parties. The ongoing Federal Election campaigns have overshadowed Canada’s major involvement in the intervention. Ottawa’s foreign policy

Report From Toronto

On March 2, we held a panel discussion on the ongoing revolution in Nepal, where Maoist forces launched a 10-year People’s War to reclaim land for the people and fight exploitation by the police, military and ruling elites. The panel included two PhD students and one journalist who had recently traveled to Nepal and interviewed Maoist party members, students and workers about the changes they have seen and the future they continue to fight for. The event was endorsed by PRAC Toronto, Canada South Asia Solidarity Association and ILPS Canada.

On March 19, there was a meeting for those interested

The New Democratic Party (NDP) promotes itself as the option for the left in Canada. But just like the Conservatives and Liberals, the NDP is steeped in imperialism, in which Canadian business and political elites exploit and impoverish already poor countries for the benefit of Canadian companies.

One of the most visible ways the NDP is pro-imperialist is its support for wars in the Middle East. Certainly no self-proclaimed leftwing parliamentary party is going to go so far as to advocate national wars, but the NDP goes to war none the less. When it does war —the NDP initially supported

May 1st, International Workers’ Day, commemorates the 1886 Haymarket Square massacre in Chicago, when police attacked the strikers who were fighting for the eight-hour day. Now, 125 years later, May 1st is a time for celebrating our victories and demonstrating our willingness to fight with our brothers and sisters around the world against a system that brings no more than misery, oppression and exploitation.

This year, May 1st will take place in a context where capitalism has gone through one of its worst crises, which has claimed thousands of victims in Canada and millions worldwide. The bourgeoisie and their politicians
