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

This flyer was circulated by the Revolutionary Workers Movement comrades to Sears workers and customers:

59 closed stores, 2,900 layed off, that is how Sears Canada chose to pay their debts of the last few years. While about forty high level executives are given nearly 10 million dollars in ‘bonus’, the 2,900 workers will get absolutely no compensation. As always, we take the hit so the bosses can save their skin.

Sears say they had no choice to close down stores due to the competition of online sales. We say that the progress of technology should give us better lives,

INTERNATIONAL DECLARATION FOR MAY DAY 2017:

Red, Revolutionary, Internationalist May Day!

“The flag of the October Revolution is invincible!”
– Mao Zedong

This year marks the Centenary of the October Revolution. Imperialists, reactionaries, reformists, and all kinds of opportunists are making efforts to delete, obscure, denigrate and sully this event, as they did last year with the 50th anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. They do so because they know that the great message coming from these events for the proletarians and the masses is more and more present. To get rid of imperialism, capitalism, war, exploitation of the proletariat and oppression of peoples we must make the proletarian revolution!

(Montréal, March 11, 2017) It seems that a communiqué will soon be published to announce the so-called “expulsion” of four members of our Party in the Montréal area under the pretext of an incident that took place on March 4th at a book launch at the Maison Norman Bethune, where three hostile elements, who had separated themselves from the Party and had carried out for several months a fractional activity while spreading rumours and lies, were invited to leave the bookstore.

The Québec District of the Revolutionary Communist Party condemns and rejects with the utmost firmness this illegitimate decision, originating

Our epoch is confronted with a rapidly expanding scourge: Islamophobia. Today, it is the dominant form of racism in our society. Muslims are the most stigmatized, the most subjected to discrimination and aggression. As such, Islamophobia is detestable as are all forms of racism and xenophobia. But the scope of Islamophobia is further aggravated by the fact that it concentrates the most explosive contradictions of our time. In this, it does not merely isolate and overwhelm a racialized sector of the people; it is at the heart of the class struggle on a global scale. Islamophobia has direct implications for

This article from the Montréal Revolutionary Workers’ Movement (MRO) was written a few days after the announcement of the decision of a well-known trade unionist from the construction sector, Bernard Gauthier (known as “Rambo” Gauthier), to run for the next provincial election. The article is an appropriate response to the lies of this impostor. A misogynist and a racist who assumes his positions, Gauthier has made himself known for his controversial defense of members of the FTQ-construction in the Côte-Nord region. People like him are using the genuine anti-system sentiments of the working masses to channel them into a dead

Foreword:

This year marks two anniversaries: the 150 year an-niversary of the founding of Canada and the 100 year anniversary of the October Revolution. Both are significant for the re-initiation of Arsenal––the theoretical journal of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Canada [PCR-RCP]––though for drastically different reasons.

The first anniversary, which the Canadian state will be

(January 31st, 2017) Since the string of revolutionary street art began to appear around town on Monday of last week and the March Against School Closures on Tuesday January 24th, the police have intensified their attacks on the Sudbury chapter of the Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM-Sudbury).

A small group of RSM supporters were chased by unidentified men in the downtown core that Monday afternoon. The men pursued the supporters for several blocks, yelling that they believed our supporters were responsible for spray painting a building.

We saw a dramatically increased police presence at our demonstration against public school closures

As many comrades, supporters and organizers of the MER-RSM are aware, we unexpectedly had to push back our 6th Revolutionary Student Movement Conference. But we are back and will be hosting our 6th Congress on February 18th-19th 2017 in Ottawa!

With invitees from coast to coast, this is shaping up to be another historic leap forward in building the revolutionary movement in Canada! We will witness and shape the transformation of the political landscape of the country and forge ahead toward revolution!

Interested comrades are encouraged to register for participation either with their local MER-RSM Section or by contacting
