Following the election of Donald Trump and the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, racists and fascists have been emboldened and have organized protests to spew their poison. The response of the left has been to organize mass actions that overwhelm the racists and shut them down. Fightback and La Riposte Socialiste have been at the forefront of mobilizing against fascism across Canada and Quebec.
However, the only way to decisively defeat the far-right is by putting an end to the conditions of misery that breed racism, exploitation, and inequality. Fightback and La Riposte Socialiste are organizing workers and youth in the struggle for socialism that can end capitalist inequality, and we need your support!
In the past year, Fightback and La Riposte Socialiste have made several strides forward. We have purchased our own printer and have moved to printing both our English and French magazines and booklets in-house. We have hired our first francophone organizer in Montreal. We held our biggest Marxist Winter School in Montreal with over 200 in attendance. We launched Socialist Fightback Students and established chapters on over a dozen campuses across the country. Recently, we held Russian Revolution 100th Anniversary celebrations bringing out 250 attendees between Toronto and Montreal. While more young people and workers than ever are looking to us, we have also come to the attention of the far-right and we have been the target of sabotage and harassment. However, we will not be intimidated by such actions and call on all of our supporters to help us mobilize against this scourge.
