This year’s school, held at Concordia University, broke the record for the highest attendance in the event’s history, and saw revolutionary activists visiting from Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Boston, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and California. Organizers from Fightback (Canada), La Riposte (Quebec), and the Workers’ International League (USA) were elated to have held yet another successful event, proven by the sense of enthusiasm which permeated the room.

 

THANKS! Fightback gets its first office

Over the winter, Fightback has been organizing a solidarity campaign to acquire our first office. We are very proud to announce that, due to the amazing outpouring of support we received, we were able to move into an excellent location on 1st January. We want to thank all our readers and supporters, everybody who took out a solidarity subscription, or gave a donation in cash or in kind, for making this possible. 

 

Join us at the fifth annual Northeast Marxist Winter School!

From Ferguson to Mexico to Quebec, the world situation has once again been plagued by instability and social upheavals. Mass movements have arisen as youth and workers look for a way out of the dead end offered to us by capitalism. It is with this in mind that we announce the fifth annual Northeast Marxist Winter School in Montreal, which arms activists with Marxist ideas for the struggles to come.
