congress group photo clippedOne year after the passing of their leading comrade Camilo Cahis, Canadian supporters of the International Marxist Tendency gathered for their 16th annual congress. Facing such a blow, it would have been understandable for the group to stagnate or even decline. However, the exact opposite happened. In the face of adversity, the Marxists fighting the Canadian State did not just hold their ground but advanced impressively. The group grew to over 100 activists, increased their impact on a number of campuses, began to develop work in the unions, and have launched a campaign to hire Farshad Azadian as their 4th full-time organizer. Challenging times forced the comrades to rally together and build as a tribute to their fallen comrade.
