Fightback Organizes Against Trump!

In the weeks since Donald Trump was elected president of the United States there has been a massive response from workers and youth who are disgusted by his bigoted politics. Canada is not immune to the impact of the these events, and there has been a wave of politicization as Canadians look for ways to resist the racism, misogyny, xenophobia and homophobia that Trump represents. Fightback has been providing the answer to this question, organizing public events, discussions and interventions, gaining an audience among the many who are realizing that Trump and his kind cannot be defeated by the same establishment politics that spawned him, and that the only way forward is to fight for socialism.

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.
