The Montreal Marxist Winter School has become the biggest Marxist meeting in the country, but this year's event was something special. There was record attendance at the school, with close to 230 people participating. People were present from Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia, Mexico, France, Britain and Switzerland. Two hundred years after Karl Marx’s birth, the 2018 Marxist Winter School has shown that Marxist ideas are advancing across the board.

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.

Support Fightback today. Help build the revolution!
