Fightback/La Riposte Socialiste Subscription Drive: Help build the forces of Marxism to fight the far-right!

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.

After Charlottesville, Torontonians shut down alt-right event

The movement against the alt-right won another victory on Tuesday, August 23 in Toronto. This was the date of a supposed “free speech” event organized by Islamophobic, transphobic, and racist commentators associated with Rebel Media, Canada’s equivalent of Breitbart. Coming just over a week after the killing of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, the community reaction was predictably explosive. The right wingers also made the mistake of holding their hate-filled event at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto, which has a successful Socialist Fightback Students club. Under pressure from the community, the university administration shut down the alt-right. But the community still organized a successful celebration of this victory.
