14th Canadian Marxist Conference — Preparing for mass movements in an era of world revolution

Revolutionaries from across Canada gathered in Toronto on the weekend of May 17-18 to discuss the struggle for socialism against the Canadian state. This was the 14th annual National Conference of supporters of La Riposte and Fightback, bringing together almost 60 revolutionaries from the West Coast to Quebec.

Fightback Subscription Drive: Help build revolutionary media in Canada!

fightback-literature-tableWe are launching the Fightback subscription drive over the next month. This is an initiative to build up the strength of revolutionary media that will be carried out in cities and campuses across Canada. In this time of economic crisis, class struggle, austerity cuts, and revolutions around the world the urgent need for revolutionary media has never been greater. We need to build an alternative to the corporate press and to promote working class and socialist analysis on current events.

Great enthusiasm marks 2014 Marxist Winter School

Organized by supporters of Fightback (Canada), La Riposte (Quebec), and the Workers’ International League (USA), this year’s school was certainly a big success. Activists traveled from Ottawa, Toronto, New York, and Boston to join comrades in Montreal for enthusiastic discussions throughout the entire weekend. Continuing the tradition from last year, the discussions were held in both French and English, facilitated through consecutive translation which highlighted the unity of English and French-speaking revolutionaries.

Marxist Winter School 2014 — Montreal

Last year, we saw a continuation of the revolutionary process of social upheaval all around the world. From Turkey to Brazil, from Egypt to Greece, people take to the streets searching for a way out as capitalism offers no future. As workers and youth search for answers to the problems they are now confronted with, we announce the fourth annual Northeast Marxist Winter School, which will be held in Montreal, Quebec on the weekend of February 15-16. The aim of this school is to arm activists with Marxist ideas for the struggles to come.
