An enthusiastic crowd of over 60 people recently gathered at the University of Toronto for a discussion on the threat of imperialist attacks in Syria. The event was a culmination of frosh activity at both Ryerson University and UofT where many students expressed an interest of finding out the reasons for imperialism's threats against the Syrian population, as well as the roots of the current situation in the county.

On Sunday, 30th June, approximately 400 demonstrators came together at Queen’s Park in Toronto to rally in solidarity with mass protests in Egypt against President Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hostility towards Morsi was apparent at the rally, as chants and signs depicted the deep resentment that Egyptians have for the current government.

More than 90 people packed a room at the University of Toronto on Fri.

On Sunday, June 9th, about 60 people — mostly Turkish youth — showed up to the Jeanne-Mance Park in Montreal to show support to the movement in Turkey. This is the second time the Turkish people in Montreal gathered in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in Turkey.  As these lines are being written, the Erdogan regime is stepping up its repression, mobilizing thousands of police forces to crush the centre of the movement — Taksim Square.

On Wednesday, 5th June, supporters of La Riposte and Fightback magazines in Montreal organized a discussion circle to discuss the movement that has recently rocked Turkey. More than half a dozen Turkish youth showed up to the discussion circle. About 20 people came out, including more than half a dozen Turkish youth. The Turkish movement has not only inspired the millions of youth in Turkey, but also across the world, and this was made clear with the attendance of youth from Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Armenia, and of course, Canada, present at the discussion circle.
