Lancement de La Riposte: le Journal de la Tendance Marxiste Internationale au Québec

Le 5 juin 2009, les marxistes québécois ont lancé une nouvelle publication, La Riposte. Le lancement du journal a eu lieu à l'UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal), là ou il y a quelques mois à peine, les professeurs étaient en grève. Près de 30 000 étudiants de l’UQAM avaient alors enclenché une grève en solidarité avec leurs professeurs. Une quarantaine de personnes ont assisté à l'événement de lancement du journal. Les panélistes comprenaient Isa Al-Jaza’iri du comité éditorial de La Riposte, Camilo Cahis du comité éditorial de Fightback, le journal des marxistes canadiens, et finalement Jorge Martin du Secrétariat international de la TMI.  (English version follows)

Fightback becomes a colour monthly!

Capitalism is in crisis as never before; more than ever, workers and youth need a Marxist analysis to make sense of it all. For the last 10 years Fightback has been on the front line, giving activists the answers they need. Political events are changing rapidly and to make sure we meet the need, we have decided to make Fightback a monthly paper. In addition, we are revolutionizing our layout and design. The most noticeable addition is the colour front cover. Through this we hope to professionalize our message so we can reach more people and become a more prominent voice of the workers and oppressed.
