Socialist Fightback Students

Amazing response to Socialist Fightback Students for new school year

The deepening crisis of capitalism is pushing more and more people to revolutionary conclusions, and no one is more critical of the status quo than the youth. Hundreds of students who are frustrated with economic insecurity and debt, oppression and discrimination, state violence, war, and environmental destruction signed up to get involved in Socialist Fightback Students (SFS) chapters on campuses across the country and participated in our events during the first month of the fall school term.

Socialist Fightback Back-to-School Report: Week One

With the start of the new school term, local chapters of the Socialist Fightback Students (SFS) have been actively reaching out on the campuses to sign-up new members, distribute Marxist literature and hold our first events. Hundreds of students have signed-up and the end-of-week pub nights held in Toronto and Montreal were big successes. Additionally, the beginning of the week was marked by sizeable Labour Day parades in which impressive interventions were organized by Fightback.

Montreal: Over 40 people discuss Charlottesville and the fight against Fascism

In the wake of the far-right violence in Charlottesville, which resulted in the tragic murder of young activist Heather Heyer, Socialist Fightback organized a public discussion in Montreal titled “After Charlottesville: What is Fascism and How to Fight it." This was attended by over 40 people, demonstrating that the radicalization of large layers of the population due to these events, with many becoming sympathetic to the cause of anti-fascism and revolutionary politics, has not been isolated to the United States.
