Waterloo holds discussion against Ford’s anti-protest law

SFS holds public discussion against Ford's anti-protest lawOn Oct. 19, Socialist Fightback Students (SFS) Waterloo hosted a public discussion on Premier Doug Ford’s anti-protest law. This event was part of a series of province-wide actions against Ford’s so-called “free speech” mandate for universities and colleges set to be implemented January 2019. Ford’s mandate is in reality an anti-protest law which aims to clamp down on students rightly protesting fascists and racists on campus. Ford’s doublespeak on “free speech” is an attack on our democratic right to protest, and is therefore an attack on free speech.

The forces of Marxism multiply on Canadian campuses!

fightbackryersonThis fall, the forces of Marxism have spread across Canadian campuses as never before. In the face of economic crisis, youth are questioning capitalism and are searching for answers that only revolutionary Marxism can provide. Since the start of September, Socialist Fightback Students (SFS) have collected well over a thousand emails, sold hundreds of papers, and started dozens of revolutionary reading groups across Canada, thus enrolling a new wave of youth in the fight against capitalism.

Province-wide actions against Ford’s anti-protest law

fightfordRallies and meetings are being held across Ontario in opposition to Doug Ford’s new anti-protest law. The so-called “free speech on campus” policy will effectively ban student protests against racist and fascist speakers on campus. Students who refuse may face disciplinary action including expulsion. Universities unwilling to participate will have their funding stripped. This is an attack on freedom of speech, and must be resisted by all means necessary.

SIGN THE PETITION: Stop Doug Ford’s Anti-Protest Law!

fightfordOn Aug. 30, Doug Ford announced he would be forcing universities to adopt an Orwellian "free speech" policy. This is an attack on freedom of speech and aims to crack down on student protests. Under this new policy, student activists will face discipline and possible expulsion for simply protesting racist speakers on campus. This includes our own Socialist Fightback activists.
