In defense of Marxism

Montreal Marxist Winter School 2022

Feb 19–20

Capitalism is broken. Fight for revolution!

Capitalism is broken. The pandemic has exposed the system which puts profits before needs. At the same time, the ideas of Marxism are under attack. This is no mere coincidence. We are moving into a period of revolutionary upheaval and Marxist ideas represent the best tool to help us fight against capitalism.

It is in this context that we are happy to announce the 12th edition of the Montreal Marxist Winter School under the theme: In Defence of Marxism. There is an urgent need to defend Marxist ideas in the movement in order to fight for a socialist solution to the problems facing the world. We need revolutionary ideas that will enable us to overthrow this rotten system.

As a sign of the growing popularity of revolutionary ideas, the Marxist school has been growing constantly over the years. Last year, our online edition reached fantastic proportions with over 1160 registrants. This year, we are returning to an in-person format, and aim to have upwards of 500 people register and participate in this event! Help us make this a truly historical Marxist gathering!

Join us for the largest Marxist event in Quebec and Canada. There has never been a better time to fight for the revolutionary ideas of Marxism!

Discussion topics

All discussions will be presented in French and English with consecutive translation.
