All Out for March 8 International Women’s Day

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) calls on Canadians to go all out to make March 8 International Women’s Day 2017 a success.

This year, International Women’s Day is taking place at a time of heightened consciousness of the need to renew the resistance. Millions have taken part in demonstrations to reject government of police powers represented by the new Trump administration as well as repudiate the misogyny, racism and aggression espoused by the U.S. and other big powers, some in the name of progressive values. Many are also becoming conscious of the need for political movements in defence of rights and against war. How to identify and overcome what is blocking the fight for women’s rights and contribute to the emancipation of all working people is on everyone’s minds. One conclusion increasingly drawn is that the existing institutions the people are saddled with are anachronistic. Continue reading

Sighting. Mass resistance sets tone for Trump presidency

Actions in Washington and around the world

Women’s March on Washington, January 21, 2017

Mass actions in the lead up to Inauguration Day, on January 20 in Washington, DC and after, including unprecedented demonstrations for the Women’s March on January 21 made amply clear the widespread sentiment in the U.S. to reject the Trump presidency, oppose war and attacks on rights and for empowerment. Actions took place in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and cities worldwide. The spirit of resistance eclipsed attempts by one or another of the ruling factions of the financial oligarchy to use it for self-serving ends. The actions of people in their millions were a rejection of an outmoded system of politics that deprives them of a say and that has set the country on a dangerous course at home and abroad.

As CPC(M-L) pointed out on November 9, 2016, the election of Trump was an end to business as usual. Continue reading

Inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States

Step Up the Work in Defence of the Rights of All, for Democratic Renewal, an Anti-War Government and Independent Canada!

– Statement of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), January 20, 2017 –

Today, Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The overriding necessity for the Canadian working people is to concentrate on their own work in defence of their rights. The antidote to the non-stop promotion of the ideological beliefs of both Trump and the official anti-Trump forces is the work to build the independent institutions and voice of the Canadian working class and its allies, and broaden the struggle in defence of rights, for democratic renewal, an anti-war government and an independent Canada.

(January 15) – Today is the 225th anniversary of the beginning of one of the most significant and dramatic chapters in the historic efforts of Africans in the Americas to reconnect with – indeed, return to – Africa. It was – and is also – a profound example of the active and conscious historical agency of the oppressed and exploited in their struggle to assert their democratic rights and achieve self-determination.
