DefendreDroits

The ruling class has managed to make immigration the issue in this election. It is even saying that the Coalition Avenir Québec is posed to win the election on the basis of this platform. Continue reading

The climate of terror

– Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ) –

Since 2001, terrorism is not only a tragedy for the peoples but also a problem to be solved. Since 2001, the peoples of the world have had no respite, no rest. War and terrorism are multiplied to create a climate of terror in the country and on the world scene. Civilized norms between nations are thrown in the mud in favour of brute force. Anarchy is raised to authority in international relations.

It is the peoples of the world who are the victims of our governments, who lead our soldiers into dirty, unjust wars or in plots for regime change and who support U.S. imperialist domination. The same peoples of the world helplessly watch the destruction of forums like the United Nations by the perpetrators of war and chaos. Continue reading

It is now up to Quebec workers, youth, students and seniors to show what they are made of

THE Liberal Party of Quebec (PLQ) will form a majority government as a result of the Quebec general election which took place April 7. It won the election with 70 seats and 41.50 per cent of the votes cast, while the Parti Québécois (PQ) paid for its arrogance and foolishness in calling this election by receiving 30 seats and 25.38 per cent of the vote. The Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) won 22 seats and 23. 06 per cent of the votes cast and Québec solidaire won three seats and 7.64 per cent of the votes cast.

The voter turnout was high, 71.43 per cent of 6,012,440 registered electors. There were 4,232,145 valid ballots cast and 62,864 rejected ballots.

It is now up to Quebec workers, youth, students and seniors to show what they are made of

“In the opinion of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec, the election that ended yesterday, April 7, and the one-month campaign shows the crucial need for the working class to act as an organized political force on the basis of its own independent politics. It is the disorganization of the working class as a political force and the disinformation that resulted in a majority Liberal government,” said Pierre Chénier, Leader of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), when the results of the election were announced.

Quebec: Youth participation, and the right to education

To inform readers that there is a real alternative in the Quebec election, we are providing information on the stand and views of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais.

According to a survey conducted from February 28 to March 3 by Leger Marketing on behalf of TVA Nouvelles, 30 per cent of the youth vote (18 to 24 years) is leaning toward the Liberal Party of Quebec (PLQ), 29 per cent toward the Parti Québécois (PQ), 18 per cent toward Québec solidaire (QS) and 15 per cent toward the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ).

The polls predict a drop in youth participation in this election compared to 2012, when the student movement for the right to education was in full swing. (They forget to mention that it was the youth who forced an election which led to the defeat of the Liberals and Jean Charest.) Continue reading

Quebec Liberal Party remains an obstacle to the expression of the popular will

To inform readers that there is a real alternative in the Quebec election, we are providing information on the stand and views of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais.

Listening to Quebec Liberal Party Leader Philippe Couillard, it would seem that in the best of worlds, if any notion of a referendum on the future of Quebec could be brushed aside, all would be well. This view that we must abandon the constitutional question and move on to “real issues” — the economy — dates from the time of Jean Chrétien, in the post-referendum period. After having interfered in the decisions of the Quebec people and having mired himself in the sponsorship scandal, Chrétien wanted to divert attention from his own illegal activities by continuing to attack the right of Quebeckers to affirm their nationhood.

Quebec sovereignty and the ‘Anglo’ vote

To inform readers that there is a real alternative in the Quebec election, we are providing information on the stand and views of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais.

Why is it a given that English-speaking Quebeckers will never support Quebec sovereignty? What sovereignty are we referring to? Our sovereignty is not based on linguistic lines. The Quebec nation was first comprised of the First Nations, the Métis, settlers hailing from France, Ireland, Scotland and England, followed by Americans who left during the war of independence in the United States, and more recently immigrants from all over the world, who have made Quebec their home and contribute to its enrichment both culturally and economically. In fact, many who refer to themselves as “Anglophones” are our national minorities, who settled in Quebec particularly during the 20th century and who continue to use and promote their own mother tongues.

Quebec: Is an electoral coup in the works?

To inform readers that there is a real alternative in the Quebec election, we are providing information on the stand and views of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais.

A Léger-Journal de Montréal survey published March 24 said the Philippe Couillard Liberals are in position to form a majority government. The main Parti Québécois (PQ) spokesmen immediately rang the alarm to warn sovereignists intending to vote for Québec solidaire or Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) to beware the consequence – this will bring the Liberals to power.

Are we witnessing an attempted electoral coup? Pollsters regularly intervene in the political debate in Quebec to disinform public opinion in one direction or the other. Léger-Journal de Montréal, which belongs to the Peladeau family, as well as CROP and other pollsters are masters at disinforming the public. They ensure that there is no coherent and unifying response that serves the interests of the people. One has only to recall the atmosphere created around “reasonable accommodations,” which led to the creation of the Bouchard-Taylor Commission in February 2007. It was preceded in the spring of 2006 by surveys and articles in the Journal de Montréal on Quebeckers’ “concerns” about immigration. Continue reading

Interview with Pierre Chénier, Leader of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec

 

PMLQ.logo350The role of the “major parties,” of diversionary and the real issues, and how to intervene in this election

To inform readers that there is a real alternative in the Quebec election, we are providing information on the stand and views of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais. 

Chantier Politique: Election day is Monday, April 7. What is the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ) predicting?

Pierre Chénier Marie-Victorin

Pierre Chénier
Marie-Victorin

Pierre Chénier: Predictions today are not reliable because of the phenomenon that has become known as electoral coups. The so-called major political parties and the monopoly media are using marketing tools to peddle scare tactics and other nonsense to disinform the polity. The PMLQ thinks that the best outcome would be for the Quebec people once again to bring in a minority government so that nobody has the unfettered possibility to push destructive programs on the people. To achieve this requires the concerted recognition that how people vote can make a difference. Continue reading

Position of Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec on urgency to declare a free and sovereign state of Quebec

THE media is portraying the battle in the elections currently underway in Quebec as one between two parties of the rich, the Parti Quebecois and the Liberals, the central issue as one of borderless sovereignty and the alternative presented by smaller parties as “fringe,” if they are mentioned at all. The sovereignty of the nation of Quebec is an opportunity for the working class and the people to put on the agenda the renewal of the so-called democratic institutions to vest sovereign power in the people. To inform readers that there is a real alternative, we are providing information on the stand of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec (PMLQ), which is presenting 24 candidates in the April 7 Quebec elections in the following regions: the National Capital, Mauricie, Montérégie, Montréal and the Outaouais.

Sighting: Dress codes – which ones are religious?

THE Charter of Quebec Values imposes an irrational and backward dress code on the polity of Quebec. The section of the bill entitled Restriction on Wearing Religious Symbols reads:

5. In the exercise of their functions, personnel members of public bodies must not wear objects such as headgear, clothing, jewelry or other adornments which, by their conspicuous nature, overtly indicate a religious affiliation.

This attempt to have the state monitor the clothing of individuals working for the civil service or public schools at any level constitutes state interference with the human person. Continue reading

Charter of Quebec Values – Brief of the Marxist-Leninist 
Party of Quebec on Bill 60

WE ARE reproducing for the information of readers an extremely important brief by PMLQ on the recent Charter of Quebec Values. The PMLQ thinks that the following sections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are pertinent when considering the duties of the state in matters taken up by this Bill.

Article 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 21: (2) Everyone has the right of equal access to public service in his country.

Article 29: (2) In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.

The PMLG concludes “Overall, the PMLQ thinks this bill is fundamentally flawed and should be withdrawn in toto.” Continue reading
