Cette année, les femmes vont célébrer la Journée internationale des femmes avec un regain de force, après qu’environ 5 millions d’entre elles aient pris la rue le 21 janvier, avec leurs alliés partout à travers le monde, pour s’opposer au programme xénophobe, raciste, misogyne, homophobe, islamophobe et pro-guerre de Donald Trump et de son gouvernement de banquiers de Wall Street, de milliardaires et de magnats du pétrole. Cette marche a été une manifestation de résistance contre la violence patriarcale, l’inégalité, l’exploitation et l’oppression perpétuée par le capitalisme à travers le monde. Plusieurs principes d’unité durables apparaissent de la marche, dont le support à l’égalité économique, au droit des femmes à vivre sans violence, à leur droit et à leur liberté pleine et entière en matière de reproduction, au plein droit à l’égalité pour la communauté LGBT, pour les personnes racisées, les travailleuses et les travailleurs, les immigrantes et les immigrants, les personnes handicapées, pour les droits civils et la justice environnementale, contre la brutalité policière et le profilage racial, pour démilitariser l’application de la loi et mettre fin à l’incarcération massive.

The Communist Party of Canada has condemned the Liberal government’s decision to abandon its promise to introduce electoral reform, calling it self-serving and anti-democratic.

“The PM says there ‘s no consensus in the country for electoral reform”, said Communist leader Liz Rowley, “but that’s not true. Seventy percent of electors cast votes for parties that campaigned for electoral reform, including the NDP, Greens, Communists, and the Liberals who promised to make every vote count and to do it in time for the next election.   That’s a clear mandate.
