Le Parti communiste du Canada condamne la montée des actions dirigées par les groupes racistes et néofascistes à travers le pays, telles que les rassemblements anti-musulmans du 4 mars, organisés par la Coalition canadienne des citoyens inquiets (Canadian Coalition of Concerned Citizens – CCCC) dans plus de 60 villes canadiennes. Alors que ce groupe se dit en faveur de la justice, en réalité, il joue sur la peur des travailleurs et des travailleuses qui font face aux impacts de la crise économique capitaliste, au chômage, à l’austérité et aux coupures dans les services sociaux, afin de promouvoir leur véritable agenda suprématiste blanc.

La vague actuelle de violence xénophobe a été attisée par les récents événements aux États-Unis, mais il ne faut pas oublier que l’État capitaliste canadien a été fondé sur le génocide des peuples autochtones, l’exploitation des travailleuses et des travailleurs migrant-e-s et dans le but raciste de créer « un pays pour l’homme blanc ».

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.

Dear friends,

I’m writing to you because we need your help.

We are at a tipping point. The ultra-right is growing quickly. And the attack on working people is getting stronger.

You Can Build the Fight For Peace, Jobs, Sovereignty, Democracy and Socialism!

Working people have reached the breaking point.  Mass unemployment, precarious work, and poverty are the new normal. We demand fundamental economic, social and political change.

The ultra-right wants to use this crisis to target us. They have targeted immigrants and refugees, Muslims, racialized and Indigenous peoples, women, organized labour and people’s movements like Black Lives Matter, Idle No More, No-One is Illegal, and BDS.

Now more than ever, the Communist Party must be a strong force.

Statement on the U.S. election, Central Executive Committee, Communist Party of Canada, Nov. 10, 2016

The Republicans now control both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and the executive branch, with power to make crucial appointments to the Supreme Court. Continue reading »
