Fightback, the Marxists in English Canada have taken the initiative to spread the inspiring Quebec Student strike across the country. They are doing this in solidarity with their comrades in Quebec organized around La Riposte. The comrades launched an open letter calling on the Canadian Federation of Students, the main student federation in English Canada, to organize strike ballots for free education and to support the Quebec movement.
This call has been taken up massively and garnered attention from the corporate media. Fightback’s Farshad Azadian was invited onto Sun News, Canada’s equivalent to Fox News, to defend the students. In response to the rabid right wing host the comrade skillfully defends the movement and calls for workers to join the students in the struggle.
