The magnificent movement of the workers and youth of Turkey is an inspiration to the whole world. It has turned into a tidal wave of mass protests against the vicious and reactionary Erdogan regime. This is a peoples movement which has acquired insurrectionary dimensions.
Join Fightback and the "Canada Student Collective in Solidarity with Protesters in Turkey", for a jointly organized public discussion and presentation. One of our speakers, Aziz, has just returned from Turkey and will be contributing his eyewitness account of these important events.

The root causes of the Turkish insurrection are the same as those that sparked off the Revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia. They are an expression of the global crisis of the capitalist system with obscene wealth alongside terrible misery, homelessness, youth unemployment, corrupt and dictatorial governments, backed by US imperialism, which trample over the people’s rights in order to enrich their super-rich backers.
The workers of Greece, Cyprus and Turkey, the workers of Europe, Egypt and the whole world have the same problems and are fighting the same enemy.
Down with Erdogan and his gang of thieves!
Solidarity with the workers and youth of Turkey!
Furthermore, we would like to encourage people to get involved in solidarity efforts in Toronto with the struggle in Turkey. Come out to figure out how you can help and be involved in these efforts.
