Canada: Montreal Marxist Winter School 2021 is approaching – events and reading list

Our Canadian comrades' 11th annual Montreal Marxist School will be held on Zoom over the February long weekend from Saturday 13th to Monday 15th. As they will not have to worry about travel they decided to expand the school to cover three days instead of two—adding four sessions! As usual, all presentations and discussions will be held in French and English with translation. Over 600 people have already registered! If you haven’t registered, don’t wait any longer!

The Montreal Marxist Winter School has enjoyed revolutionary growth and is now the biggest Marxist event in the country. More than 250 people attended in February 2020, just prior to the pandemic. As we cannot currently meet in person, our 2021 event will be held online and it is set to be the biggest one yet.

Forward to 1,000 participants at the School!
