Over the weekend of May 23 and 24, revolutionary Marxists from California, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Madison, Dallas, Kentucky, Ohio, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, and London gathered at the University of Pittsburgh for the 2015 WIL National School. Nearly 60 comrades attended this event, a clear indication of the enthusiasm for the ideas of Marxism amongst the comrades of the American section of the IMT. In the midst of dramatic movements around the world and in the USA itself, the success of this school reflects the need for a clear Marxist understanding of history and current events as the working class struggles to challenge the exploitation and oppression of the capitalist system.

Supporters of Fightback and La Riposte gathered over the May long weekend for the 15th annual congress of the Canadian section of the International Marxist Tendency. It was the first year that the duration was extended from two days to three. This was done to make more room for the high level, impassioned discussion and translation which was limited in the past. Revolutionaries from Quebec, British Columbia, the United States and as far away as Great Britain travelled to Toronto to participate in the weekend’s discussions highlighting our dedication to internationalism.

On Saturday 14th March, the 34th annual congress of The Struggle, the Pakistan section of the International Marxist tendency commenced its proceedings in Lahore.

The rise of SYRIZA to power – a veritable political earthquake – has opened up a new period in the class struggle, not only in Greece but the whole of Europe. Which way the SYRIZA government will go in the coming months will affect all the European Left.

Over 150 comrades, from 25 different cities, gathered at the “El Pueblo” Arci Circle in Milan on 6-8 December for the national conference of [Left-wing, Working class and Revolution], the name that the comrades of the IMT in Italy agreed upon during the proceedings. It was a relaunch of the organisation, and there could be no better time for it! After years of relative calm, the Italian working class is reawakening, and along with it the class struggle.
