Toronto Rally Demands “Drop the Charges”

On Sept. 16, 2021, for the umpteenth time, protestors gathered outside Mayor John Tory’s luxury condominium at 1 Bedford Road.  This episode of the “The Mayor Tory Gong Show” was brought to you by the Toronto Police Service.  On July 21, cops stormed an encampment at Lamport Stadium.  With considerable violence, Toronto police and private security staff evicted the people living there.  Police dished out the same violence to those who defended their house-less neighbours from eviction.  Twenty-six encampment defenders were charged, including Socialist Action member Corey David.  The charges are standard cop nonsense: “resist arrest”, “obstruct a peace officer”, “assault officer”, “trespassing”, etc..  

Three Articles from Socialists in Afghanistan

Socialist Action / Ligue pour l’Action socialiste in the Canadian state is pleased to share the following trio of recent articles from the Left Radical of Afghanistan party. We have been in touch with that party for a number of years, and welcome its trenchant account of the political scene, on the ground.  While the LR of A party, which evolved decades ago from Maoism and towards Revolutionary Marxism, does not, in the articles below, specifically project the fight for a workers’ government and the need for a revolutionary international, we do appreciate its intransigent opposition to the imperialist intervention/occupation of the past twenty years.  The LR of A party is a revolutionary socialist organization that is operating under extremely difficult circumstances.  SA/LAS is pleased to be in direct contact with this organization of militants, to which we send our fervent revolutionary greetings and solidarity.  (We have taken the liberty to lightly edit the somewhat rough original translated text.) – BW
