On November 5, 2021 at 5 p m , members of Tigray community in Toronto rallied outside the office of Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland at 344 Bloor St. W., to demand an end to the funding of the genocide in Ethiopia. In Ottawa a two-day rally drew thousands who demanded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau take action to stop the assault on millions in Africa. Members of Socialist Action joined these protests in an effort to raise awareness and bring justice to the people of Tigray.
Companeros, creemos que Estados Unidos es culpable de secuestro. While the US government is guilty of judicial kidnapping in the cases of Venezuelan Alex Saab and Meng Wanzhou, the Canadian government is implicated in the shameful detention of the Chinese company executive, and its promotion of extra-parliamentary regime change in Venezuela.

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.
