Monday July 31, 2017
The Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice -Venezuela Solidarity Campaign congratulates the Venezuelan people for their overwhelmingly successful Constituent Assembly vote yesterday. The massive turnout of over 8 million people was a clear demonstration that they were not intimidated by a US-backed campaign of violence and threats, and that the heroic masses of Venezuela continue to mobilize together in defence of their dignity and self-determination. The successful Constituent Assembly vote was definitely a significant step forward for the Bolivarian Revolution led by democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro.
Sunday July 30, 2017
On May 1, 2017 the President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro called for the formation of a National Constituent Assembly in order to improve and broaden Venezuela’s Constitution and strengthen the Bolivarian revolutionary process. Over the last three months, in the face of increasing right-wing violence, the majority of people in Venezuela, in the millions have mobilized and organized as part of this profound democratic and constitutionally recognized process.

Long Live the Memory of Leslie Feinberg Transgender Leader in the Working-class Movement and Revolutionary Communist Fighter
Leslie Feinberg, who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist, died on Nov. 15. She succumbed to complications from multiple tick-borne co-infections, including Lyme disease, babeisiosis and protomyxzoa rheumatica, after decades of illness.
She died at home in Syracuse, N.Y., with her partner and spouse of 22 years, Minnie Bruce Pratt, at her side. Her last words were:“Hasten the revolution! Remember me as a revolutionary communist.”
The 18th World Festival of Youth and Students opened December 7th – 13th, in the Ecuadorian capital, Quito, under the theme ' Youth unite against imperialism, for a world of peace, solidarity and social transformation', with the participation of delegations representing more than 83 countries from around the world.
This 18th edition is dedicated to Eloy Alfaro, leader of the Liberal Revolution of Ecuador (1895-1924); Comandante Hugo Chávez; and Kwame Nkrumah, the Ghanaian independence leader.
On August 31,2012, at Metrotown Skytrain Station near Vancouver, Canada, Transit police officers and the RCMP assaulted, handcuffed and removed three activists that were peacefully distributing the Fire This Time newspaper (FTT). Because FTT is a non-commercial, free social justice newspaper, the officers had no legal ground to stop the distribution. It is clear that the aim of the assault was to intimidate and harass social justice activists which is political targeting as FTT publishes many articles against war and in support of social justice struggles in Canada, from Indigenous rights to labour organizing.

It is also a case of police brutality, which is a disturbing trend growing in Canada...
