Toronto Rally for International Working Women’s Day 2021!
Join us for a rally on International Working Women’s Day! Across the
world for over 100 years, this day has been an occasion to advance the
struggle of the working class and revolutionary women as we fight to put
an end to imperialism, capitalism and patriarchy.
When: Monday, March 8, 5:30 PM Where: Yonge & Finch, North York
Imperialism, as the highest stage of capitalism, unleashes horrors
and violence on the oppressed peoples of the world in order to enrich
itself. Women of the oppressed classes face the worst violence: the most
exploitative jobs, harassment at work and on the streets, backbreaking
domestic labour and abuse at home – and the list goes on. Here in
settler-colonial Canada, the Canadian State pursues a centuries-old
policy of genocide against Indigenous Nations, targeting Indigenous
women in particular. This appears most clearly in the crisis of missing
and murdered Indigenous women, which the State continues to perpetuate.
We are in the midst of a historic crisis of imperialism. Every day,
imperialist powers like Canada pump more money into wars of conquest and
aggression, desperately trying to find profitable ventures while every
day it is less and less feasible to maintain them. We see this crisis in
the response of the ruling classes to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. The
capitalists impose mass layoffs and evictions in a futile effort to
keep themselves afloat, while the State works overtime to maintain the
whole rotten order, yet it can never solve the problems inherent to
capitalism. Amid such conditions, working women have been among the most
harshly hit by the dying throes of this system.
Imperialism is drowning – and it is time for the workers and
oppressed peoples of the world to finish the job! Make no mistake, even
in its sick and rotten condition, it is still a brutal oppressor. It
will stop at nothing to preserve the system of private property and the
oppression of women which is rooted in this system. Only a Militarized
Communist Party, mobilizing the masses for People’s War, is capable of
smashing the throne of capital and ensuring the real emancipation of
women. Today there is no genuine Communist Party in Canada, and so it is
our historical duty to reconstitute it! Only with the active
participation of proletarian women will the Communist Party of Canada be
We call on all people whose blood boils with fury at exploitation and
injustice to join us in the struggle against imperialism, capitalism
and patriarchy! Revolutionary vigour alone won’t keep COVID-19 and the
cold away, so be sure to dress warmly and bring a mask.
Women of the working class: it is our duty to reconstitute the Communist Party of Canada!
Wave after wave, blow after blow – against imperialism and patriarchy!
