One of the most common questions faced by Marxists is what happened to the Soviet Union. How did the greatest event in the history of the world working-class movement degenerate into a bureaucratic caricature of socialism? How did Stalin come to dominate the USSR? Is there something inherent to Bolshevism that makes this bureaucratic decay inevitable? Camilo Cahis, of Fightback’s editorial board, recently spoke on the rise of Stalinism and the degeneration of the USSR at Ryerson University in Toronto.

On January 25th Greece will vote in a general election. Syriza is likely to be the party voted to power. This poses a dilemma for the European capitalists as one part of their machine, bourgeois democracy, risks colliding with another, their programme of austerity, which has been visited upon the Greek people for the past five years. This is seen as a serious threat to the plans of the rulers of Europe to solve the economic crisis by an all-out attack on the living standards of the working class.

The sorry state of Toronto’s public transportation system dominated the city’s most recent municipal election campaign. Thus, it didn’t come as much of a surprise that one of the first policy announcements made by the new mayor of Toronto, John Tory, concerned the state of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). However, Tory’s minor reforms don’t come close to addressing the roots of Toronto’s transit crisis or the daily hardships faced by workers and youth who depend upon the system.

The terrorist attack against the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo has caused a huge wave of anger and indignation throughout the country. In the evening after the attack, over a hundred thousand people took to the streets of many cities. The revulsion aroused amongst the masses by this barbaric act has been exacerbated by the fact that many of the victims were very popular and held in high regard.
