Edmonton Marxist Summer School

Join Fightback for the Western Marxist Summer School in Edmonton, Alberta! Building off our our successes out east with the Marxist Winter School in Montreal which has grown to be the biggest Marxist gathering in the country, we launch the first ever Edmonton Marxist Summer School!

2019 marks 100 years since the inspiring Winnipeg General Strike of 1919. In honour of the events of 1919, and to carry on the revolutionary spirit of the West, our Summer School will be focused on this and other important topics. Register today!
