After Charlottesville, Torontonians shut down alt-right event

The movement against the alt-right won another victory on Tuesday, August 23 in Toronto. This was the date of a supposed “free speech” event organized by Islamophobic, transphobic, and racist commentators associated with Rebel Media, Canada’s equivalent of Breitbart. Coming just over a week after the killing of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, the community reaction was predictably explosive. The right wingers also made the mistake of holding their hate-filled event at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto, which has a successful Socialist Fightback Students club. Under pressure from the community, the university administration shut down the alt-right. But the community still organized a successful celebration of this victory.

Fightback Organizes Against Trump!

In the weeks since Donald Trump was elected president of the United States there has been a massive response from workers and youth who are disgusted by his bigoted politics. Canada is not immune to the impact of the these events, and there has been a wave of politicization as Canadians look for ways to resist the racism, misogyny, xenophobia and homophobia that Trump represents. Fightback has been providing the answer to this question, organizing public events, discussions and interventions, gaining an audience among the many who are realizing that Trump and his kind cannot be defeated by the same establishment politics that spawned him, and that the only way forward is to fight for socialism.
