Winter Communist School #2: The Student Struggle

Hello everyone,

I am excited to announce that RSM-UofT is having its second communist school of winter 2014 this upcoming Monday, February 10th from 4-6PM, at the Centre for Women and Trans People (563 Spadina Ave, room 100). The topic is on the student movement. A more detailed description of some of the issues we will touch on is outlined below. We will also have a speaker from Guelph to talk about the upcoming national conference of Revolutionary Student and Youth happening in Montreal on March 1 & 2nd. This is a communist school not to be missed!

Coming out of the Quebec student strike of 2012, radical and revolutionary students from across Canada have increasingly tried to emulate the militancy of the Quebec students in their own locales. And yet despite the increasing radicalisation of students, the traditional student associations (the Canadian Federation of Students and the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations) have proven unable to advance the student struggles outside of Quebec. In this context, the Revolutionary Communist Party of Canadainitiated a series of conferences -the third of which is to be held in Montreal in March of 2014 (http://www.mer-rsm.com/2014/01/call-out-for-third-national-conference.html)- designed to bring revolutionary students together for the formation of a real Revolutionary Student Movement; a truly combative student movement capable of winning real victories and advancing the class struggle in Canada.
What is the role of students within the class struggle? Are students a revolutionary subject? Why aren’t the current student associations -the CFS and CASA- capable of advancing the class struggle in Canada and Quebec? What type of organisation is needed among students to advance the class struggle? What is, and why do we need a Revolutionary Student Movement?
