The sister section of Socialist Fightback in the US (https://socialistrevolution.org/) is doing a Kickstarter fundraising for their work. One of our US comrades in New Jersey makes this beautiful "Mount RushMarx" design, and it will be available on brown or green T-shirts and a 18"x24" poster.
They have a target on Kickstarter of reaching $1500 in 72 hours. Help our comrades there to build the forces of Marxism and a political alternative to the unfolding farce that is US politics!
Socialist Fightback Students will be going to Toronto's Pearson Airport tomorrow to support striking baggage handlers. Join us!
L'École mondiale de la Tendance marxiste internationale (TMI) a réuni en Italie, fin juillet, plus de 300 militants venus des quatre coins du monde. Une vingtaine de militants de La Riposte socialiste/Fightback ont participé à cette semaine de discussion et de formation.
On Thursday, July 27, 700 workers with Teamsters Local 419 voted 95 per cent in favour of a strike after rejecting an offer by Swissport, one of the largest service providers at Pearson Airport in Toronto.

Socialist Fightback comrades at the Pearson Airport picket lines yesterday with the 700 workers from Teamsters Local 419!
At the Pearson Airport picket lines today with the 700 workers from Teamsters Local 419 who have been on strike since Thursday.
We started at Terminal 3 Departu...res and marched to a hotel where scabs and the Swissport management were housed. We then headed to Vista Cargo where there was another more significant picket line slowing down cargo trucks into the airport. Each truck would get about 20 minutes before being allowed in.
The mood of the workers is: frustration at management and enthusiasm to fight. They are standing up to some horrible working conditions and an extremely unfair contract. There is a palpable anger against Swissport and an eagerness to fight. Swissports contract brings 250 non-unionized agency workers to put pressure on hours, wages and overall militancy.
Speaking to the workers, their issues are not properly reported on in the mainstream media. They've had their wages frozen for 2 and a half years and with rising inflation they are faced with a meager pay rise that keeps them in relative poverty. There are more issues at hand that me and Juan will detail in an article for fightback.
Overall the workers like our "Picket Lines Mean Do Not Cross" banner and some have bought our newspaper. They were asking for more of the same banner if we had some and treated us as comrades in the struggle. They were also happy to see us out in support. My father who also works at the tarmac at Pearson is at home injured. I am out here for him and many others who are standing up in what may be a long fight. Support these workers on strike in whatever way you can, visit the picket lines if you want too as they welcome any support!
