Comrades! The recent launch of the revolutionary web magazine ISKRA is excellent news for the class struggle and the revolutionary proletariat in Canada. Every day, thousands of workers across the country are discovering, suffering and fighting back against capitalist exploitation and eagerly demand in return that we provide them with a vast network of information, political newspapers, revolutionary medias, proletarian news, workers’ stories and fighting letters, thousands of tools that allow them to be supplied with ammunition to organize and reach the target of the revolution. We have more than enough of the same bourgeois bastards that are vomiting on us day after day: we seek a way out, we seek answers, we hope to see communism gain strength, influence and clarity, and we want to tackle more and more of the larger issues of class struggle in Canada. The masses demand the organization of the rebellion! And it’s a clamor we cannot ignore! It is a requirement waiting to be satisfied that only encourages and amplifies the strength and determination of the vanguard in the country!
With ISKRA, our goal is to build an accessible, flexible and lively political journal, allowing to know and understand the varied communist point of view on the political news and the revolutionary struggle; a communist newspaper that is interested in the heroic struggle of the millions of men and women workers in the country who are shaping the world as it is; a newspaper that works to ensure that the various events in the political conjuncture serve the progress of the revolution camp by giving it the opportunity to sharpen its arsenal for taking on the fight. It is necessary to win larger sections of the proletariat in order to break with the news and the point of view of the bourgeois newspapers. We must seize the great pool of information, the immense revolutionary potential produced and reproduced by the class struggle and revealed by events that occur every day, the boundless courage of the proletariat, new forms of struggle, ideas put forward by the workers in production and the aspiration to socialism of the masses. This is a school where we will never stop learning!
We are the magazine of the proletarian struggle! We are the words of fire that will consume this unjust world! When we write, we hope to provoke the thunder of the action of the masses. And when the anger of the masses strikes this rotten old world, we want everyone to share it, make it resonate and make it known to the rest of our comrades, to the rest of the workers in the struggle. We want every worker who reads our newspaper to see us as one of their own, not as a mirror sending back a simple copy of themselves, but as the revelation, the hope of a new world that belongs to them as much as us! We want all the workers who discover our newspaper to become aware and feel that there is much force to be put in action and feel the inexhaustible potential that a united, conscious and politically organized class represents!
We need you!
In order to build this cutting edge weapon, to help it develop across the country this new political newspaper of the revolution and of the proletariat ISKRA is looking for correspondents. In order to become a true newspaper of the proletarian struggle accompanying the proletariat from the factory to the house, we must build a vast network to centralize information. That is: relay points, informants, antennas, correspondents, echoes, repercussions, proletarian publicists. We need all the materials, all the information on the reality of the workers, on the struggles being waged, on production, reports on the political forces in the country, on the struggle of the masses against the bourgeoisie. We want to cover the whole reality of our class and we want the workers to participate in this coverage without any filters. We want to learn everything from the reality of the working class today, right here in Canada. To organize the working class, we must remind all those who deny its existence that it does exist and that it will be able to rid us of capitalism!
Our newspaper will allow us to become, as Lenin put it, an omniscient party with its antennas in every nook and cranny of the struggles of the proletariat. No matter where you are in the country, no matter what language you speak, it is this correspondence that will allow to master at the current stage two major dimensions necessary for a communist party: distance and proximity. What will fuel our ability to control more and more reality and issues of the class struggle will pass through all the small comments: the description of the work at the factory, the elements of analysis of a working-class city, the various data provided on the reality of unemployment, undeclared work, party influence in a region, comments on published articles, etc. This is one of the best ways to get a lot of information without the filters and prejudices of the bourgeoisie. These materials do not have to be literary works. The important thing is that keep on coming, lots of them and that they have variety.
These correspondences are, in their way, a great initiative of investigation, gathering and organization of the revolutionary forces, a continuous and permanent dialogue between the vanguard and the proletariat. We want to talk to workers and have their stories read: what they think and how they live. It is through these exchanges that we can propose, verify and revive the revolutionary activity towards ever higher summits. We must seize and develop the will of people in order to swell the camp of the revolution. To all our readers, to all of our supporters, if you know a friend, even someone isolated somewhere say Val-d’Or, Abitibi or anywhere in the country, who is in favor of worker’s power, tell them to write to us. A vast network of correspondences is a valuable tool for organizing working-class cities, creating antennas, targeting hot spots, organizing tours and preparing Party organizing conferences where the future storms are taking form. Each worker has parcels of news that seem unimportant, but ultimately, when they are put together, they end up making all the difference in the world. It is with these small bits of information about a factory, a union, a city, the struggles of the ones and the others, that one finally reaches a totalizing knowledge of the reality of the capitalist exploitation and the struggle of the classes. Do not be afraid or censor yourself! It is not obligatory to start only with news or information, it is sufficient to be: “for the revolution! Or “to have a question! “. From the simple word of encouragement to the detailed report, there are all kinds of ways to help us understand, shape and master the great process of revolution.Comrade, ask questions, speak and express yourself! Comment and help us understand and learn! A first correspondence is a first step towards organization, a first step for the revolution!
To those who hope for the revolution, we say: make ISKRA your newspaper! Read it, support it and share it! Send it your comments, your questions, your news. We need you! Be the eyes of the revolution in your factory! Be the voice of the exploited of your city! Be the party antenna in your area! Be a pioneer of the revolution in every corner of the country! Be one of the many and wonderful links in the chain unifying the revolutionary action of the Canadian proletariat!
