The IMT is Growing Worldwide!

imt international marxist tendencyCapitalism has been in a technical recovery since the Great Recession of 2008. After the deepest crisis since World War II, the US government claims the economy had its best year of growth since the economic rebound began. And just how did the economy do last year?

Well, perhaps things will improve in 2015? The latest numbers show that first quarter growth in 2015 was a pathetic .2%—just barely over zero.

The Death of Comrade Camilo Cahis

Camilo CahisThe movement has lost a great fighter. Camilo Cahis succumbed to mental illness on the night of Saturday, April 25, 2015. We, his comrades, are forever in his debt. Camilo was a very gentle man, shy, unassuming, and humble. He was also fiercely intelligent and capable of pulling himself up into the role he had assumed as a leader of the Canadian section of the International Marxist Tendency. Sadly, not enough people knew his name or his role. He was sure to become an important figure in the struggles to come.

Fighting Fund Appeal—April 2015

NEWWILLOGO1SmallerThis year, it is our duty as Marxist internationalists to increase our financial support for the IMT’s work around the world and build our section here in the “belly of the beast.” In order to build, we need an infrastructure capable of supporting a larger organization. This means we need a national office for all of our volunteers and future paid staff and a place to house Socialist Appeal and MarxistBooks.com. We also need more travel to the various branches and comrades, especially as we have seen an increase in correspondence from around this enormous country.
