Socialist Fightback Club

mcgill_fightback_logo

The members of Socialist Fightback seek to pique student interest in Marxist political theory (and practice). We are opposed to a world where austerity is the norm, while at the same time 85 people own as much wealth as the lower 3.5 billion. As Marxists, we seek to build a world without hunger, poverty, and unemployment by instituting public democratic ownership over the main productive forces of the economy.

Our club organizes events about twice a month where we have movie screenings, presentations, and/or reading groups to discuss various topics of Marxist theory.
