Comrades in Toronto marked May 1st with an evening rally which began at Moss Park —one of the most impoverished sections of the city’s downtown area— and proceeded to march eastward over the Don Valley Parkway where they proudly displayed a banner from the bridge atop the major commuter artery. From there they continued through Chinatown East shouting chants for the defeat of the bourgeoisie and singing The Internationale until reaching their destination in Little India, where their tone changed, taking aim at India’s vicious “Operation Green Hunt” —a war against the people of India— and calling for victory to the ‘Naxalite’ fighters of the Communist Party of India (Maoist).

Here public support was most enthusiastic. Despite the late hour, dozens of people cheered from their windows in support of the message being put forward by the two-dozen dedicated communist comrades. It is clear from this that sections of the masses are indeed primed for organization along a revolutionary line and it is the duty of revolutionaries to carry out this task with vigour.

This agitprop march was called for by the PCR-RCP Canada and endorsed by the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee.
