Not one of the politicians has mentioned this terrible case of neglect, until recently, now that it's come out in the media, and the fucking red cross are coming out to help. And even now, just one opportunist douche, charlie angus of the ndp, has come out to "investigate". Fuck him and fuck them all. Liars, hypocrites, and racists. And we're supposed to be "patriotic". Support the troops to preserve this way of life. Fuck it. I'd like to quote from the fine Comrades in the Revolutionary Initiative, a Maoist group from eastern canada, from their "Six Lines Of Demarcation":
Absolute rejection of the Canadian state
The Canadian state is an instrument of Canada’s monopoly bourgeois ruling class. It is their instrument for war and exploitation of peoples of the neo-colonized peripheries, for the ongoing colonization of indigenous peoples’ lands, for the domination of the working class in Canada, and for the defense of the interests of Canada’s monopoly capitalist ruling class. The workers can not simply take ahold of this state – enter into Parliament, work in the NGOs and social service sector – and think that we can wield all these for our own interests. This is why we reject Parliamentarism and electoralism.
Rather, we must build a New Power, a multinational proletarian-led revolutionary power right in the midst of our enemies. History shows us that such a power that is able to withstand the repression, infiltration, genocide, and terror of imperialism must be led by a disciplined, centralized, democratic vanguard Party of the exploited masses; it must wield a People’s Army under the strict discipline of the vanguard; and it must develop and be developed through a revolutionary United Front consisting of hundreds and thousands of mass organizations – which will be the foundation of the New Power.
To build these three components of the revolutionary movement – Party, People’s Army, and United Front – we must go where the hegemony of the state is the weakest. Whereas Trotskyites build their organizations where the masses (more often the middle strata) are firmly organized under the hegemony of social democrats, especially in the unions and universities, Marxist-Leninist-Maoists advocate organizing the people and building the Party where the masses are most exploited and oppressed, the least organized, and where the state is the weakest. Of course, unionized workers and students should also be organized, but not as the core of the revolution.
To build this New Power, the proletarian revolution, we must begin our accumulation of forces where the hegemony of the state is the weakest.
There are still too many amongst us who have yet to shed their spineless defense of all things "canadian". Canada is an imperialist power. Granted on a lesser scale than the usa, but imperialist none the less. And the ruling class in this land must be overthrown by force. And they will be.
Here's an article from the toronto star about Attawapiskat:
This is reason enough to fight back. If the fact that women can't walk safely down the street at night, that the canadian military are joining in the bombing of a third world country, that canada now unabashedly supports israel in their continued push to cleanse the Arabs off of their own land, that more people are using food banks and homeless shelters than ever before, then this should be reason enough for all of us.
