London, Ontario commemoration

Mond Jones, a youth leader of the Detroit branch of Workers World Party, addressed a meeting commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, held in London, Ontario, Canada, on Nov. 4 2017. The meeting was organized by the London chapter of the Young Communist League of Canada.[1]

Jones emphasized WWP’s solidarity with all those fighting U.S. imperialism, from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to Venezuela, Cuba, Syria and Iran, and called for an end to the colonial status of Puerto Rico and for canceling the debt. Other speakers included Adrien Welsh, general secretary of the Young Communist League of Canada, based in Montreal, Quebec; and Dave McKee, Ontario provincial leader of the Communist Party of Canada. The meeting was chaired by Clara Sorrenti, organizer of the YCL in London. There was also a dynamic spoken word performance by Mohammad Ali, an artist and activist from Toronto.[2]
