Austerity is hitting hardest in the regions of the eurozone that were already the poorest, their economies dominated by imperialist multi-nationals and other foreign investment. Workers are fighting back, in different ways and in different circumstances, but are everywhere held back by the politics of their leaders. In Ireland, the fight against austerity has consolidated around one issue, the registering of the population in order to impose household, property and water taxes that will take hundreds of euros from incomes already slashed by tax increases and wage and job cuts. This campaign is a promising beginning, but much more is needed.

1 June 2012 -- English-Canadian protests against “emergency” law aimed at crushing Quebec student strike
A week and a half after the Quebec government passed Bill 78, a draconian law seeking to crush a powerful 15-week student strike against a massive tuition hike, over 2,000 people joined a “pots and pans” demonstration in Toronto on 30 May. The Toronto protest was one of several rallies across English Canada in solidarity with the historic anti-austerity struggle of the Quebecois students. The marches were modeled on the nightly “manifs de casseroles” in Montreal. The Toronto Globe and Mail (30 May) reports:
“Children, their parents, working adults and the elderly have joined the students to demand an end to Bill 78, which bans unauthorized public assemblies and curtails the right to protest. [Quebec] Premier Jean Charest’s government aimed to quell the student strike against a tuition increase by force. Instead, the protest spread.”In Toronto, IBT comrades carried placards in English and French and distributed our statement “Quebec Students Show the Way: For Workers' Strikes to Smash Austerity!”. The Quebec student strike, which began in mid-February, has become a flash point of the international struggle against capitalist austerity.
