Popularizing the MLPC Program
More Important Than Ever
– Anne Jamieson, MLPC candidate, Vancouver South –
When distributing copies of Renewal Update (RU) and talking with people in my riding, we notice that everyone is very responsive to the RU issue that clearly exposes “the irresponsible snap election” for what it is: a barefaced tactic by the Trudeau Liberals to try to consolidate their power during what they consider to be an opportune time for them. In the middle of a pandemic with a fourth wave already taking place is apparently an opportune time for them. Wildfires displacing people in BC is also no deterrent to calling an election at this time. The fact that people have no time or opportunity to discuss the serious issues that should be discussed during an election is considered to be a plus for the powers that be.
Media sources cynically do the calculations as to whether Trudeau and his entourage have guessed right in calling an election now rather than later: a free weekly newspaper in Vancouver asks “Will Trudeau’s gamble pay off?” The Economist weighs the pros and cons: “Now, before people get to know the new Conservative leader better?” etc.
People are, in fact, angry about the snap election being called and many are disgusted by all cartel party politicians at present. Popularizing the program of the Marxist-Leninist Party is more important than ever to dispel feelings of despair among people, and turn feelings of helpless fury among many into a determination to free themselves from the domination by the cartel party system over the political process. In other words, to empower themselves. An informed vote YES! Party government NO! All out for democratic renewal!
