About Northstar Compass
Chair, Editor of NSC
Northstar Compass is
a monthly magazine containing the latest news
and views of the struggles of the Soviet peoples
against Mevedev's capitalist regime and its imperialist
backers. It includes English translations from
communist and progressive newspapers in the former
Soviet Union. These news items are not printed
in the capitalist media.
Northstar Compass is the publication of the
International Council for Friendship
and Solidarity with Soviet People,
who are struggling to rebuild socialism in
the countries that have for more than 70 years
constituted the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
The International Council for Friendship and Solidarity
with Soviet People unites – on an independent and non-partisan
basis – all those organizations and individuals who
support the above objective.
In this spirit, Northstar Compass publishes articles of interest in this
struggle, covering news and information on the contemporary situation inside the
former USSR, as well as related world news about the struggles against
neo-liberal globalization and imperialism, now rampant in the world.
Additionally, Northstar Compass covers events and issues concerning the
friendship organizations associated with the International Council.
Northstar Compass thus acts as a unifying force to consolidate and coordinate
the anti-imperialist forces of the world with the struggle for socialism and the
restoration of the Soviet Union. In this manner we act as a united front, but
are not a forum for ideological debates. Soviet people themselves will choose
the path they will follow towards socialism and onwards to Communism.

These are the comrades that work voluntarily in
order to keep Northstar Compass being published regularly
– even though the biggest load in this is carried by
Michael Lucas, its Editor and Helen Lucas, its Financial Secretary. These
comrades plan the events that raises finances for NSC, that helps to pay
the expenses of running the organization from day to day.
The Canadian Friends of Soviet People, with headquarters in Toronto,
not only plans and carries out activities in Toronto, such as meetings,
lectures, Soviet film showings, celebrating important dates in Soviet
history – it carries a burden that makes the Friendship Society a viable
and influential entity.
Currently more then 500 of our comrades across the World participate
