What's New: The Capitalocene

by Benjamin Kunkel | February 28, 2017

How is the ecological predicament of the 21st century to be conceived of? Politically, how is it to be confronted, and by whom? The basic features of the problem are plain enough, when you can stand to look. Universal carbon pollution, known by the mild term ‘climate change’, is already distempering the seasons with bounding extremes of heat and cold, and magnifying storms and droughts; increasingly, it will spoil harvests, spread tropical diseases, and drown coastlines.



What's New: A huge women's march is planned for Toronto next month

by Amy Grief | February 27, 2017

International Women's Day is on Wednesday March, 8. And to mark it, the organization International Women's Day Toronto will host its annual march through the city on Saturday, March 11. The event, which has already garnered lots of interest on Facebook, will begin at 11am in U of T's Medical Sciences Building. The march itself will then commence at 1pm and will conclude with a fair in Ryerson University's Student Learning Centre.



What's New: Canada’s role in the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah

by Yves Engler | February 27, 2017

Friday, February 24 is the anniversary of the 1966 coup against leading Pan-Africanist Kwame Nkrumah. Canada played a key role. Following the coup, the Canadian High Commissioner in Accra C.E. McGaughey, wrote that 'a wonderful thing has happened for the West in Ghana and Canada has played a worthy part.'



What's New: Bob White tribute

| February 26, 2017

This tribute video was produced for the CLC convention where Brother Bob White retired. He served as leader of the CLC from 1992 to 1999. White represented the interests of 2.2 million Canadian workers and was always a strong advocate of social justice issues and fair trade practices, not only for Canadians but workers around the world.



Bullet #1375: Western Sahara: An Albatross on African Union’s Conscience

by Nizar K. Visram | February 26, 2017

At the 28th Summit meeting of the African Union (AU) held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 30 January 2017, Morocco's re-admission to the continental body generated heated discussion. At the end of the day the Kingdom of Morocco managed to win over sufficient member states on its side and it was allowed to join the fold unconditionally. Morocco left the Organization of African Unity (OAU), precursor to the AU, in 1984 after the OAU recognized the right to self-determination and independence for the people of the Western Sahara.



Bullet #1374: The Canadian Left and the Quebec Question: The Dilemma That Won’t Go Away

by Pierre Beaudet | February 25, 2017

In September 2015, a fine document emerged from Canadian progressives around the Leap Manifesto. It expresses a broad will to transform the land around a wide platform of social, democratic and environmental transformation, away from the neoliberal ‘model’ that we endure and fight. The Manifesto started by identifying violence against the Indigenous Peoples and the non-response from the Canadian State facing climate change as a crime.



What's New: Remembering Bob White

by Herman Rosenfeld | February 24, 2017

With great sadness, I learned of the death of Bob White. In 1978, he became the leader of the Canadian section of the UAW about a year and half after I started working on the line at GM. Little did I know what an amazing leader and pioneer in working class history he would turn out to be. White, a youthful immigrant from Northern Ireland, came from the shop floor to become the plant chairperson.

Bus Tour: Toxic Toronto

Toxic Toronto
PDAC, the largest gathering in the world for the global mineral industry, begins on March 5. Every year, over 25,000 people descend on the city of Toronto for this 85-year-old trade show and convention. Some have called PDAC the "Superbowl" or the "Oscars" of the extraction industry. But why does it happen here? What is it about Toronto that makes this city PDAC's perfect home? It's certainly no accident.

Join us on a bus tour through the "belly of the beast" to untangle the secret webs of power and money that connect our city to some of the most harmful and toxic mining and extractive projects around the world.
