What's New: Reclaiming the Dead

by Jordy Cummings | September 29, 2016

What can be said about the Grateful Dead that has not been said before? They are on one hand somewhere below Coldplay and Nickelback on the list of hatred-objects for Leftists of who came of age between the late 80s and late 90s, signifying affluent frat kids tripping balls and hacky sacking, earnest liberals reading Sean Wilentz and taking bong hits, and so on and so forth.



What's New: Canada's Silence On Illegal Israeli Settlements Is Acquiescence

by Thomas Woodley | September 29, 2016

Last week, the world was informed of yet another expansion of Israeli 'settlements' by the Netanyahu government. Israel announced plans for 285 new units in the West Bank, and the retroactive approval of 178 units that were built in the 1980s. Part of an ongoing series of announcements, Israel has now advanced plans for 1,700 new units since July 1.



What's New: Justin Trudeau approves $36-billion LNG ‘carbon bomb’ on B.C. coast

by Derrick O'Keefe | September 28, 2016

Just a day after royals William and Kate visited and trumpeted new protections for the Great Bear Rainforest in B.C., the federal government has announced it’s giving the greenlight to a controversial fossil fuel mega-project that threatens both an ecologically sensitive stretch of the Pacific coast and any chance Canada has of meeting its international climate commitments under the Paris Agreement.



What's New: Justin (sunnyways) Trudeau talks left wing, governs right

by Mersiha Gadzo | September 28, 2016

Many celebrated Justin Trudeau's election, thinking the charismatic leader would turn a new page for Canada, especially for Canadian Muslims who overwhelmingly voted for the Liberals in 2015. Yet the Liberals who presented themselves as open and transparent while in opposition have proven to be anything but in government. While in opposition, the Liberals advocated for three innocent Canadian Muslims tortured in the Middle East with CSIS complicity.



What's New: Trudeau government approves Pacific NorthWest LNG project

| September 28, 2016

The export facility is now set to be constructed on Lax U'u'la (Lelu Island) on Lax Kw’alaams First Nation territory. The project is being led by the Malaysian state-owned company Petronas. Beyond the project being one of the largest greenhouse gas emitters in Canada, the LNG terminal and its associated upstream operations would also consume 5.1 million cubic metres of fresh water per year, the equivalent of the annual fresh water use of 56,000 people.



What's New: The Colonialism of the Present

by Andrew Bard Epstein | September 28, 2016

In March 1990, armed warriors from Kanesatake — one of several Mohawk communities in Canada and the United States that constitute the eastern-most nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy — erected barricades to prevent the further extension of a private golf course into their land. When a police invasion four months later ended in the death of an officer, nearly three thousand Canadian soldiers descended. Mohawks from Kahnawake blockaded the Mercier Bridge into Montreal in solidarity. A seventy-eight day standoff ensued.



Bullet #1308: The Traffic Hierarchy

by Planka.nu | September 27, 2016

Mobility and class are deeply entangled. Not only because one's potential for mobility often has to do with one's economic position, but also because a society built on today's mobility paradigm – automobility – directly contributes to growing economic and social differences. A society which puts the car on a pedestal quite obviously favours motorists. Another obvious fact is that white high-income and middle-aged men are an over-represented group among motorists.

Labour forum: Understanding the 'Gig Economy'

Understanding the 'Gig Economy'
The Global Labour Research Centre (York University), the Socialist Project, and the Centre for Social Justice are pleased to host a talk on "Understanding the 'Gig Economy': the Political Economy of Platform Capitalism."

with Ursula Huws, Professor of Labour and Globalisation, University of Hertfordshire.

The recent explosive growth of online platforms for managing labour has brought mixed responses. Is it a prefigurative model of a new post-capitalist form of work organisation? Or is capitalism up to its old tricks? Drawing on recent research on 'crowd work' in Europe, Ursula Huws will provide a critical analysis of platform capitalism, placing it in the context of the new wave of restructuring and accumulation following the 2007-7 financial crisis.
