Bullet #1276: Who Earns Minimum Wage?

by Angella MacEwen | June 29, 2016

Minimum wages have been getting a lot of attention lately. And for good reason. Workers earning minimum wage often struggle to get enough hours, don't have predictable schedules or advance notice of shifts, and many don't even have access to unpaid sick days.



What's New: Bad Investments: Trading Away the Right to Energy Democracy

| June 28, 2016

The recent release by Wikileaks of documents relating to the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) - currently being negotiated in secret in Geneva - has brought a new round of scrutiny not only to the TiSA, but also to the sweeping effort to re-write international trade and investment rules of which it constitutes just a part.



What's New: Five keys to understanding the Spanish election

by Oscar Reyes | June 28, 2016

A stalemate, but the political landscape has still changed. Spain went to the polls on Sunday 26 June with polls suggesting that Unidos Podemos would overtake the traditional social democrats of PSOE, and that the electoral maths might even favour a progressive government led by Podemos’s Pablo Iglesias. That didn’t happen. The best prediction of the 26 June election results turned out to be what happened on 20 December, the inconclusive ballot that led to this month’s re-run.



What's New: The Left Needs to Develop an Alternative Plan for Europe

| June 27, 2016

Economics professor Costas Lapavitsas says Britain's vote to leave is a direct result of the EU's lack of democracy. The question of the referendum touched upon a real, deep class divide in Britain, which came to the fore on this question.



What's New: Where do we go from here?

by Ethan Young | June 27, 2016

From June 17-19, 2016, 3,000 activists and supporters of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign met in Chicago to discuss the future of the movement. Taking this 'People’s Summit' as his starting point, activist and writer Ethan Young advocates for a strong left and a 'united front' with other progressives in order to shake up the system: 'The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid phenomena appear.'



LeftStreamed: Class Struggles, TO

June 26, 2016

A panel of activists and historians (Joan Sangster, Bryan Palmer and Gaetan Heroux) on the struggles of women and the poor in the city's history. Recorded in Toronto 9 June 2016.



What's New: How Severe Is Venezuela's Crisis?

by Gabriel Hetland | June 25, 2016

According to The New York Times, Venezuela is 'a country that is in a state of total collapse,' with shuttered government offices, widespread hunger, and failing hospitals that resemble 'hell on earth.' There is reportedly 'often little traffic in Caracas simply because so few people, either for lack of money or work, are going out.'

: NCS People’s University

NCS People’s University
This summer at the World Social Forum (WSF) Montreal will host tens of thousands of people and hundreds of groups and movements from around the world who are involved in struggles for justice and changing the world... and the People’s University of the Nouveaux Cahiers du socialisme (NCS) will be there!

The NCS People’s University grows out of the joint efforts of some 40 people active in trade unions, in feminist, environmental and other social movements, and in the academic world in Quebec. It is a collective intellectual and political endeavour aimed at supporting efforts to build a strong movement for radical change. The People’s University is neither academic nor bookish in its approach. We believe that knowledge and political capacities are enriched by the interplay of theory and practice grounded in the fight to change the world.

By registering for the World Social Forum you are also registering for the NCS’ People’s University. You can register online at fsm2016.org/en/participer/sinscrire
