LeftStreamed: Palestine 101: Not That Complicated

December 10, 2017

Together We Rise includes 101 resources on Palestine, skill-building tools, outlines how U.S. and Israeli colonialism and racism are connected, and what we can learn from Palestinian, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other freedom struggles. Many people are held back from taking a stand on the issue of Palestine/Israel by the common misconception that it is 'complicated.' Here, we explain the steady continuation of the more than 100 year old settler colonial project that is Zionism.



What's New: All Power to the Soviets – A slogan that launched a revolution

by John Riddell | December 9, 2017

We’re going to revisit the Russian revolution by telling the story of a slogan that shaped its outcome, 'All power to the soviets.' Before beginning, I want to acknowledge my debt to recent historical writing on this period by Lars Lih, Eric Blanc, China Miéville, and Paul Le Blanc. Thanks also to Doug Williams, my videographer, and Lars for originating the idea of tracing the 'biography' of this slogan. And so let us go back to Russia a little more than 100 years ago, to a gray and hungry Petrograd still locked in winter, where people’s hearts were suddenly full of hope.

Bullet #1522: Election 2018: a Battle Over #Fightfor15

by Quinton Ascah | December 8, 2017

The 2018 Ontario provincial election will be fought over many issues. Liberal Kathleen Wynne’s unpopularity as Premier, Progressive Conservative Party Leader Patrick Brown’s flip-flopping on major issues, the election of Donald Trump in the United States and subsequent re-evaluation of NAFTA are all certainly to come up in coverage and debates. However, one of the biggest issues that will be fought next year is a struggle that activists have been working on for years, and one which opponents believe could derail Ontario’s entire economy: Bill 148. The minimum wage hike, and other labour reforms in the Bill, may be the most controversial public policy issue in Ontario right now.



What's New: Less Than Half of All Canadians Aged 25-54 Now Have Full-Time, Year-Round Jobs

| December 7, 2017

New census data from Statistics Canada suggests the quality of Canadian jobs continues to fall while precarious work continues to rise. Most disturbingly, StatCan reports less than half of all Canadian workers (49.8%) between the ages of 25 and 54 worked full-time, full-year jobs in 2015. According to StatCan, 'the period from 2005 to 2015 saw an overall shift from full-time, full-year employment to part-time or part-year work.'



What's New: Preparing a Public Pathway

by Sean Sweeney and John Treat | December 7, 2017

Why, in a world awash with 'idle capital' and in desperate need for a just energy transition to a renewables-based system, are global investment levels in renewable energy so out of sync with climate targets? In the previous TUED Working Paper #9, Energy Transition: Are We Winning?, we raised in passing the serious investment deficit in renewable energy, in the context of a broader examination of overall trends with the global energy system and greenhouse gas emissions. In this paper, we have taken on the investment question directly and in detail.



Bullet #1521: Where to Begin? Lessons from the Fight for $15 Beyond North America

Jonathan Rosenblum interviewed by Yuri Lobunov | December 6, 2017

Big ideas sometimes start small. Fast food workers in New York City were the first workers to raise the banner demanding '$15 and a Union.' In late November, 2012, 200 fast-food workers in midtown Manhattan took to the streets for a one-day walkout to demand a $15/hour minimum wage - more than double the national minimum - and union recognition. For a city of 8 million people, it was a small protest, but for low-wage workers around the country, this bold call for $15 and union recognition pressed beyond the limits of their imaginations.
