Bullet #1336: South Korean Protests Growing

| December 6, 2016

For the sixth straight weekend, hundreds of thousands of Koreans came out in Seoul (and with other Korean cities estimates approaching 2 million people on the streets) to demand the resignation of President Park Geun-hye. These are the largest demonstrations in South Korea since the pro-democracy movement of the 1980s.



What's New: Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s Statement on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Decision to Not Grant Easement

| December 5, 2016

Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it will not be granting the easement to cross Lake Oahe for the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. Instead, the Corps will be undertaking an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternative routes. We wholeheartedly support the decision of the administration and commend with the utmost gratitude the courage it took on the part of President Obama, the Army Corps, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to take steps to correct the course of history and to do the right thing.



What's New: The victory at Standing Rock could mark a turning point

by Bill McKibben | December 5, 2016

The news that the U.S. federal government has refused to issue the permit needed to run a pipeline under the Missouri river means many things - including that indigenous activists have won a smashing victory, one that shows what nonviolent unity can accomplish. From the start, this has been an against-the-odds battle. But that opposition finally did arise, and it centered on the last place the pipeline would have to cross: the confluence of the Missouri and the Cannonball rivers.



LeftStreamed: The Case of Hassan Diab

December 4, 2016

This is a 3-part podcast series on the case of Hassan Diab, a Lebanese-Canadian sociology professor extradited from Canada and currently in a French jail, accused of a bombing that happened in Paris in 1980. The series was produced by Justin Podur.



What's New: Jewish group disturbed by the passing of anti-BDS motion

| December 3, 2016

Independent Jewish Voices Canada (IJV) is deeply concerned and disturbed by the passage of the private members motion 36 against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The motion passed despite opposition from the Ontario New Democratic Party (ONDP). Several civil society organizations expressed their opposition to the motion, including CUPE Ontario, the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, the Israeli organization Boycott from Within and dozens of other groups.



What's New: The Fierce Debate Over Castro's Legacy

by John Wight | December 3, 2016

Fidel Castro’s death, at 90, has sparked a fierce debate in the West over his legacy. I specifically mention the West as elsewhere there is no debate: Castro has rightfully been lauded as one of history’s great emancipators, a man who led a revolution that succeeded in throwing off the yoke of U.S. imperialism.



What's New: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

by Brad Hornick | December 2, 2016

The fresh new face Canada showed the world at the Paris COP21 climate meetings held out hope for many Canadian climate activists that a national course change was in the works. So far, Trudeau has not updated Canada's environmental assessment process as promised. The Liberals have sponsored a biased ministerial panel to assess both the Trans Mountain and Energy East pipeline expansions.

Book launch: Toronto's Poor

Toronto's Poor
Join Bryan D. Palmer and Gaétan Héroux for the launch of Toronto’s Poor: A Rebellious History.

Toronto’s Poor reveals the long and too often forgotten history of poor people’s resistance. It details how the homeless, the unemployed, and the destitute have struggled to survive and secure food and shelter in the wake of the many panics, downturns, recessions, and depressions that punctuate the years from the 1830s to the present. It is about men, women, and children relegated to lives of desperation by an uncaring system, and how they have refused to be defeated. In that refusal, and in winning better conditions for themselves, Toronto’s poor create the possibility of a new kind of society, one ordered not by acquisition and individual advance, but by appreciations of collective rights and responsibilities.
