What's New: The challenge of Sanders and Corbyn to the extreme centre

| August 29, 2015

Over the past year, unlikely challengers have emerged to the dominant politics of the center-left in both the U.S. and the UK. Jeremy Corbyn is looking increasingly poised to win the leadership of the UK Labour Party next month. Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic, Bernie Sanders keeps rising in the polls, drawing large crowds and making Hillary Clinton's coronation as Democratic presidential candidate a bit uncertain.



What's New: The Canadian War on Science

by James O'Grady | August 28, 2015

This is a brief chronology of the current Conservative Canadian government’s long campaign to undermine evidence-based scientific, environmental and technical decision-making. It is a government that is beholden to big business, particularly big oil, and that makes every attempt to shape public policy to that end. It is a government that fundamentally doesn’t believe in science. It is a government that is more interested in keeping its corporate masters happy than in protecting the environment.



What's New: Palestinian liberation is key matter of our time

| August 28, 2015

More than 1,000 Black activists, artists, scholars, students and organizations have released this statement reaffirming their “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and commitment to the liberation of Palestine’s land and people.” The list of signatories includes scholar-activists Angela Davis and Cornel West, political prisoners Mumia Abu-Jamal and Sundiata Acoli, rappers Talib Kweli, Boots Riley and Jasiri X and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.



What's New: The case for a $15 minimum wage the NDP should make

by Michal Rozworski | August 28, 2015

Of all of the NDP's campaign promises so far, one of the simplest has gotten the most press: the $15 minimum wage for workers in federally regulated sectors. This campaign plank should be an easy sell for the NDP, yet Conservative and Liberal attacks have managed to undermine it. The way it's been presented has left it open to attack, but this needn't be so.



What's New: Pittsburghers for Public Transit

| August 27, 2015

Pittsburghers for Public Transit is a grassroots organization of transit riders, workers, and residents working together to defend and expand public transit in our region. Founded in 2010, we have raised consciousness about the importance and value of public mass transit -- providing education about the nature of the funding crisis, organizing rallies and demonstrations, and mobilizing thousands of people to exert the pressure required to pass the state transportation bill.



What's New: New Scottish left party named as RISE

by Tom Gordon | August 27, 2015

The grassroots anti-austerity movement, anchored around the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) and the Scottish Left Project (SLP), has been taking shape over the last eight months under the nickname the Scottish Syriza. However it will be be formally launched as RISE, which stands for Respect, Independence, Socialism and Environmentalism, in Glasgow.



What's New: Saluting Marcus Garvey: One of The World’s Greatest Black Leaders

| August 26, 2015

The Right Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jamaica's first National Hero, once leader of the largest organized mass movement of African people, the man who inspired every black freedom fighter in the twentieth century, both in Africa and the Americas. Given the anxiety in some quarters about the African heritage in Jamaica, it is truly remarkable that the political elite had the good sense to recognise Garvey’s heroic stature and honour him accordingly.

Forum: Chris Hedges: The Great Unraveling

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about "The Great Unraveling."

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy Movement. In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians and literary figures, he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges’ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.

The event is organized by Canadian Dimension magazine with support from Centre for Social Justice | www.eventbrite.ca | Facebook event
