On July 14 a dozen or so activists staged an occupation of a worksite in Toronto associated with Enbridge's Line 9, an oil pipeline that runs across the Province of Ontario.

Bullet #1012: The Outsize (un)Importance of the Tar Sands
by Michal Rozworski | July 20, 2014
It's easy to overestimate the importance of the tar sands to the Canadian economy. Tar sands and their pipelines are, after all, hailed by the ruling Conservatives, sections of the business press and the ever-present oil lobby as this young century's 'nation-building' project.
What's New: Government of India must stand up for Palestine
| July 19, 2014
The murderous attack of Israel on Gaza that began on 3 July is like all Israel's attacks on Palestine without justification and lacking in proportion. There is no evidence that the three Israeli teenagers who went missing on 12 June and whose bodies were found on 30 June were killed by Hamas.
