What's New: How Immigrants Built the American Left -- And Can Build It Again

by Nelson Lichtenstein | March 24, 2017

Last Thursday’s 'Day Without Immigrants' work stoppages, which closed hundreds of restaurants, grocery stores, garages, retail shops, and other businesses, offered a taste of the capacity for militant action wielded by immigrant America. Led in many cities by Latino activists calling for a 'huelga general,' the February 16 coast-to-coast walkouts augur well for an even larger set of strikes and demonstrations, including a March 8 Day Without a Woman.



Bullet #1387: Women Rise Up Against Gender Violence in the Caribbean

by Justin Podur interviews Joan Joy Grant Cummings | March 23, 2017

On March 11, survivors of violence against women and their allies and supporters held marches in six Caribbean countries. Started by two Barbadian women, Ronelle King and Allyson Benn, the movement had the hashtag #LifeInLeggings. In Jamaica, one of the groups marching was the Tambourine Army, a movement of activists dedicated to eradicating sexual violence against women and girls. Some of the Tambourine Army are survivors themselves of sexual violence.



What's New: Saskatchewan Speaks: Policy Recommendations for Transformational Change

by SaskForward | March 22, 2017

In December, SaskForward began an online public consultation process that asked people across the province to answer the question, 'What ‘transformational change’ would you introduce to make Saskatchewan a happier, healthier, and more prosperous place for all?' After receiving over one hundred submissions from individuals and organizations and hosting a policy summit and discussion with over 120 participants, SaskForward releases this report which puts forward a series of policy recommendations based on the ideas and suggestions Saskatchewan people shared with us.



Bullet #1386: Building Solidarity through Standing Up for Truth

by Caglar Dolek and Gulden Ozcan | March 22, 2017

The fate of the neoliberal Islamist project of authoritarian restoration in Turkey will be determined by an upcoming referendum on April 16 of this year. The referendum will be held under the conditions of a state of emergency in effect since the July 15 coup attempt last year. The regime's use of the putsch attempt to suppress all forms of dissent has quickly evolved into an overriding choice to make the state of emergency the permanent form of governance in Turkey. In this sense, the April 16 plebiscite on constitutional changes marks a defining stage in the politics of violent polarization and oppression under way for more than a decade.



What's New: Dark history of Canada's First Nations pass system uncovered in documentary

by Stephanie Cram | March 21, 2017

Very little is known about the pass system. It was a troubling piece of Canadian policy, put in place in 1885 to control the movements of First Nation people, and enforced until the 1940s. It required all First Nation people living on reserve to get written permission from an Indian agent when they needed to leave their community If caught without a pass, they were either incarcerated or returned to the reserve.



What's New: Trudeau backs C-23, armed US border guards in Canada

by Brent Patterson | March 21, 2017

The Trudeau government is moving forward with C-23, a controversial pre-clearance border security bill. CBC reports, 'U.S. border guards would get new powers to question, search and even detain Canadian citizens on Canadian soil under a bill proposed by the Liberal government. The bill would enshrine in law a reciprocal agreement for customs and immigration pre-clearance signed by the governments of Stephen Harper and Barack Obama in March 2015.'



What's New: We need popular participation, not populism

by Hilary Wainwright | March 21, 2017

The struggle for the vote for workers and for women was resisted at every stage, and when universal suffrage was finally won, every effort was made to blunt and control its impact through institutional devices. These included second chambers, disproportional electoral systems, executive powers and, most importantly, a rigid separation of politics from economics.

Conversation Circle: Toronto’s Poor, A Rebellious History

Toronto’s Poor, A Rebellious History a wide-ranging conversation with the co-author Gaetan Heroux (with Dr. Bryan Palmer) exploring the history and the profile of poverty in Toronto and the struggles against it.

Given the current economic uncertainty and hard times that people living on the margins and the young people are facing, we are delighted to have the chance to share Gaetan and Bryan’s perspectives discussed in their remarkable book, documenting and demystifying poverty in Toronto. Gaetan and Beric German, Co-founder of Toronto Disaster Relief Committee, will lead the conversation and share their respective knowledge and years of anti-poverty grassroots organizing experiences across the city.

Monthly thematic Conversation Circles are organized by volunteer labour, supported by the Seeds of Hope Foundation, to generate discussion on issues of interest to wider Danforth neighbourhood.
