Bullet #1043: Scotland's Referendum: Some lessons for Quebec... and Canada

by Richard Fidler | October 3, 2014

Superficially, the 55-45 victory of the No forces in Scotland's referendum September 18 was a clear rejection of independence. The Yes forces won a majority only in the four poorest and most deprived of the nation's 32 local divisions, although a class breakdown of the vote would show a majority of the working-class voted for independence.

What's New: Who has the right to this city?

by Derrick O'Keefe | October 2, 2014

In the 2008 municipal election, Gregor Robertson swept into the Mayor's office on a promise to eliminate homelessness in Vancouver. The issue was the centrepiece of his campaign, even though the target date for fulfilling the promise was 2015, seven years away. Now, with 2015 almost upon us, the homeless count is way up.

What's New: ANC joins call for complete boycott of Israel

| October 2, 2014

African National Congress members and leaders should not travel to Israel as the party is in solidarity with the people of Palestine, ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said. "(We are) joining the call for (a) cultural, academic and education boycott of Israel, including travel bans for members and leaders of the ANC, the alliance, members of Cabinet, Members of Parliament and government officials."

What's New: Russians rally against Moscow role in Ukraine

| October 2, 2014

Thousands of Russians have rallied in Moscow in protest against the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, in the first major anti-war rally since the standoff between Kiev and pro-Russian rebels started last year. Russian and Ukrainian flags were seen flying in the crowd, as banners read "We are together", "Putin, I'm sick of your lies" and "I don't want a war with Ukraine."

Bullet #1042: Students Unfurl the 'Umbrella Revolution' in Hong Kong

by Sean Starrs | October 1, 2014

The largest student demonstrations and occupations in Hong Kong's history is currently unfurling -- what is increasingly being called the 'Umbrella Revolution' in reference to the sea of umbrellas being used as cover against both pepper-spraying riot police and the rays of the sun (the latter a common practice in Northeast Asia).

What's New: TUC commits to step up the campaign for a free Palestine

| October 1, 2014

In a statement from its General Council, the TUC condemns the "collective punishment of the people of Gaza," and describes Israel's latest land grab in the West Bank as "a shocking provocation." The strongly worded statement, which was passed almost unanimously today, says the response of the UK government, the EU and the UN to Israel's 2014 attack on Gaza has been "unacceptable."

What's New: Solidarity with pro-democracy protests in HongKong

| September 30, 2014

CUPE expresses our support for the protests initiated by students and supported by workers in Hong Kong. We draw tremendous inspiration from activists who are mobilizing to demand a voice in their country. We offer them our solidarity as they courageously stand up in the face of injustice and the violent suppression of their rights.

Bullet #1041: Climate Convergence Moves Us Forward, But Challenges Us to Create a Strategy

by Dan La Botz | September 30, 2014

The Global Climate Convergence with its more than one hundred workshops, its large plenary sessions, and its miles-long mass march of more than 300,000 people, the largest climate protest in American history, represents a turning point for the environmental movement.
