Bullet #1366: Toronto Mayor’s Housing Policies Costs Lives

by Yogi Acharya | February 7, 2017

Eighty people have died in the last two years as a direct result of homelessness in Toronto. That's one homeless person dying every 10 days. In 1985, people fighting homelessness started keeping track of these senseless, and entirely preventable deaths. Since that time, they've recorded over 800 deaths - lives sacrificed in service of a perverse economic logic that demands ever more cuts from the destitute and grants ever more comforts to the rich.



Bullet #1365: How Postal Workers Removed the Staples

by Jamie Partridge | February 6, 2017

'We Won! The U.S. Postal Service and Staples deal is over!' proclaimed the headline on the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) website. A three-year battle against the outsourcing of living-wage, union postal jobs to the low-wage, nonunion Staples ended January 5 when USPS management informed the APWU that the 'approved shipper' program in Staples Office Supply stores will be shut down by the end of February 2017.

What's New: What does it mean to smash the state? This is our great challenge.

Leo Panitch | February 4, 2017

In terms of the irrationality, chaos and inequality of capitalism, which becomes more irrational, more chaotic, more unequal with every passing hour, it’s hard to be a humane person and not to be a socialist. But there is also a way to answer this question related to one’s personal formation. I come from a working class community in Canada, who’s parents where socialists, so, in a sense, am a socialist almost by birth.



Books: The Palestinian state never had a chance

review by Antony Loewenstein | February 4, 2017

The Israeli media barely covers Palestine. Although many local, corporate outlets have 'Arab affairs' correspondents, a faintly colonial position that reeks of paternalism, 99.9 percent of Jewish journalists live in Israel proper (or the occupied, Palestinian territories) and barely spend any serious time in Palestine (except when serving in the IDF). The lack of Palestinian perspectives is striking considering the geographic closeness of the two peoples.



What's New: A Better World in Birth

by Karin Baker | February 3, 2017

I read plenty of articles, short and long, on all sorts of topics, but -- I hesitate to mention this to ATC readers -- I rarely read full length nonfiction books. But those by Michael A. Lebowitz, including his recent The Socialist Imperative: From Gotha to Now, have been an easy exception. It is a pleasure and a relief to read theory that has such practical application to the questions socialists must address in our work to transform the world.



What's New: It Can Happen Here

by David M. Kotz | February 3, 2017

On November 8 the rise of a right-wing nationalist regime in the United States became a realistic possibility, if not now then in the coming years. Such regimes stress nationalist and patriotic themes, play upon and intensify fear of minority ethnicities and/or religions and/or other long-oppressed groups, promise to resolve festering economic problems of ordinary people, and direct the blame for such problems at a convenient scapegoat such as foreigners or immigrants rather than the real causes.

Bus Tour: Toxic Toronto

Toxic Toronto
PDAC, the largest gathering in the world for the global mineral industry, begins on March 5. Every year, over 25,000 people descend on the city of Toronto for this 85-year-old trade show and convention. Some have called PDAC the "Superbowl" or the "Oscars" of the extraction industry. But why does it happen here? What is it about Toronto that makes this city PDAC's perfect home? It's certainly no accident.

Join us on a bus tour through the "belly of the beast" to untangle the secret webs of power and money that connect our city to some of the most harmful and toxic mining and extractive projects around the world.
