What's New: What a SYRIZA government will do

| January 1, 2015

This is the governmental program of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) announced by Alexis Tsipras at the Thessaloniki International Fair, September 15, 2014. According to the latest opinion poll, SYRIZA is at 36.5%, with a seven percentage point lead over the conservative New Democracy. The current contest for the presidency of Greece looks likely to lead to a new parliamentary election.

What's New: Asset recycling: privatization coming to a community near you

| December 31, 2014

A new scheme called Asset recycling, which has been gaining some traction in conservative circles around the globe, has made its way to Canadian shores. Though promoted as a way for governments to pay for new infrastructure without raising taxes, it's in reality just another ploy in which hard working Canadians, like you, fork out the money, while the wealthy few reap the benefits.

Bullet #1063: After Chavez: The Maduro Government And The 'Economic War' in Venezuela

by Steve Ellner | December 30, 2014

Nearly two years after the death of Hugo Chávez, the key question that many on the left are debating, in Venezuela and elsewhere, is whether his successors have been true to his legacy, or whether the 'revolutionary process' initiated more than a decade ago has now stalled or even been thrown into reverse.

What's New: The amazing things we achieved together in 2014

| December 29, 2014

For Palestinians and people of conscience everywhere, 2014 will be remembered as the year in which Israel carried out its bloodiest ever massacre of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza strip. 2014 was also a year of resistance that saw continued resistance and unprecedented international solidarity with Palestine and huge steps forward for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

What's New: The challenge of reconciling Donbas and the Euromaidan movement in Ukraine

by Halyna Mokrushyna | December 27, 2014

On December 4 in Ottawa, academics, researchers and a former Canadian diplomat gathered to discuss the current crisis and civil war in Eastern Ukraine and the larger geopolitical context of the Ukrainian crisis. They concluded that reconciliation in Ukraine, if it ever happens, will be a very difficult and long process. The following is an account of the half-day seminar.

What's New: Workerism Beyond Fordism: On the Lineage of Italian Workerism

by Sergio Bologna | December 26, 2014

The system of thought that has come to be called Italian workerism is not an organic system. Nor is it contained in any fundamental text, any sort of Bible. It is instead composed of different theoretical contributions from some militant intellectuals who founded the journals Quaderni Rossi and Classe Operaia. Raniero Panzieri, Mario Tronti, Toni Negri and Romano Alquati are the ones who laid the foundations of the system.

twinkle starForum: Environmental Justice, the Tar Sands, and Indigenous Rights

Environmental Justice, the Tar Sands, and Indigenous Rights
Tar Sands extraction projects, located primarily in Treaty 6 and 8, have radically damaged and contaminated a huge area of land in so-called Alberta, and poisoned the Athabasca watershed. As a result of the toxic operations, some Indigenous communities are experiencing unusually high rates of rare cancers and other illnesses. Traditional ways of life are also at risk as hunting, fishing, and collecting medicinal plants is becoming more difficult in polluted waters and lands.

These lands are the traditional territories of a number of Indigenous Nations whose right to hunt, fish, and live are protected by Treaties, which are currently being violated.

* Heather Milton Lightening, Indigenous Tar Sands Campaign
* Keith Stewart, Climate and Energy Campaign Coordinator, Greenpeace Canada
* Anna Zalik, Professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University

Recommended reading: A Line in the Tar Sands.

This is the second talk in the series: Capitalism vs. Ecology: We Need to Change Everything! Discussion series on ecology, economy, and social justice. Sponsored by: Centre for Social Justice, Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly, Socialist Project. | Facebook event
