Bullet #1292: Lessons of the 2015 CUPE Local 3903 Strike

by Kyle Bailey | August 12, 2016

It has now been over one year since the end of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 3903 strike at York University in March 2015. This strike began when 3,700 teaching assistants, contract faculty, graduate assistants and research assistants voted to walk the picket lines. The decision came just days after a historic strike vote by 6,000 teaching assistants and other student academic staff in CUPE 3902 Unit 1 at the University of Toronto.

Bullet #1291: Censorship is Back in Fashion in Brazil

by Sabrina Fernandes | August 11, 2016

Lately, it's been common to say that the 'right has come out of the closet' in Brazil. More precisely, the authoritarian, fascist right, has done so and very publicly for that matter. The revolutionary potential of June 2013, even if convoluted and smeared by depoliticization, held enough of a threat to require immediate hegemonic renewal, especially at the ideological level.

What's New: Chinese sweatshops: they were the future, once

by Owen Tudor | August 10, 2016

Once it was David Cameron’s jibe at Tony Blair. Then he used it self-deprecatingly to bid farewell to the Commons after the referendum. But it reflects an iron law that what was once seen as the future soon becomes the past. And, Chinese trade unionists and labour rights activists have been telling UK trade unions today, the same happens in economics.

What's New: Worse Than KeystoneXL? TransCanada's Terrifying 'Plan B'

by Deirdre Fulton | August 10, 2016

The pipeline giant TransCanada, stymied in its attempt to drive Keystone XL through America's heartland, is facing renewed opposition to its 'new and equally misguided proposal' to build the Energy East pipeline across Canada and ship tar sands oil via tankers along the U.S. East Coast to refineries in the Gulf of Mexico.

What's New: The Rise of Morena

by Simon Schatzberg | August 10, 2016

A new electoral force is capturing the imagination of the Mexican left: the National Regeneration Movement (Morena). Morena’s rise is generating equal parts enthusiasm and skepticism and generating debates about incrementalism and the role of social movements in elections. Many leftists hope that Morena will be the force to finally bring the Left to power in Mexico, while others remain skeptical of Morena and of electoral campaigns in general.

What's New: Calgary Transit to introduce sliding scale for low-income passes

by Helen Pike | August 9, 2016

What can some low-income Calgarians do with $5.15? They can ride Calgary Transit for a month knowing they’ll get from point A to B without having to pinch pennies. On Monday, councillors voted to reach deep into city coffers and expand the lower-income pass offering by adopting a 'banded' system. This will change the current $44 pass to one that's price dependant on income, according to the low income cut-off scale. This will deepen the current discount for pass holders up to 95 per cent based on their income for 2017. The item was carried unanimously, and followed by a raucous applause.
