What's New: Jeremy Corbyn’s 10 pledges to transform Britain

| May 5, 2017

Labour’s aim is to rebuild and transform Britain, for the many not the few. These ten pledges set out the framework for what Labour will campaign for - and what a Labour government will do. 1. Full Employment; 2. A Secure homes guarantee; 3. Security at work; 4. Secure NHS and social care; 5. National education service; 6. Action to secure our environment...

Bullet #1408: Zionist Colonization is Not ‘Exceptional’: A Marxist Viewpoint

by Tikva Honig-Parnass | May 4, 2017

This article aims to challenge the rather widely accepted claim that the nature of Zionist settler colonization is exceptional and even 'defies appeal to any precedent that can usefully be invoked as to its evolution and eventual revolution.' My challenge will focus on Moshé Machover's 2016 article, 'The decolonization of Palestine' which is the third of a series of three articles published in Weekly Worker. It deals with the typology of colonial projects and its implication upon identifying Zionist colonization and the struggle for its downfall.

What's New: Why this scientist is marching

by Rebekah Ward | May 4, 2017

'Science is real' and 'Objective reality exists' read the signs that covered Jessie Square in San Francisco last December. 'Immigrants make science great' read some at Boston's Copley Square in February. An unlikely sector of the populace has begun to respond to the threat that the Trump agenda represents. Earth Day, April 22, has been called as a day of action for all of us who want to defend academic freedom, public health and the human habitability of the planet itself.

What's New: Jobs for Climate and Justice: A Worker Alternative to the Trump Agenda

| May 3, 2017

We are in a critical political moment. The impacts of climate change are increasingly severe, taking a toll on our health, environment and our economies. In the midst of this growing crisis, the United States now has a President and Congressional leadership that simultaneously attack climate science and aim to comprehensively roll back climate protection measures and the rights of workers to organize.

Bullet #1407: Convenient Untruths About 'Human Nature'

by Judith Deutsch | May 3, 2017

At this most critical of times, do current erroneous assumptions about human nature play a role at a deep level in the prevalent responses to catastrophes? Apropos, Raymond Williams summarized Antonio Gramsci's view of hegemony as a 'central system of practices, meanings and values saturating the consciousness of a society at a much deeper level than ordinary notions of ideology.' There are new and old normals and it is hard to know where public knowledge is on this. Movies from similar times evoked normal, even beautiful scenes from daily life, of intimacy and love, but with ordinary life shadowed by foreboding threats.

What's New: This Is What’s Really Behind North Korea’s Nuclear Provocations

by Bruce Cumings | May 2, 2017

Donald Trump was having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on February 11 when a message arrived mid-meal, courtesy of Pyongyang: North Korea had just tested a new, solid-fuel, intermediate-range ballistic missile, fired from a mobile--and therefore hard-to-detect--launcher. The president pulled out his 1990s flip-phone and discussed this event in front of the various people sitting within earshot.

Bullet #1406: 'Things are serious': Update on the French Presidential Election

by Stefan Kipfer | May 2, 2017

'C'est grave,' (things are serious) said the monsieur who sells me the papers every morning. A resident of Mantes-la-Jolie (a working class town at the western edge of the Paris region), he laments a lack of clarity on the dangers of the Front National (FN) not only among colleagues and neighbours but also parties and politicians. The situation in France is indeed serious. A week before the second-round vote, Marine Le Pen has made progress in the polls but still trails Emmanuel Macron by a margin of about 18 per cent.

Art vs Alt: How We Challenge the Right

How We Challenge the Right
Art vs Alt is a day of conversations and a platform for presentations of work by concerned artists, a day to come together to work out how to collectively confront the dramatic rise of the right.

Culture has always been a major part of left currency and in the present crisis it may be our most important currency. Let’s move it forward. Let’s ask what we should be doing.

The conference is open to anyone interested in the culture and politics of the left. Discussions and plenaries on subjects chosen by participants will be held throughout the day. Artists are also invited to give a 3-minute presentation of their work during four half-hour segments scheduled throughout the afternoon. Come and participate in the presentations and the conversation.

International Conference: Marx's Capital after 150 Years

Marx's Capital after 150 Years
Critique and Alternative to Capitalism

After the eruption of the international financial crisis in 2008, Marx's Capital received renewed academic and popular attention. Leading newspapers throughout the world discussed again the contemporary relevance of its pages. Faced with a deep new crisis of capitalism, many are now looking to an author who in the past was often wrongly associated with the "actually existing socialism"; and who was too hastily dismissed after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

For many scholars today, Marx's analyses are arguably resonating even more strongly than they did in his own time. This international conference will bring together several world-renowned sociologists, political theorists, economists, and philosophers, from diverse fields and more than 10 countries with the aim of offering diverse scholarly perspectives and critical insights into the principal contradictions of contemporary capitalism and, in so doing, point to alternative economic and social models.
