review by Carl J. Griffin | July 4, 2014
Since 2011 swathes of protest, rebellion, and rioting have covered the globe. Challenging us to consider arson attacks against empty buildings, Black Bloc streetfighting tactics and industrial sabotage, amongst an array of other militant action, Stephen D'Arcy aims to show a crucial contrast between democratic and undemocratic action, rather than violence and non-violence.

The last decade in Canada has seen the strengthening of the instruments of repression of the Canadian State such that we can now begin to describe and analyze the neoliberal containment state as a specific set of policies and institutions. These policies and institutions are aimed at containing the growing social 'disorder' and emerging resistance that have resulted from 30 years of the neoliberal economic order.

Books: Unions Matter
review by Andrew Jackson | July 3, 2014
This excellent book on why unions and a strong labour movement are essential building blocks of a sound economy and of a just and democratic society deserves to be widely circulated. It is accessible to individual labour activists who wish to deepen their understanding of the role of unions -- both inside and outside the workplace -- and should be widely adopted for use in post-secondary labour studies courses and union educational programs.

|: Protest in Solidarity with Gaza|
Even before the arrival of the ground assault on Thursday, the casualties have been growing by the hour, with Israeli strikes on civilian homes, clearly-marked press vehicles, hospitals and homes for the elderly and people with disabilities.
There is nowhere for people in Gaza to hide. The cruel blockade imposed on Gaza denies them medical supplies necessary to save lives.
With repeated attacks on helpless civilian targets, with the number of dead Palestinian women, children and elderly growing rapidly, this aggression can only be called one thing: a massacre.
Join us to protest this ongoing massacre and to raise awareness about the atrocities being committed to the people of Palestine which are not being covered by the biased media.
Organized by the Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians, Independent Jewish Voices and community allies.
