What's New: New Ambassador Modernizes Canada's Hidden Agenda in Venezuela

by Gerard Di Trolio | March 31, 2014

Amidst headlines dominated by the situation in Ukraine, this bit of news slipped by almost unnoticed at the end of February; Ben Rowswell replaced Paul Gibbard as Canadian ambassador to Venezuela, as mandated by Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird. But a quick look into the appointee's background brings special significance to his promotion, especially as opposition protests escalate in Venezuela.

Bullet #961: Some Basic Thoughts on Québec and Anti-Imperialist Strategy

by Dan Freeman-Maloy | March 31, 2014

The Harper government has dragged Canadian politics to a point where intelligent criticism is difficult. Things are almost too obviously bad. On an international stage, it was enough to see the smug chuckles that Binyamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman exchanged as Harper delivered his speech to Israeli parliament, urging Israel's leadership to stay the course toward regional wars.

What's New: The Surrender of America's Liberals

| March 30, 2014

Political scientist Adolph Reed Jr. talks with Bill Moyers about his new article in the March issue of Harper's Magazine -- a challenge to America's progressives provocatively titled, "Nothing Left: The Long, Slow Surrender of American Liberals."

LeftStreamed: Left Alternatives to Social Democracy

Bullet #960: The Deceptive Use of the Phrase "Peaceful Protests" in Venezuela

by Steve Ellner | March 29, 2014

The Venezuelan opposition and much of the media use the term 'peaceful protests' to distinguish gatherings of protesting students and other young people from the more violent actions including vandalism and shootings carried out by those outside of the university community.

Books: Economics of The 1%: How Mainstream Economics

review by Cyrus Bina | March 28, 2014

Voltaire, a well-known social critic and philosopher of the eighteenth century, who reportedly had also a cordial meeting with Adam Smith, once said "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord! make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."

Bullet #959: Hassan Husseini's CLC Challenge

by Cindy McCallum Miller | March 28, 2014

This year's Canadian Labour Congress convention might be worth attending after all. With a presidential challenge in the air, labour leaders will have to trade in their silk shirts for a pair of overalls to show they still are connected to the working-class in order to seek the support of delegates.
