What's New: Pro-gas fracking government turfed in New Brunswick election

by Roger Annis | October 4, 2014

What's New: 50 Canadian climate researchers speak out in support of the People's Climate March

| October 3, 2014

The Canadian government is hell-bent on exploiting the Alberta tar sands to the fullest extent possible, even at the expense of the global climate. Canada simply cannot meet its carbon pollution reduction pledges if it continues to expand tar sands operations. While the American government has finally begun to take the threat of climate change seriously and do something about it, the Canadian government has merely played lip service to the problem.

Bullet #1043: Scotland's Referendum: Some lessons for Quebec... and Canada

by Richard Fidler | October 3, 2014

Superficially, the 55-45 victory of the No forces in Scotland's referendum September 18 was a clear rejection of independence. The Yes forces won a majority only in the four poorest and most deprived of the nation's 32 local divisions, although a class breakdown of the vote would show a majority of the working-class voted for independence.

What's New: Who has the right to this city?

by Derrick O'Keefe | October 2, 2014

In the 2008 municipal election, Gregor Robertson swept into the Mayor's office on a promise to eliminate homelessness in Vancouver. The issue was the centrepiece of his campaign, even though the target date for fulfilling the promise was 2015, seven years away. Now, with 2015 almost upon us, the homeless count is way up.

Thousands of Russians have rallied in Moscow in protest against the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, in the first major anti-war rally since the standoff between Kiev and pro-Russian rebels started last year.

Bullet #1042: Students Unfurl the 'Umbrella Revolution' in Hong Kong

by Sean Starrs | October 1, 2014

The largest student demonstrations and occupations in Hong Kong's history is currently unfurling -- what is increasingly being called the 'Umbrella Revolution' in reference to the sea of umbrellas being used as cover against both pepper-spraying riot police and the rays of the sun (the latter a common practice in Northeast Asia).

He is the deputy director of the Center for Social and Labor Research, a member of the editorial board of Commons: Journal for Social Criticism and LeftEast web-magazine, and a teacher at the Department of Sociology in the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.
