Books: The Socialist Imperative
review by Doug Enaa Greene | August 15, 2015
Those who open Michael Lebowitz's new book, The Socialist Imperative, will find something far different and refreshing than the old apologetic Soviet manuals on the smooth workings of a planned economy. What they will discover is a collection of writings inspired by Lebowitz's lifetime of activism and profound solidarity with the oppressed and exploited under capitalism and his revolutionary vision of how to build a socialist alternative.
by Black Labor Collaborative | August 14, 2015
A new 35-page white paper, "A Future for Workers: A Contribution From Black Labor," was released by the Black Labor Collaborative, a group of influential African American leaders from major labour organizations who offer a progressive critique and agenda to frame discussions about the direction of the American labour movement. This is a seismic development, because it is the first time representatives of 2.1 million black trade unionists have published a comprehensive outlook on organized labour.
Bullet #1153: A New Union Movement and Anti-Racism
Michael Yates | August 14, 2015
In terms of the willingness of labour leaders -- AFL-CIO officials and those at the top of individual unions -- to engage in class-struggle unionism, the answer is no, the situation today is similar to that in 2009. These people often talk a good game, but their actions belie their words. Strikes are extremely rare, and concession bargaining is still common.

|Forum: Chris Hedges: The Great Unraveling|
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about "The Great Unraveling."
Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy Movement. In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians and literary figures, he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges’ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.
The event is organized by Canadian Dimension magazine with support from Centre for Social Justice | www.eventbrite.ca | Facebook event
