What's New: Momentum Builds for May Day Strikes
by Jonathan Rosenblum | April 7, 2017
Shop steward Tomas Mejia sensed something was different when 600 janitors streamed into the Los Angeles union hall February 16--far more than for a regular membership meeting. Chanting 'Huelga! Huelga!' ('Strike! Strike!'), they voted unanimously to strike on May Day. This won’t be a strike against their employers. The janitors of SEIU United Service Workers West felt driven, Mejia says, 'to strike with the community' against the raids, threats, and immigrant-bashing hate speech that the Trump administration has unleashed.
What's New: Confronting Brexit
by Michael Calderbank | April 6, 2017
The current historical period is one of seemingly ceaseless flux. Political and economic shocks and crises follow in apparently endless succession. Complex political and historical phenomena arise with such rapidity that we’re reduced to cataloguing them in one-word formulae before moving on to the next challenge: Syria, Brexit, Trump, Le Pen.
What's New: A history of women's rights in Toronto
| April 6, 2017
Over the last three months, women in Toronto have taken to the streets in support of women’s rights and gender equality. Whether they were marching in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington or commemorating International Women’s Day, women in Toronto have a longstanding tradition of advocating for gender equality across Canada.
What's New: France: The storm and the compass
by Léon Crémieux | April 6, 2017
To say that France is experiencing a regime crisis is a euphemism. Every day, there emerges a new element of a political crisis which has shaken the two pillars of French political life for more than forty years: the Socialist Party (PS) and Les Républicains (LR); the party that comes from the Gaullist tradition. Now a 'surprise' election of Marine Le Pen in the next presidential election cannot be ruled out. This political and institutional crisis is also the consequence of a social crisis in which political polarization is taking place; unfortunately, this is happening mainly toward the right and the far right.
What's New: Trump and Climate Catastrophe
by John Bellamy Foster | April 5, 2017
The alarm bells are ringing. The climate-change denialism of the Trump administration, coupled with its goal of maximizing fossil-fuel extraction and consumption at all costs, constitutes, in the words of Noam Chomsky, 'almost a death knell for the human species.' As noted climatologist Michael E. Mann has declared, 'I fear that this may be game over for the climate.'
What's New: Briarpatch - website makeover

Since 1973, Briarpatch has been publishing committed journalism and critical commentary from its home in Regina, Saskatchewan.
