LeftStreamed: Global Intern Strike!

February 19, 2017

On February 20th, young people across the world will come together to push for an end to the exploitative and exclusionary practice of unpaid internships. Decentralised actions will take place in a range of cities, to call on employers and leaders to ensure that quality intern opportunities are paid and accessible to all - regardless of their socioeconomic background.

What's New: A Call for Solidarity Against All 'Wars on ____'

by The Alitaptap Collective | February 18, 2017

Build walls. Make war. The siren call of hate rises to a seemingly unstoppable beat. As we entered a new year, we looked with increasing concern at events in the Philippines. As of January 2017, over 7,000 were killed in a ‘War on Drugs’ that is no less than a war on the poor - many too destitute to even bury their own dead.

What's New: Of productivity in France and in Germany

by Thomas Piketty | February 18, 2017

At the start of 2017, with the elections in France in the Spring and then in Germany in the Autumn, it may prove useful to return to one of the fundamental issues which plagues discussion at European level, that is the alleged economic asymmetry between Germany with its reputation as prosperous and France which is described as on the decline.

What's New: A letter from North America – Trump and After

by Ernie Tate | February 17, 2017

Humanity has certainly entered an alarmingly dangerous time and we should all be fearful for the future, but not only because of the Trump ascendancy and the rise of hard right around the globe but because of how the U.S. has been arming itself over the past period. In his last defense budget, for example, Obama, without much public notice being taken of it, assigned $1.2-trillion to 'improve' their nuclear weapons and missile system, an unimaginable amount by any standard.

What's New: Strikes?

by Doug Henwood | February 17, 2017

The strike -- labor’s most powerful weapon against capital, except maybe sabotage--is disappearing even more rapidly than unions, which is saying a lot. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported this morning that there were 15 work stoppages involving 1,000 or more workers in 2016. That’s 1 above the average of the past five years, and down 96 per cent from the average of the late 1940 and 1950s.

Bullet #1370: South Africa and the Changing Possibilities for the Left

by Leonard Gentle | February 16, 2017

With the claims that a new trade union federation will be launched in March 2017, it is appropriate to draw up a balance sheet of the labour movement in South Africa, and ask whether the optimism of many that a new Left force is going to be unleashed is justified. Or whether the possibilities for a force of revolutionary working class politics lie elsewhere. The period framed by the Marikana massacre of August 2012 and the December 2013 Special Congress of NUMSA, was one in which, so it seemed, a political rupture occurred.

What's New: Class, Party and the Challenge of State Transformation

by Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin | February 15, 2017

In 1917, not only those parties engaged in insurrectionary revolution but even those committed to gradual reform still spoke of eventually transcending capitalism. Half a century later social democrats had explicitly come to define their political goals as compatible with a welfare-state variety of capitalism; and well before the end of the century many who had formerly embraced the legacy of 1917 would join them in this.
