What's New: Alter Summit: Newsletter Issue 2
by Susan George | March 11, 2014
The AlterSummit has decided to centre its work in 2014 around three key themes: 1. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership or TTIP [the EU-USA trade agreement seeking to integrate the two economies]. 2. The Troika and the European Union's Politics of Austerity 3. The Rise of the Far Right.

The slant of Venezuela's private media and the international media on what is happening in Venezuela is clear: the government is responsible for the violence. In the first place, it is said, government-ordered gunmen are shooting at peaceful demonstrators and the violence generated by the opposition is just a response to the brutality of police and military forces.
review by Ernest Tate | March 9, 2014

What's New: Ali Mustafa
by Justin Podur | March 9, 2014
I met Ali Mustafa a long time ago, when he was one of the younger activists in Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA). I was not so old as I am now but Ali's energy and anger made me feel my age then. Ali was no single-issue activist. He spent a summer working (as an intern I think) with the Movimento Sem Terra (MST) in Brazil, a movement of landless peasants. That was how he did things. He wanted to go, be in it.

LeftStreamed: Poor People's History of East Downtown Toronto
March 8, 2014
For close to two centuries East Downtown Toronto has welcomed the unemployed, homeless and working poor. Infrastructures to support the unemployed, some of which date back to the establishment of Toronto first poor house to the 1830s, are now being threatened and dismantled by the city to make room for Toronto's more affluent residents. Where will the unemployed, homeless, and poor residents go?
