review by Doug Williams | July 30, 2014
Ernest Tate's new two-volume memoir is a significant accomplishment. In recounting the savor and substance of daily life devoted to the socialist cause, it not only offers a fascinating account of revolutionary militancy in mostly backward times, it sets a discomfiting example for weekend activists, armchair revolutionaries, academic Marxists, and veterans of the political upsurge of the 1960s.

What's New: World War One: The main enemy was at home
by Karl Liebknecht | July 28, 2014
Today marks 100 years since the Serbian campaign that started World War One. Here we republish the Spartacus League's illegal anti-war leaflet from May 1915. Its author Karl Liebknecht was the most famous anti-war figure in Germany, having been the sole parliamentary deputy to vote against further war loans in December 1914.
What's New: On "Environmental catastrophism"
by Sam Gindin | July 28, 2014
The most critical question confronting anyone concerned with the environmental crisis is the political one: how to build a social force able to do something about it. The most important division among social activists is between those who believe that personal recycling, technical fixes, market incentives and green jobs can solve the environmental crisis, and those who argue the solutions are necessarily much more radical, extending to a challenge to capitalism itself.

Imperialist governments and media as well as countless other commentators abound with portrayals of the pro-democracy, pro-autonomy forces in eastern Ukraine as "Russian-backed separatists" and worse. On the 'worse' range of the spectrum, terms such as 'fanatics', 'thugs' and even 'fascists' are tossed about.
Bullet #1015: Fatal Advice for the NDP
by J. F. Conway | July 27, 2014
Murray Mandryk, the political columnist for Saskatchewan's capitalist press, once again gives the NDP free political advice regarding the dangers of toying with left-wing ideas. He represents a long tradition in Canadian political commentary -- the capitalist media have repeatedly warned the CCF and the NDP about the electoral folly of being too left-leaning.

|Solidarity With Gaza: End the assault on Gaza! Break the siege!|
Israeli forces have now killed more than 1,000 Palestinians (including over 170 children), wounded over 6,000 and displaced over 200,000 people in Gaza. Protests are being organized in cities around the world to respond to Israeli war crimes and to call for an immediate military embargo on Israel.
As they did during Israel's attack on Gaza in 2008-09 that killed over 1400 Palestinians, the Canadian government is once again giving its full, uncritical support to Israel. Canada has supported Israel's illegal siege on Gaza since it began over 7 years ago - never calling on Israel to end the blockage to allow food, medicine, building supplies and other necessities into Gaza. Canada continues to engage in free trade, particularly arms deals, with Israel. Canada is deeply complicit in the crimes being committed in Palestine.
The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid is calling on all people of conscience to take action against Israel's war crimes and Canadian support for these massacres.
