What's New: The European Left, Social Democracy, and the Way Ahead

by Teppo Eskelinen | July 25, 2016

When locating the key differences between the political left in the European West and the political Left in the European East, an element of key importance appears to be something external to the Left itself. Namely, the politics and identities of the Western Left have long been shaped by a force external to it: Social Democracy (SD). Yet we in the Western Left have not been too willing to admit the huge indirect influence of the strong SD parties on the Left, and therefore are not always reacting appropriately when the SDs threaten ideological demise.

What's New: Solidarity Winnipeg: Grassroots renewal against austerity in Manitoba

| July 23, 2016

On this episode of Talking Radical Radio, Scott Neigh speaks with Sofia Soriano and David Camfield. They are members of a new group called Solidarity Winnipeg, which aims to build grassroots momentum in the face of the newly intensified austerity agenda in the province of Manitoba. The total numbers involved are pretty small so far, but there are signs in communities across the country of an upswing in recent years in the number of people looking for some sort of collective, multi-issue, sustained organization.

What's New: Turkey: A war of two coups

by Sungur Savran | July 23, 2016

On the night of 15-16 July, Turkey went through a cataclysm that stunned the world: a huge section of the armed forces of the country attempted to take power from the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the AKP, came very close to its objective, but was ultimately defeated. Official statements of imperialist countries celebrate the triumph of democracy.

What's New: Toronto's Questionable Plan to Add a Single Subway Stop

by Chris Bateman | July 22, 2016

After years of fractious, divisive, and sometimes farcical back-and-forth, Toronto is going to extend its subway system. Toronto’s city council voted 28-15 last week to finally reject a fully-funded light rail line (LRT) in favor of a more costly, one-stop subway extension. Both would have run from the present eastern terminus of the subway system to the centre of Scarborough, a formerly independent city that amalgamated with Toronto in 1998. But that's where the similarities between the two proposals end.

Bullet #1284: Implementing Austerity By Downloading Responsibility

by AJ Withers and Yogi Acharya | July 22, 2016

Laura Bardeau had bedbugs and lost all of her furniture. A single mother with two children, trying to survive on social assistance, she applied for emergency housing support from the City of Toronto's Housing Stabilization Fund (HSF). In doing so Laura was one of over 30,000 people annually who try to access this fund. As per her eligibility, Laura requested the maximum $1500 the City allots for replacing necessary furniture. That was in April. Much to her surprise, she was denied; not once, but twice.

: Moncada Celebration

* Music, dance, cash bar, raffle, door prize
* Words from the Cuban Consulate
* Special Video presentation of Fidel Castro’s 90th Birthday

On July 26, 1953, 135 young revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro boldly assaulted the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, the country’s second-largest military fortress, while two smaller groups led by Abel Santamaria and Raúl Castro targeted important adjacent buildings. Though the Moncada Barracks did not fall, the revolutionary action was highly significant. It signalled the future battles that were to triumph in 1959 when the Cuban people celebrated the defeat of Fulgencio Batista’s brutal dictatorship. As Fidel declared later, “Moncada taught us to turn setbacks into victories.”
