What's New: Greece: Phase One

by Sebastian Budgen and Stathis Kouvelakis | January 26, 2015

With Syriza approaching the gates of power in Greece, the Internet has been full of analyses, opinion pieces, and endorsements and denunciations. In this interview with Stathis Kouvelakis conducted earlier this month, we take a critical distance to understand the origins, trajectory, and possible challenges of this political formation.

What's New: A Historic Opportunity

by Alexis Tsipras | January 24, 2015

On Sunday, Greece will hold a pivotal election. Opinion polls still have Syriza ahead of New Democracy by 3 per cent and the old party of the center-left, PASOK, behind even the Communist Party of Greece (KKE). Syriza's platform has no doubt moderated over the past months, and much debate can be had about how much the party can accomplish in power so long as Greece remains tied to the eurozone. How a government of the Left would relate to the movements that paved the way for its election also remains to be seen.

What's New: Waving in the first Row

by Uri Avnery | January 24, 2015

The three Islamic terrorists could have been very proud of themselves, if they had lived to see it. By committing two attacks (quite ordinary ones by Israeli standards) they spread panic throughout France, brought millions of people onto the streets, gathered more than 40 heads of states in Paris. They changed the landscape of the French capital and other French cities by mobilizing thousands of soldiers and police officers to guard Jewish and other potential targets. For several days they dominated the news throughout the world.

What's New: Hope is on its way -- Greece is changing

by Vivian Messimeris | January 23, 2015

Tens of thousands gathered in Omonia Square to hear Alexis Tsipras, leader of radical left party SYRIZA, speak at the last campaign rally before Greece's January 25 crucial election -- which polls indicate SYRIZA will win. The crowd packed into the square and stretched as far as the eye could see. The atmosphere was electric. People were aware of the political significance and historic weight of this moment.

twinkle starForum: Environmental Justice, the Tar Sands, and Indigenous Rights

Environmental Justice, the Tar Sands, and Indigenous Rights
Tar Sands extraction projects, located primarily in Treaty 6 and 8, have radically damaged and contaminated a huge area of land in so-called Alberta, and poisoned the Athabasca watershed. As a result of the toxic operations, some Indigenous communities are experiencing unusually high rates of rare cancers and other illnesses. Traditional ways of life are also at risk as hunting, fishing, and collecting medicinal plants is becoming more difficult in polluted waters and lands.

These lands are the traditional territories of a number of Indigenous Nations whose right to hunt, fish, and live are protected by Treaties, which are currently being violated.

* Heather Milton Lightening, Indigenous Tar Sands Campaign
* Keith Stewart, Climate and Energy Campaign Coordinator, Greenpeace Canada
* Anna Zalik, Professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University

Recommended reading: A Line in the Tar Sands.

This is the second talk in the series: Capitalism vs. Ecology: We Need to Change Everything! Discussion series on ecology, economy, and social justice. Sponsored by: Centre for Social Justice, Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly, Socialist Project. | Facebook event
