What's New: The Ali Mustafa Memorial Award for People’s Journalism

| September 4, 2015

Ali Mustafa was a freelance photojournalist whose images from Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Brazil and his native Toronto captured both the resilience of ordinary people in conflict zones and the spirit of resistance and revolution. On 9 March 2014, Ali was killed in Hadariyeh, a rebel-held area of Aleppo, by an explosion from a barrel bomb dropped by a Syrian government aircraft. Ali was photographing the destruction and helping those who had just moments earlier been hit by a barrel bomb. Ali was only 29 years old at the time.

What's New: The Harper Canada

| September 2, 2015

For nearly a decade, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has quietly led Canada in a new direction. Our laws have changed. Our national objectives have changed. Our global reputation has changed. As we reflect on a decade of changes, some drastic and others subtle, it is clear that Canada’s economic, environmental, political, legal, and moral landscape has undergone a significant transformation.

What's New: Klein vs. Klein

by Out of the Woods | September 1, 2015

This Changes Everything is a book capacious enough to allow Naomi Klein two positions at once. But a real climate-justice movement will at some point have to make choices. Naomi Klein’s success pulls her in two directions. To some, her decades-long failure to produce “proper” theory as well as writing scintillating and successful books has been an affront.

: Refugees Welcome!

With images and stories in the media on the migrant crisis from Syria and the surrounding areas, the deaths of the Aylan, Galip and Rehan Kurdi has shone a light on the complicity of the Canadian governments, its corporations and allies in this crisis. Thousands of Eritrean, Somali, Syrian, Yemeni, and Balkan refugees are dying on the shores of Fortress Europe; as Latin Americans have died enroute to the United States of America.

Due to discriminatory restrictions implemented by the federal government, the number of refugee claims in Canada decreased by 50 percent and the number of accepted refugees dropped by 30 percent between 2006 and 2012. These laws and policies have caused untold misery and death. In Canada today, citizenship is harder to get, and easier to lose. Most racialized and poor migrants can only come here as short-term migrant workers, easily deported.

The Canadian government in alliance with resource-extractive corporations along with their European and American partners have been profiting from the wars, environmental collapse and economic depressions of many countries in the South resulting in over 52 million displaced people around the globe.

At the same time, communities are rising up across the globe. In Germany and Iceland, tens of thousands of people have forced open the borders, and opened their homes to refugees. It’s time for us to do the same.
