What's New: The (un)Democratic Primary: Why We Need a New Party of the 99%

by Kshama Sawant | May 4, 2016

Despite a decisive victory Tuesday providing further confirmation of her likely nomination, in many respects Hillary Clinton emerges from the New York primary more damaged, her party more divided, than she entered it. What came to be called The Battle of New York has served only to further expose what millions of people in the U.S. are becoming painfully aware of – the Democratic Party primary is rigged in favor of the establishment.



What's New: Why Alberta shouldn’t look to Norway, and why that’s a reason to Leap

by Michal Rozworski | May 4, 2016

One of the clearest memories I have from my only trip to Norway is the repeated failures at hitching a ride. What appeared to be an unbroken string of brand new Audi’s and BMW’s whizzed by my friend and I, dirty and sweaty after a few days hiking and camping in the mountains. “Where am I that the comforts of our rich assholes are the rights of common citizens?”, I remember thinking.



What's New: Some possible ideas for going forward

| May 4, 2016

Around the world powerful and diverse possibilities are in struggle. We, the signers of “Some Possible Ideas for Going Forward”, think one high priority for progress is activists developing, discussing, and settling on priorities around which to organize multi-issue activism in coming months and years. We hope this document can help inspire more conversations within groups and movements that, over time, come to a synthesis.

| May 3, 2016

Cities around the world both celebrated the history of the labor rights struggle and carried on its tradition by protesting for higher wages, better working conditions and an end to austerity.



Bullet #1253: The U.S. Empire's Culture Industry, at Large

by Tanner Mirrlees | May 3, 2016

For readers immersed in the annals of Empire, it is well known that the United States is no ordinary country in the world system. The United States is a unique Empire whose national security strategy since 1945 has relied upon a mix of diplomacy and brute military force to make the world safe for American capitalism around the world, and more importantly, made the world over for global capitalism.



What's New: What is to be Done with the Banks?

| May 2, 2016

Nine years after the outbreak of the financial crisis that continues to produce damaging social effects through the austerity policies imposed on victim populations, it’s time to take another look at the commitments that were made at that time by bankers, financiers, politicians and regulatory bodies. Those four players have failed fundamentally in the promises they made in the wake of the crisis – to moralise the banking system, separate commercial banks from investment banks, end exorbitant salaries and bonuses, and finally finance the real economy.



What's New: Breaking the cycle of exploitation

by Sean Burton | May 2, 2016

There has been a tremendous outpouring of anger and resentment since Newfoundland and Labrador's provincial budget was announced on April 14. As predicted, the Liberal Government has introduced a budget that amounts to a punishment of the working class of the province: higher taxes, special levies, and cuts to numerous important social services, with many more likely on the way later this year.

: Marx in Soho

Howard Zinn’s acclaimed one-man play Marx in Soho, published in 1999 and performed around the world, offers a compelling portrait of one of the modern era’s most influential thinkers. Karl Marx returns to tell stories about his family, his activism, and his writing career, and to dispel myths and misinterpretations that have emerged around his ideas. "I'm not a Marxist," he insists, yet he speaks forcefully but intimately about the social and economic inequalities that continue to plague western society. Humorous, wistful, and passionate in defence of the oppressed, Zinn's Marx is an inspiring figure to spend an evening with. Starring Jeff Bate Boerop and directed by John Ball, this production has had two successful runs in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
