The ecological and social implications of climate change have – or should – become a central parameter for all discussions of work and capitalism. It is generally agreed that reliance on the burning of fossil fuels as the pre-eminent energy source for production and consumption over the history of capitalism is the critical factor in the ruinous greenhouse gas emissions triggering global warming, which would become irreversible if the earth's atmosphere were brought to a ‘tipping-point’.
What's New: Workers Climate Plan
| July 11, 2016
The Government of Canada is leading a process to create a National Climate Strategy, a result of signing the Paris Agreement to limit increasing global temperatures. Over the next 3 months, political leaders will be consulting the public and key stakeholders to propose a new federal climate strategy in October 2016. Our goal is to support thousands of industrial energy sector workers across the country in participating in these consultations, voicing support for a strategy that works for workers, families, communities, the economy, and the environment.

Thousands of Quebec nursing home workers have walked off the job in their first-ever series of coordinated strikes. They’re demanding that all workers get a starting hourly wage of $15. It’s a big jump for a workforce where the average wage is $12.50. The 3,000 workers in 32 nursing and retirement homes for the elderly had three days of strikes under their belts already by June 21, when they began an open-ended period of strikes.

America and the World In 2016 and Beyond... The world today is faced with crises on virtually every front, and any assessment of the foreign policy positions of the two major parties’ 2016 presidential candidates must be measured against how well they respond to these crises.
What's New: Canada's spring of occupations
Michal Rozworski | July 10, 2016
Three guests talk about two significant occupations of public space that have happened in Canada in the interim: the Black Lives Matter occupation of police headquarters plaza in Toronto and the occupations of Indigenous and Northern Affairs offices across the country. In this first half, I speak with journalist Desmond Cole about the Black Lives Matter occupation of the police headquarters plaza in Toronto. Activists took over the plaza for two weeks in March and April over continuing police brutality and lack of unaccountability.

What's New: The improbable rise of Jeremy Corbyn
| July 9, 2016
So far this week, Jeremy Corbyn has caused over 100,000 new members to join the UK Labour Party he leads, has apologized for a war he opposed from the beginning and appears to have survived a coup attempt on his leadership. And despite his backstabbing MPs, he’s one of the few party leaders left standing after the Brexit referendum. Given all this mayhem on the British political scene, I figured it would be a good time to speak with the writer Richard Seymour, author of the recently-released Corbyn: The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics.

|: 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.”
