review by Daniel Tseghay | August 23, 2014
Part of the history of the last five centuries on these territories is the story of Europeans displacing Indigenous peoples for economic gain. It is this history that Glen Coulthard, in his new book, Red Skin, White Masks: Rejecting the Colonial Politics of Recognition, calls the "violent transformation of noncapitalist forms of life into capitalist ones."

Bullet #1024: Responding to Capitalist Global Disaster: 1914 and Today
by John Riddell | August 22, 2014
On June 28th, one hundred years ago, a Bosnian nationalist assassinated the crown prince of Austria-Hungary, setting in motion a chain of events that led a month later to the outbreak of the First World War.

What's New: Our City Matters
| August 21, 2014
We want a city with decent jobs, affordable housing, schools that work for our kids and transit that is fast and reliable. The people of Toronto are willing to invest in a city that works well, and one that doesn't leave any our neighbours behind -- because poverty hurts all of us. Torontonians deserve to have new leadership that is tough, respected and willing to fight hard and smart for the interests of all families.

What's New: The Peoples' Social Forum
by David P. Ball | August 20, 2014

|: Buses from Toronto to New York for the People's Climate March|
This is an invitation to change everything. In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we'll take a stand to bend the course of history. We'll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of extreme climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
Details: We will be leaving Toronto on Friday, September 19th in the evening, meeting at 7pm to leave at 8pm at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst, just South of Bloor), and the buses will drive overnight. On Saturday, there will be many climate events in New York City, which we will inform you about closer to the time, although you're free to do as you please. Those who purchase a "Sleepover" ticket will be sleeping on the floor of the Church of St Luke and St Matthew, and both Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast will be provided. The PCM (march) itself is on Sunday starting at 11:30am, and we will be marching in a group together (meet-up location TBA). We will then depart from NYC on Sunday evening, meeting at 5pm to leave by 6pm, and return to Toronto very early on Monday morning (the exact time of arrival depends on traffic and border crossing, but we should (hopefully) be back in Toronto downtown by 6am).
You must be 18+ to join us. Under 18s will be considered, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please contact us, as logistics need to be worked out on a case-by-case basis.
