What's New: Palestinian civil society condemns Canadian government disinformation

| February 5, 2015

The Palestinian BDS National Committee, the largest coalition of Palestinian civil society organisations that leads the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, has condemned the Canadian government's ramped up disinformation campaign and repressive measures against the BDS movement for Palestinian rights. Canada and Israel signed a series of cooperation agreements recently, one of which included an unprecedented commitment to work jointly to counter the continued growth of BDS.

What's New: Potemkin Review (Winter 2015)

| February 5, 2015

Contemporary existence is marked by a deep sense of confusion, a profound difficulty in making sense of the world and the material conditions one faces. Struggling through the causes of this confusion -- a potentially religious upbringing, an uncritical education including the nationalist history one is taught, and the apologia for capitalism one is fed daily by gatekeepers of power -- the contemporary mind is bewildered. Under these circumstances, left analysis and critical thinking in the footsteps of the radical Enlightenment tradition is the only way to enable a majority of the planet's population to understand the world with sober senses, rather than live in an illusory world.

What's New: Algonquins of Barriere Lake File Court Action against the Government of Canada

| February 5, 2015

Last Friday, Chief and Council for the Algonquins of Barriere Lake filed a lawsuit against Canada and the community's past and present third party managers, BDO Canada LLP and Hartel Financial Management Corporation. The lawsuit claims harms suffered by Barriere Lake caused by Canada and the third party managers, by mismanaging and withholding funds that were to be used for the benefit of the community and its members.

What's New: Initiative for Democratic Socialism (Slovenia)

| February 4, 2015

Dear friends and supporters, 2014 was a landmark in the development of the Initiative for Democratic Socialism. A year after a series of popular uprisings against austerity measures came to a close we decided that it was time to establish a new and explicitly socialist party. Since its founding congress on March 8th 2014, we have participated in three different elections that presented a real strain and a new challenge for both the organisation, as well as the newly established United Left coalition.

What's New: Why Can't Public Transit Be Free?

by Joe Pinsker | February 4, 2015

About 500 subway riders in Stockholm have an ingenious scheme to avoid paying fares. The group calls itself Planka, and they've banded together because getting caught free-riding comes with a steep $120 penalty. Here's how it works: each member pays about $12 in monthly dues, and the resulting pool of cash more than covers any fines members incur.

What's New: The Politics of the Constitutional Right to Strike

by Charles Smith | February 3, 2015

In SFL v. Saskatchewan, the SCC turned that judicial philosophy on its head and ruled that workers do have collective rights that cannot be easily overturned by government. This represented a historical reversal and expanded the collective provisions of freedom of association in the Charter.

Bullet #1076: Seizing the Opportunity to Fight Austerity

An Interview with Alexis Tsipras | February 3, 2015

The effects of the crisis on Greek society have been truly devastating. It comes as no surprise that there have been major changes in the political scene. Syriza has always offered a detailed analysis of the crisis and the underlying causes. While the mainstream parties led people on -- rather brazenly, I might add -- we were vehement that austerity would have severe negative consequences and lead to recession; these policies simply weren't sustainable.

What's New: Prospects for Syriza

| February 2, 2015

Leo Panitch spoke with NLP's Tom Mills about the prospects for the new radical left Syriza government and what the left elsewhere can do to strengthen their position in Europe.

Forum: TRANSITogether: Building A Movement

TRANSITogether: Building A Movement
The election of John Tory creates new openings and challenges for the public transit movement in Toronto, as does the large vote for Ford in the city’s inner suburban areas. How are we to understand this moment, and how do we move forward as a transit movement? These are some of the questions posed at this forum. Invited is any one interested in public transit as well as organizations seeking to build, expand and defend the public transit movement. The forum will include speakers, small group discussions and a summary session.
