 What’s New 

What's New: Capitalism, Marxism, and the Black Radical Tradition

Cedric Robinson | June 6, 2016

It is the task of the radical critic to illuminate what is repressed and excluded by the basic mechanisms of a given social order. It is the task of the politically engaged radical critic to side with the excluded and repressed: to develop insights gained in confrontation with injustice, to nourish cultures of resistance, and to help define the means with which society can be rendered adequate to the full breadth of human potentialities.

What's New: The End of the Road: Andreas Malm on Ende Gelände

by Andreas Malm | June 6, 2016

On Sunday afternoon, Swedish national television publishes what must be deemed a sensational report: for the first time, a coal-fired power plant in central Europe has been shut down by climate activists. All electricity production at Schwarze Pumpe – ‘black pump’ – has ceased due to shortage of coal. The spokesperson for Vattenfall, the state-owned Swedish corporation operating the east German plant, declares that some heat is still being generated, but that activists blocking the supply routes from its nearby mine have succeeded in starving it of fuel for electricity.

What's New: Sykes-Picot: One hundred years on

by Basheer Nafi | June 6, 2016

The commemoration of the centenary of the signing of the Sykes-Picot Agreement turned out to be bigger than expected. Arab and English language documentaries, important chapters or books, conferences and workshops, and scores of articles and commentaries were published during the weeks preceding 16 May. Within the Arab space, the anniversary took on a more sombre note this time. Harsh self-criticism, which usually accompanies the commemoration of hateful historic events, has disappeared.

Bullet #1264: Neoliberalism, Public Services and Labour in Toronto

by Carlo Fanelli | June 5, 2016

City Manager Peter Wallace recently released a report on The City of Toronto's Long-term Financial Direction. The analysis is the latest to reinforce what many earlier studies have long been arguing: that the city of Toronto does not have a spending crisis, but a revenue crisis. It found that 'cost containment' measures have produced some $300-million in savings since 2010, but that this has done little to address the structural deficit at the root of the city's financial challenges. The report notes that, consistent with the austerity approaches adopted by the governments of Ontario and Canada, city government is less expensive today than it was six years ago.

What's New: Indigenous Resurgence with Glen Coulthard

| June 4, 2016

In this fifth episode of The Ossington Circle, Justin Podur interviews Glen Coulthard, author of Red Skin, White Masks: Rejecting the Colonial Politics of Recognition. They discuss the revolutionary ideas of Frantz Fanon, the portability of revolutionary ideas, the indigenous resurgence, and the question of solidarity.

What's New: I Just Wanted to Be Free: The Radical Reverberations of Muhammad Ali

by Dave Zirin | June 4, 2016

The reverberations. Not the rumbles, the reverberations. The death of Muhammad Ali will undoubtedly move people’s minds to his epic boxing matches against Joe Frazier and George Foreman, or there will be retrospectives about his epic 'rumbles' against racism and war. But it’s the reverberations that we have to understand in order to see Muhammad Ali as what he remains: the most important athlete to ever live. It’s the reverberations that are our best defense against real-time efforts to pull out his political teeth and turn him into a harmless icon suitable for mass consumption.

NCS People’s University
This summer at the World Social Forum (WSF) Montreal will host tens of thousands of people and hundreds of groups and movements from around the world who are involved in struggles for justice and changing the world... and the People’s University of the Nouveaux Cahiers du socialisme (NCS) will be there!

The NCS People’s University grows out of the joint efforts of some 40 people active in trade unions, in feminist, environmental and other social movements, and in the academic world in Quebec. It is a collective intellectual and political endeavour aimed at supporting efforts to build a strong movement for radical change. The People’s University is neither academic nor bookish in its approach. We believe that knowledge and political capacities are enriched by the interplay of theory and practice grounded in the fight to change the world.

By registering for the World Social Forum you are also registering for the NCS’ People’s University. You can register online at | Program.pdf

World Social Forum 2016
The goal of the WSF 2016 is to gather tens of thousands of people from groups in civil society, organizations and social movements who want to build a sustainable and inclusive world, where every person and every people has its place and can make its voice heard.

Whether or not you think you will be present in Montreal from the 9th to 14th of August 2016, you can participate in the WSF 2016 by simply registering. This entails the creation of an account that allows you to access to a social network, keeps you in touch with participants, NGOs as well as the WSF collective who, like you believe in the construction of a better world.
