In the face of multiple crises of profit-driven socio-economic systems that have driven millions of people in Africa into hopeless poverty, the urgent questions of our time are quite clear: How do we change the balance of class forces in favour of the working class? What are the radical reforms around which a program of mass action could be initiated? How do we form mass workers’ parties all over the continent? What about organisations of the jobless, the landless and the homeless, the feminist structures, the youth?
Bullet #1363: How Labor and Climate United Can Trump Donald Trump
by Labor Network for Sustainability | January 31, 2017
Donald Trump and his congressional Republican allies have taken control of the U.S. government. The result threatens to be devastating for both labor and the climate - not to mention immigrants, African Americans, Muslims, women, children, the elderly, the disabled, LGBTQ people, and many others.

Cafeteria workers at York University and the University of Toronto’s Scarborough campus are gearing up for a joint strike in February. The workers are employed by Aramark, which is contracted out by the universities to provide food service on their campuses. Workers themselves see any potential strike as targeting the universities, whose subcontracting of food services are part of the problem. Subcontractors like Aramark are used by universities to provide food services on the cheap, which invetiably results in unjust working conditions for workers.
What's New: The Middle East and Marxist History
Interview with John Chalcraft | January 30, 2017

What's New: Food for Revolutionary Thought
by Leo Panitch | January 28, 2017
For those of us long enough in the tooth to recall what it was like ‘way back when’, there is sometimes a distinct whiff of something like the old sectarianism in the air these days. And it most often comes, oddly enough, from precisely those quarters which contrast their embrace of ecological and intersectional issues today with the alleged neglect of such by earlier socialist generations with whom they themselves once identified--but now proudly proclaim they no longer do for these reasons.
What's New: Challenging a Giant
by Mark Dudzic | January 28, 2017
One of the few bright spots in this year’s election was the victory of the Richmond Progressive Alliance candidates and RPA-endorsed rent control initiative in Richmond, California, a predominantly black and Latino, gritty (though rapidly gentrifying) industrial city of 110,000 in the East Bay. The alliance, a coalition of community groups, unions, liberal democrats, Greens, environmentalists, and leftists of various stripes, had participated in the governance of Richmond for the previous twelve years.
