What's New: The Global Development Crisis
by Ben Selwyn | April 6, 2014
The author critiques mainstream and most alternative conceptions of development and advances the concept of 'labour-centred development'. He argues for interpreting labouring class struggles from below as developmental, and thinks through what kinds of development can emerge from these struggles - from local to national to global levels.

by Solidarity Halifax | April 5, 2014
Stephen McNeil has launched an underhanded attack on workers by introducing Bill 37. The bill is designed to destroy worker power in the public sector. Bill 37 is duplicitous. It goes beyond the scope of this particular labour dispute by reaching into future rounds of negotiations and declawing the union power of some 40,000 public sector workers.

by Jackson Petsche | April 5, 2014

by Gal Kirn | April 4, 2014

The world's economy has gone through massive changes over the past quarter century or so.

The death records of tens of thousands of First Nations children who died during the time residential schools were operating in Canada have been handed over to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Several provincial governments gave up the records to the commission, which will now cross-reference the information with student lists to determine who among the children died while in the care of the church-run schools and where they might be buried.
