LeftStreamed: Bill C-27: An Attack on Pensions

May 7, 2017

The Ottawa Committee for Pension Security (OCPS) recently co-hosted a panel discussion with the Congress of Union Retirees about Bill C-27, a Bill that will give employers the tools they need to dump their defined benefit pension plan guaranteed promises, including the benefits already earned and paid for by active workers and retirees. Presentations by Mark Jansen and Mike Palecek. Recorded in Ottawa, 1 March 2017.

What's New: Thanks, Capitalism!

by Democratic Socialists of America | May 6, 2017

The DSA believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. We are a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

Bullet #1409: Anti-Austerity Geringonça in Portugal

by Bruno Góis | May 6, 2017

A new word has arisen in the European political debate: Geringonça. This new Portuguese political term geringonça (contraption), refers to the current minority government of the Socialist Party (center-left) supported in the parliament by radical left parties. The name Geringonça was coined by its conservative critics but became popular and is also used by supporters. Between 2012 and 2013, Portugal had massive popular demonstrations, the biggest since the revolutionary period of 1974/75. Half a million people in the streets in a country of 10 million inhabitants is quite a lot.

What's New: What we need is a working-class politics

by Hassan Husseini | May 5, 2017

Reflecting on the state of our movement, we should be asking: Is the labour movement better positioned today to influence and affect meaningful change than under Harper? Are the prospects for workers in this country better than they were over the past 10 years? There is no doubt that, after a decade of Harper, unions have much to celebrate with his defeat just over a year ago.

What's New: Jeremy Corbyn’s 10 pledges to transform Britain

| May 5, 2017

Labour’s aim is to rebuild and transform Britain, for the many not the few. These ten pledges set out the framework for what Labour will campaign for - and what a Labour government will do. 1. Full Employment; 2. A Secure homes guarantee; 3. Security at work; 4. Secure NHS and social care; 5. National education service; 6. Action to secure our environment...

Bullet #1408: Zionist Colonization is Not ‘Exceptional’: A Marxist Viewpoint

by Tikva Honig-Parnass | May 4, 2017

This article aims to challenge the rather widely accepted claim that the nature of Zionist settler colonization is exceptional and even 'defies appeal to any precedent that can usefully be invoked as to its evolution and eventual revolution.' My challenge will focus on Moshé Machover's 2016 article, 'The decolonization of Palestine' which is the third of a series of three articles published in Weekly Worker. It deals with the typology of colonial projects and its implication upon identifying Zionist colonization and the struggle for its downfall.

What's New: Why this scientist is marching

by Rebekah Ward | May 4, 2017

'Science is real' and 'Objective reality exists' read the signs that covered Jessie Square in San Francisco last December. 'Immigrants make science great' read some at Boston's Copley Square in February. An unlikely sector of the populace has begun to respond to the threat that the Trump agenda represents. Earth Day, April 22, has been called as a day of action for all of us who want to defend academic freedom, public health and the human habitability of the planet itself.

Book launch: Unions and the City: Negotiating Urban Change

Unions and the City: Negotiating Urban Change
This panel invites Toronto labour leadership to respond to a comparative book on labour strategy and political action in Toronto and New York City, titled Unions and the City: Negotiating Urban Change (Cornell ILR Press, Spring 2017). The book discusses how local unions in four sectors (hospitality, film, green energy and child care) seek to advance organizing and collective bargaining goals through the reregulation of their respective sectors. Union strategy is evaluated according to whether it succeeds in achieving narrow trade union goals while also addressing broader class demands and social justice criteria.

Roundtable Discussion Moderated by Ian MacDonald. Panelists:
* Sarah Ryan (CUPE National)
* Rick Ciccarelli (Labour Education Centre)
* Lis Pimentel (UNITE HERE Local 75)
* John Cartwright (Toronto and York Region Labour Council)
* Bob Hall (IATSE Local 873)

Congress: Socialist Studies 2017

This year, the Society for Socialist Studies turns fifty, and we look forward to welcoming colleagues to our annual conference at Congress 2017, hosted by Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario from May 30 – June 2 2017.

The theme of the Conference is ‘Liberation Here and Now: Continuity and Change in Socialist Studies at 50 Years and Beyond.’ Diverging from the Congress theme, ‘From Far and Wide: The Next 150’, we call upon participants to fundamentally trouble Project Canada, to celebrate past and future resistances and solidarities, and to engage in dialogue on how to get to a decolonized praxis and collective liberation here and now.
