LeftStreamed: Dump Hydro Privatization, Build Public Power

May 28, 2017

Hydro in Ontario is a mess and rates are skyrocketing. The high number of people who have trouble paying or can't pay their Hydro bills is growing by the day. In short, deregulation and privatization did not deliver on its promises of 'lower rates,' or create 'greater efficiencies.' Smart Meters did not save consumers any money. In fact, Hydro deregulation has been a complete disaster for Ontario's businesses, citizens and its economy.



What's New: The Promises and Limitations of Radical Local Politics

by Michael D. Yates | May 27, 2017

Steve Early has worked as a labor journalist, lawyer, organizer, or union representative since 1972. For 27 years, Early was a Boston-based national staff member of the Communications Workers of America. He has published many books and articles about labor-related issues. His work has appeared in The Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The Progressive, CounterPunch and many other newspapers and magazines. His most recent book, Refinery Town: Big Oil, Big Money, and the Remaking of An American City, describes the building of a what is very likely the most successful progressive political organization, The Richmond Progressive Alliance, in the United States, in Richmond, California, a blue collar city long dominated by Chevron Corp.



What's New: Brazil: We need direct elections now

Joao Pedro Stedile interviewed by Joana Tavares | May 27, 2017

The Globo network has become the main party of the Brazilian bourgeoisie. It protects the interests of capital, uses its force of manipulation of public opinion and coordinates with the ideological sectors of the bourgeoisie, which include the Judiciary Power, some prosecutors, and the press in general. They know that Brazil and the world are going through a serious economic, social and environmental crisis, caused by capitalism.

About 200 people from across southern Ontario, and as far north as Sudbury and North Bay gathered in Toronto on March 31-April 1 for a provincial strategy session of the Fight for $15 and Fairness. It was a great two days of discussion and workshops all geared towards building this campaign that has started to shape some of the political terrain for labour in Ontario, and begun to get a hearing on some of its key demands like paid sick days, fair scheduling and a $15 minimum wage.

by Manuel Larrabure | May 26, 2017

In this recording, Temer can be heard engaging in discussions of bribery with former House speaker and fellow party member Eduardo Cunha, jailed in 2016 on corruption charges. The recording was acquired by billionaire corporate executive, Joesley Batista.
