What's New: The SACP sold out

by Zwelinzima Vavi | April 30, 2016

First let me say from the outset that NUMSA continues to be an inspiration to workers far and wide. Its internal democratic regime, as illustrated by this powerful gathering today, and its ability to put into practice our hallowed principles of worker control and independence provide a living example of what it takes to be a serious change agent in our society. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this important event.



Bullet #1252: The Attack on Democracy and Secularism in India

by Raju Das | April 29, 2016

There are things. And there are conditions of existence of things. In India, as in all countries of the world, many social problems exist. Close to 700 million Indians do not have access to food that will provide the minimum number of calories required for a healthy life. In other words, there is a massive amount of absolute poverty. And then there are conditions of existence of problems such as poverty.

What's New: Beltway Bullshit

J. W. Mason and Michal Rozworski | April 28, 2016

One of the long-running criticisms of Bernie Sanders is that while his proposals are attractive, they are impractical and lack crucial details. Many liberals have been quick to position Clinton as the expert and pragmatic choice against Sanders's dangerous idealism. His economic policies have drawn particular scorn. Recently, J. W. Mason explained why Sanders’s plans, could, in fact, produce strong growth and employment.



What's New: Mapping the European Left

by Dominic Heilig | April 28, 2016

The European party system is changing rapidly. As a result of the ongoing neoliberal attack, the middle class is shrinking quickly, and the decades-old party allegiance of large groups of voters has followed suit. The European far right has been able to capitalize on this development; in many countries, populist and radical right-wing parties have experienced an unprecedented boom, as Thilo Janssen’s RLS-study on “Far-right Parties and the European Union” shows.



What's New: When the Plan B is the Plan A

by Josep María Antentas | April 27, 2016

The conference for a plan B, which was held in Madrid from 19 to 21 February 2016, is the most important international policy initiative in the Europe of austerity, following on other meetings of this type, whose profile and audience were more restricted. It aimed to articulate political and social alternatives and to project strategic debates on a European scale. As necessary as it is difficult, the international arena has been a space for struggle, exchanges and reflection in the chiaroscuro period that followed the year 2011.



What's New: And a Union

by Stephanie Luce | April 27, 2016

The Fight for 15 movement claimed its biggest victories to date last week, with both New York and California passing major minimum-wage increases. California's rate, currently one of the highest in the country at $10 dollars per hour, will rise incrementally and reach $15 dollars by 2022. In New York, the wage floor will go up according to business size and location: larger New York City employers (ten or more employees) must pay at least $15 by the end of 2018.
