Bullet #1012: The Outsize (un)Importance of the Tar Sands
by Michal Rozworski | July 20, 2014
It's easy to overestimate the importance of the tar sands to the Canadian economy. Tar sands and their pipelines are, after all, hailed by the ruling Conservatives, sections of the business press and the ever-present oil lobby as this young century's 'nation-building' project.
What's New: Government of India must stand up for Palestine
| July 19, 2014
The murderous attack of Israel on Gaza that began on 3 July is like all Israel's attacks on Palestine without justification and lacking in proportion. There is no evidence that the three Israeli teenagers who went missing on 12 June and whose bodies were found on 30 June were killed by Hamas.
What's New: CUPW calls for Immediate Ceasefire
| July 19, 2014
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has never shied away from pointing out global injustices and violations of human rights, and working in solidarity with organizations working for justice and peace.

The American political system, so highly polarized between conservative Republicans and moderate Democrats, has experienced in the last year some interesting changes on the left-hand margin of the national political scene. From Bill de Blasio's victory in the mayoral election in New York City, to Kshama Sawant's winning of a city council seat in Seattle.
What's New: First Nations Rights and Title Claims
by Brad Hornick | July 17, 2014
A healthy majority of First Nations in British Columbia have joined the opposition to federal government approval of the Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline, arguing that it fails to respect the human rights of Indigenous peoples and violates Canada's legal obligations under both federal and international law.

|: Protest in Solidarity with Gaza|
Even before the arrival of the ground assault on Thursday, the casualties have been growing by the hour, with Israeli strikes on civilian homes, clearly-marked press vehicles, hospitals and homes for the elderly and people with disabilities.
There is nowhere for people in Gaza to hide. The cruel blockade imposed on Gaza denies them medical supplies necessary to save lives.
With repeated attacks on helpless civilian targets, with the number of dead Palestinian women, children and elderly growing rapidly, this aggression can only be called one thing: a massacre.
Join us to protest this ongoing massacre and to raise awareness about the atrocities being committed to the people of Palestine which are not being covered by the biased media.
Organized by the Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians, Independent Jewish Voices and community allies.
