Bullet #1031: Real Democracy and the Capture of Institutions

by Mario Candeias | September 3, 2014

It is no longer enough to win over civil society, occupy public spaces, take to the streets, carry out symbolic actions, prevent evictions, or to win plebiscites. In Spain movements for 'real democracy' are setting a course to capture institutions -- albeit with the aim to recreate these institutions in a constitutive process in the interests of 'real democracy'.

Bullet #1030: Working Class Politics After the NDP

by Sam Gindin and Michael Hurley | September 1, 2014

The issue that we can't ignore this Labour Day is the disorientation in our movement's politics. List the issues working people are most concerned about today -- whether deindustrialization, unemployment and underemployment; access to healthcare, childcare and pensions; poverty, racism, conditions of foreign workers and appalling levels of overall inequality; the environment, transit costs and transit services; another corporate-friendly trade agreement that is insensitive to workers and communities.

What's New: Declaration from Palestine Convergence at PSF

| August 31, 2014

Assembled in the Peoples' Social Forum, August 21-24, 2014, in Ottawa: We, people of conscience, are witnessing yet another massacre of Palestinian civilian men, women and children of Gaza, who are occupied, besieged and blockaded by the armed forces of the occupying power, Israel.

Bullet #1029: The U.S. Still Decides the Future of Capitalism

by Leo Panitch | August 31, 2014

International attention has been diverted away from this year's G20 meetings in Australia by the declaration from the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, at their meeting in Fortaleza Brazil this July, that they would launch a new "BRICS bank."

What's New: Feeding Illusions with Labour Market Studies and Trade Deals

by George Hewison | August 30, 2014

In the earliest days of unionizing, dreams of a different kind of society (where labour power was freely exchanged between labouring producers) motivated the earliest union pioneers to seek unionization, not as an end in itself, but as a means to fulfilling their ultimate dream. It was the power of that dream when seized upon by millions of workers that finally forced employers to recognize the need to take the most extreme edges off their own vision of an unfettered capitalist labour market.

What's New: Eastern Ukraine people's republics between militias and oligarchs

by Boris Kagarlitsky | August 30, 2014

The war between the Ukraine government and the republics of Novorossiya is gradually taking on the character of a positional stand-off. The resources of both sides are exhausted, and fighting reserves are at an end. For the people's republics, defending themselves against the many times larger military forces of the Kiev regime, the well-known principle of "a government needs to win, but for an insurrection it is enough not to lose" operates with full force.

Bullet #1028: (part 2) South Africa and the Changing Politics of Labour

by Leonard Gentle | August 29, 2014

NUMSA has always been the left critic within COSATU. Its roots lay in the traditions of independent socialism of FOSATU and MAWU, which precede the formation of COSATU -- a tradition to the left of the SACP and long castigated as 'workerism' by the SACP and the ANC in the 1980s.
