What's New: A Path to Victory against Austerity in Ontario?

by Steve D'Arcy | July 2, 2015

It won't be easy to turn the tide against austerity in Ontario. Big business would never allow an elected government, of whatever party, to reverse the policy trajectory of recent years -- the 'austerity' agenda -- simply because that agenda is unpopular and lots of people are protesting it. No, only a massive campaign of serious disruption could force the hand of elites and raise the political cost of austerity to the point where proceeding with austerity would be judged by big business to be too dangerous to their interests.

What's New: Non À L'austérité, La Parole Au Peuple!

by Roger Rashi | July 1, 2015

Dans la nuit du vendredi 26 juin le Premier ministre grec Alexis Tsipras refuse les dernières propositions faites à la Grèce par les «institutions» (la BCE, la Commission européenne et le FMI) et annonce un référendum. Moins de 24h plus tard, les «institutions» ripostent en asphyxiant l’économie de la Grèce. Elles refusent d’augmenter les liquidités accordées au pays et forcent le gouvernement à fermer temporairement les banques et instaurer un contrôle sur les capitaux.



What's New: PAME: No to the Memorandum of Troika – No to the Memorandum of SYRIZA

| July 1, 2015

The coalition Government of the Socialdemocratic SYRIZA and the ultrarightwing ANEL approved last night in the Parliament the conducting of a Referendum on July 5th. This resolution was voted in the Parliament with 178 votes in favor coming from the three major parties, SYRIZA, the ultarightwing racist ANEL and the neofascist party Golden Dawn.

by Mario Candeias | July 1, 2015

Barcelona and Madrid are won. With Ada Colau and Manuela Carmena, two women will now occupy the mayoralties of both metropolises. Barcelona en Comú and Ahora Madrid were the names of the municipal connective platforms. Barcelona en Comú won the most seats in the city and can form a left-wing majority with both leftist parties for Catalonian independence, the Republican Left of Catalonia.



What's New: The Making of the Migration Crisis

by Harsha Walia | June 30, 2015

The unprecedented scale of global migration and migrant deaths are deliberate, not coincidental. Leading up to World Refugee Day on Saturday, the United Nations unveiled a devastating and damning report on the scale of global displacement. The UN's Refugee Agency data reveals a total of 59.5 million people are displaced around the world. With one in every 122 people being internally displaced or seeking asylum in a new country.



What's New: No to Blackmail and to Austerity – Yes to Democracy

| June 30, 2015

On 5 July, the Greek people are called to make a decision of historical importance; a decision that will not only determine the future of the country, but the future of Europe as a whole. The institutions of the Troika are not only trying to destroy change in Greece, they are trying to undermine us all. Now is the time to raise our voices against this blackmail by the European elites.

Rally: Support Greek workers as they say ‘NO’ to the European Union’s austerity

Seven years after the 2008 international economic crisis, Greeks are taking the international lead in saying ‘NO’ to the austerity governments and banks have imposed on the rest of us to make us pay for their greed. (Greeks are suffering from a more extreme version of the austerity championed in Canada by Stephen Harper, provincial premiers, and the 1%.)

This Sunday, Greeks have a referendum to determine whether to reject the European Union’s plan for deepening the austerity that has plunged their country into a depression.

Opponents of austerity world-wide have already rallied to show their support for the leadership of the Greek left in the international battle against global austerity. Now the residents of Ottawa-Gatineau have a chance to add their voices to the international chorus of support for Greeks in opposing the austerity of the world’s 1%.

Join us for a Rally and March on Saturday July 4th at 11 AM to show your solidarity with the NO (‘OXI’ in Greek) position in Sunday’s Greek referendum.

Called by the Workers Action Group of Solidarity Against Austerity (SAA).
10:45am, Saturday July 4, 2015
Consulat Général de Grèce à Montréal, Montréal.

The Greek government has called upon its people to decide by means of a referendum to be held next Sunday whether to accept or reject the austerity terms proposed by the « Troika ». We, the organizers of this solidarity action, call upon all to respect thefundamental right of the Greek people and the decision that will emerge from the referendum. The only possible solution to the crisis in Greece must be based on respect for the people’s choice.
