What's New: Marxism and the Anthropocene
by Camilla Royle | July 30, 2016
As you read this article every breath you take in contains about 400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide, around a third more than your great grandparents breathed 100 years ago. As well as leading to potentially catastrophic global warming, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has changed the way plants photosynthesise and has also made seas and lakes more acidic, more so than they have been for the last 800,000 years.
What's New: Art Against Global Apartheid
| July 30, 2016
Red Wedge presented two panels at this year’s Historical Materialism conference in Toronto. The first panel was designed to expound on the theme of our second issue, 'Art Against Global Apartheid'. Its starting point was that the neoliberal era – an era of austerity, profound inequality and a rate of exploitation previously unseen in human history – has dramatically changed both the world and the interaction of art with that world.
Bullet #1286: Turkey: Atlanticism versus Rabiism
by Sungur Savran | July 29, 2016
The dramatic events that unfolded in Turkey on the night of 15 to 16 July have been excessively confined to the internecine struggle of two different Islamic currents, that of the AKP under the iron fist of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and its latter day nemesis the Gulen fraternity. This is misleading in two senses. On the one hand, it hides from view the distinct possibility or even more and more certitude that other tendencies within the Turkish armed forces were involved in the planning if not the final execution of the failed putsch. On the other, it prevents us from seeing the more fundamental contradiction that besets Turkey today – a contradiction that relates to the country's position in the world system.
What's New: Real Peoples Media - this week
| July 28, 2016
July 1 this year marks the 149th year that we have been colonized by Britain under the British North America Act of 1867, Canada's first Constitution. The primary purpose of colonization was dispossessing Indigenous Peoples of our land so the settlers could economically enjoy and benefit from our land. Colonial dispossession can be illustrated by the fact when you add up all the Indian Reserves in Canada they total only 0.2% of Canada.
What's New: No More Pipelines
by Daniel Cayley-Daoust | July 28, 2016
On Thursday July 21st, a Husky Energy owned pipeline spilled between 200,000 and 250,000 litres of heavy oil mixed with diluents in the North Saskatchewan River near Lloydminster and Maidstone, Saskatchewan. An official from the petroleum and natural gas branch of the province’s economy ministry said that the pipeline was built in 1997 and was carrying heavy oil.

We come from 43 nations, 4 continents. We have different cultures and backgrounds, we speak different languages. Despite diversity, there’s something that brings us together, apart from belonging to the same generation: the systematic violence to which we are subjected. This condition shapes our identity and expresses internationally in the struggle, as the way in which the youth resists imperialism.
What's New: President Obama is my last hope for freedom
by Leonard Peltier | July 27, 2016
Sisters, brothers, friends and supporters: June 26th marks 41 years since the long summer day when three young men were killed at the home of the Jumping Bull family, near Oglala, during a firefight in which I and dozens of others participated. While I did not shoot (and therefore did not kill) FBI agents Ronald Williams and Jack Coler, I nevertheless have great remorse for the loss of their young lives.

|: Moncada Celebration|
* Music, dance, cash bar, raffle, door prize
* Words from the Cuban Consulate
* Special Video presentation of Fidel Castro’s 90th Birthday
On July 26, 1953, 135 young revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro boldly assaulted the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, the country’s second-largest military fortress, while two smaller groups led by Abel Santamaria and Raúl Castro targeted important adjacent buildings. Though the Moncada Barracks did not fall, the revolutionary action was highly significant. It signalled the future battles that were to triumph in 1959 when the Cuban people celebrated the defeat of Fulgencio Batista’s brutal dictatorship. As Fidel declared later, “Moncada taught us to turn setbacks into victories.”
