What's New: B.C. teachers' tentative agreement: Yes or No?

by Tara Ehrcke | September 17, 2014

Despite what I know was a herculean effort on the part of our bargaining team, I very much hope that BC teachers will vote no to the tentative agreement. After five weeks of strike, and twelve years of legal battles, this is not the deal that will restore sanity to public education and it is not a fair deal for teachers and students.



What's New: In Germany, the Answer to Global Warming Is Blowing in the Wind

by Tadzio Mueller | September 17, 2014

Occasionally, during certain peak times -- say, at noon on a windy, sunny day -- close to 100 percent of all electricity consumed in Germany comes from renewable energy sources. As most of the world's governments refuse to act while the threat of climate change intensifies, this might seem like a desert mirage. But the German embrace of renewables is the achievement of a broad social movement that dates back more than three decades.



What's New: The Rise of Philanthro-capitalism

by Ivan Drury | September 16, 2014

Late last winter at Vancouver's Maritime Labour Centre, city councillor Geoff Meggs spoke at the launch of a regional union-backed social justice organization called the Metro Vancouver Alliance. Meggs is a long-time anchor of the British Columbia labour movement. In the 1980s, he was the editor of the fishers' union newspaper and the personal editor for the legendary Canadian communist Ben Swankey.



What's New: An Education in Gentrification

by Justin Panos | September 16, 2014

In late May, a grade seven student at Nelson Mandela Park Public School in Toronto was suspended for throwing a water balloon at another student. The suspension occurred in the same week his mother was apprehended in a pre-dawn raid on their community housing building, the last building slated to be razed and rebuilt as part of the so-called revitalization of the Regent Park public housing project.



What's New: Zero Emissions Manifesto For Climate Justice Movement

| September 15, 2014

Zero has become the most important number for humanity. Why? Any chance of stabilizing the climate hinges on transitioning to zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as humanly possible. Simply slowing the rise of emissions will not work. For the first time, the world's leading climate authority, the IPCC has embraced a goal of near zero greenhouse gas emissions or below.



What's New: Scottish Socialist Party: What We're Thinking

| September 15, 2014

The Scottish Socialist Party is built on social solidarity and the spirit of resistance to oppression, injustice and nasty con tricks that strangle communities and people's lives. Life can be better than this. We have the resources, the know-how, we could be building a world based on people, not profit. We can, and should, be expanding the public sector, because more and more of us need it, and it creates jobs and training, it holds communities together and it supports families.

: Buses from Toronto to New York for the People's Climate March

This is an invitation to change everything. In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we'll take a stand to bend the course of history. We'll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of extreme climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

Details: We will be leaving Toronto on Friday, September 19th in the evening, meeting at 7pm to leave at 8pm at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst, just South of Bloor), and the buses will drive overnight. On Saturday, there will be many climate events in New York City, which we will inform you about closer to the time, although you're free to do as you please. Those who purchase a "Sleepover" ticket will be sleeping on the floor of the Church of St Luke and St Matthew, and both Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast will be provided. The PCM (march) itself is on Sunday starting at 11:30am, and we will be marching in a group together (meet-up location TBA). We will then depart from NYC on Sunday evening, meeting at 5pm to leave by 6pm, and return to Toronto very early on Monday morning (the exact time of arrival depends on traffic and border crossing, but we should (hopefully) be back in Toronto downtown by 6am).

You must be 18+ to join us. Under 18s will be considered, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please contact us, as logistics need to be worked out on a case-by-case basis.
