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

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.
What's New: Two-Tier Is a No-Go!
by CUPW | July 27, 2016
We have taken a strong stand against two-tier wages, benefits and pensions throughout our history. CUPW has stood strong on this issue and we will continue to do so. The current wage structure in the Urban Ops collective agreement may not meet the definition of two-tier because all employees will eventually reach the same maximum rate but it is not a fair system.
What's New: Why you should converge on Philadelphia
by Todd Chretien | July 27, 2016
If, after the horror show in Cleveland, you're still not convinced that Clintonite Neoliberal Triangulation is the cure for Trumpist Racist Fever, then you're in luck -- because Hillary won't be the only show in town when the Democratic National Convention (DNC) comes to Philadelphia next week.

|: 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.”
