Bullet #1405: A Day Without Immigrants

by Labor for Our Revolution | May 1, 2017

Millions of immigrants, both documented and undocumented, who lead hard working and productive lives, are also union members. Donald Trump launched his political campaign in 2015 with a racist attack on Mexican immigrants, painting them as rapists and murderers. He made attacks on our Muslim sisters and brothers his political trademark - even going so far as to propose a religious test for immigration.



LeftStreamed: May Day

April 30, 2017

For more than 100 years, May Day has symbolized the common struggles of workers around the globe. Why is it largely ignored in North America? The answer lies in part in American labour’s long repression of its own radical past, out of which international May Day was actually born a century ago. The seeds were sown in the campaign for the eight-hour work day. On May 1, 1886, hundreds of thousands of North American workers mobilized to strike.



What's New: Climate Change Is About Power

by | April 29, 2017

We need to take back the power that the fossil fuel industry has over society. Their core business model threatens all of us.



What's New: How Definancialization Could Save Greece -- and the World

| April 29, 2017

The word 'financialization' accurately captures a prominent aspect of contemporary capitalism: Over the last few decades, the lucrative financial sector has grown exponentially, to the point of dominating economies in the US and around the world. In this episode of Smart Talk, Andrew Mazzone and economist Costas Lapavitsas discuss how the profound effects of financialization have been felt in Greece, throughout Europe and here in America.



What's New: We Just Breached the 410 PPM Threshold for CO2

by Brian Kahn | April 29, 2017

On Tuesday, the Mauna Loa Observatory recorded its first-ever carbon dioxide reading in excess of 410 parts per million (it was 410.28 ppm in case you want the full deal). Carbon dioxide hasn’t reached that height in millions of years. It’s a new atmosphere that humanity will have to contend with, one that’s trapping more heat and causing the climate to change at a quickening rate.



What's New: People's Climate March 2017

| April 28, 2017

Now, more than ever, we have to stand up for our climate and our communities.To change everything, it’s going to take all of us. We march for our families. We march for our air, our water, and our land. We march for clean energy jobs and climate justice.



Bullet #1404: NAFTA Redux

by Ernie Tate | April 28, 2017

The new Trump administration has made the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Canada, Mexico and the United States, a major issue in its relations with its two neighbours. Recently, Trump has threatened to tear it up. With his standard nationalist demagogy, he claims 'previous bad trade deals,' have cost the United States many jobs as a result of American manufacturers moving plants off-shore. He is now in the process of telling Canada and Mexico the new administration is prepared to bully its way to a new and more favourable arrangement for itself.

: May Day

May Day
May Day was born out of militant working class struggle. First declared by the 2nd Internationale to commemorate the Haymarket Affair of May 1886, it is celebrated around the world as International Workers Day—not just in the centres of capital, but also in the peripheries (the so-called "Third World") where the contradictions between the exploiting class and the exploited are most often at their sharpest.

As the crisis of capitalism deepens, so increases the pressure, hardship, and violence upon the exploited and oppressed. Once again we find ourselves facing a resurgence of fascism. Let us gather this May 1st to affirm the unity of the international working class.

UP WITH THE PEOPLE! DOWN WITH THE BOURGEOISIE! WORKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE AGAINST WAR AND FASCISM!
