Bullet #1253: The U.S. Empire's Culture Industry, at Large
by Tanner Mirrlees | May 3, 2016
For readers immersed in the annals of Empire, it is well known that the United States is no ordinary country in the world system. The United States is a unique Empire whose national security strategy since 1945 has relied upon a mix of diplomacy and brute military force to make the world safe for American capitalism around the world, and more importantly, made the world over for global capitalism.
What's New: What is to be Done with the Banks?
| May 2, 2016
Nine years after the outbreak of the financial crisis that continues to produce damaging social effects through the austerity policies imposed on victim populations, it’s time to take another look at the commitments that were made at that time by bankers, financiers, politicians and regulatory bodies. Those four players have failed fundamentally in the promises they made in the wake of the crisis – to moralise the banking system, separate commercial banks from investment banks, end exorbitant salaries and bonuses, and finally finance the real economy.
What's New: Breaking the cycle of exploitation
by Sean Burton | May 2, 2016
There has been a tremendous outpouring of anger and resentment since Newfoundland and Labrador's provincial budget was announced on April 14. As predicted, the Liberal Government has introduced a budget that amounts to a punishment of the working class of the province: higher taxes, special levies, and cuts to numerous important social services, with many more likely on the way later this year.

Socialist Interventions #15: May Day: Workers' Struggles, International Solidarity, Political Aspirations
by Eleanor Marx, Rosa Luxemburg, Clara Zetkin et al | May 1, 2016
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.

|Public Exposures: The Art-Activism of Condé + Beveridge (1976-2016)|
This multi-gallery survey spans the career of the political-art duo, from their rejection of the New York art scene in the 70s and move to Canada, where they've collaborated with unions, communities and artist-run centres, to a recent work about climate change and hockey. They originally adopted the staged-photo format to protect unionists who feared identification by management, but soon found the strategy allowed them to push their social justice message further. They've devoted their life's work to exploring the intersections of wage labour and creativity.
Exhibition runs May 14 – June 25, 2016
Opening Reception at Trinity Square Video (401 Richmond St W. Suite 121), Saturday May 14, 2-4 PM
