What's New: Marx and Engels papers completely available online

| August 30, 2015

The original papers of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, World Classics, are digitized and now online accessible. The papers can be consulted from anywhere and by anyone who logs into the catalogue website of the International Institute of Social History. Access is open and free. These famous and precious archives are used intensively by highly specialized researchers. They are among the most influential pieces of writing in world history and still play a major role in the rethinking of capitalism, labour, economic crises and revolution.



Bullet #1157: Signs of Regression: The NDP and Palestine

by Dan Freeman-Maloy | August 30, 2015

A friend recently expressed his confusion about the outrage over the death of Ali Dawabsheh, the 18-month-old Palestinian toddler who was killed last month when Jewish settlers firebombed his home in the occupied West Bank. (The child's father was also badly burned in the attack, and eight days later died from his injuries.) An attack that kills a sleeping toddler is surely horrific.



What's New: Zimmerwald 1915: A new socialist resistance against war

by John Riddell | August 29, 2015

The Zimmerwald Conference, a small gathering held in Switzerland 100 years ago, on September 5-8, 1915, marked a turning point in the world socialist movement. Socialists from many countries issued an appeal that united antiwar socialists during World War 1 and helped prepare the revolutions with which it concluded. To mark the Zimmerwald centenary I am presenting three major documents of the conference in new translations, together with my short introduction.



What's New: The challenge of Sanders and Corbyn to the extreme centre

| August 29, 2015

Over the past year, unlikely challengers have emerged to the dominant politics of the center-left in both the U.S. and the UK. Jeremy Corbyn is looking increasingly poised to win the leadership of the UK Labour Party next month. Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic, Bernie Sanders keeps rising in the polls, drawing large crowds and making Hillary Clinton's coronation as Democratic presidential candidate a bit uncertain.



What's New: The Canadian War on Science

by James O'Grady | August 28, 2015

This is a brief chronology of the current Conservative Canadian government’s long campaign to undermine evidence-based scientific, environmental and technical decision-making. It is a government that is beholden to big business, particularly big oil, and that makes every attempt to shape public policy to that end. It is a government that fundamentally doesn’t believe in science. It is a government that is more interested in keeping its corporate masters happy than in protecting the environment.



What's New: Palestinian liberation is key matter of our time

| August 28, 2015

More than 1,000 Black activists, artists, scholars, students and organizations have released this statement reaffirming their “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and commitment to the liberation of Palestine’s land and people.” The list of signatories includes scholar-activists Angela Davis and Cornel West, political prisoners Mumia Abu-Jamal and Sundiata Acoli, rappers Talib Kweli, Boots Riley and Jasiri X and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.



What's New: The case for a $15 minimum wage the NDP should make

by Michal Rozworski | August 28, 2015

Of all of the NDP's campaign promises so far, one of the simplest has gotten the most press: the $15 minimum wage for workers in federally regulated sectors. This campaign plank should be an easy sell for the NDP, yet Conservative and Liberal attacks have managed to undermine it. The way it's been presented has left it open to attack, but this needn't be so.

Forum: Chris Hedges: The Great Unraveling

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about "The Great Unraveling."

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy Movement. In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians and literary figures, he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges’ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.

The event is organized by Canadian Dimension magazine with support from Centre for Social Justice | www.eventbrite.ca | Facebook event
