LeftStreamed: The Building Storm Against the TPP
October 23, 2016
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the one of the most recent of the neoliberal trade agreements being proposed. The final proposal was signed off in February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand by 12 countries – Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the USA, and Vietnam, after 7 years of negotiation. It awaits ratification in each country. It is a companion agreement to the existing NAFTA agreement, and the CETA and TTIP agreements that Canada and the U.S. are respectively negotiating with the EU.

On this episode of Talking Radical Radio, Scott Neigh speaks with Stefan Kipfer and Herman Rosenfeld. They are active with Free Transit Toronto, an activist network focused on a long-term vision of high quality and completely free public transit, as well as on supporting short-term organizing that seeks winnable immediate reforms that move in that direction. The ability to get from place to place is very important, and it's not an easy thing for a lot of people, particularly in a large and expensive city.

The government led by socialist António Costa and supported in parliament by the radical Left Bloco de Esquerda (BE) and Partido Comunista Português (PCP) presented the 2017 budget law Friday night. We are only at the beginning of an obstacle-strewn path, and yet, in spite of everything and contrary to all predictions, the majority continues to hold. Portugal’s government is now probably one of the few in Europe to give a practical meaning to the concept of the left.
Bullet #1318: The Future of the Euro Area
by Frederic Heine and Thomas Sablowski | October 21, 2016
The unequal development of the countries of the euro area since the outbreak of the crisis is causing increasing friction that threatens to tear the monetary union apart. Contrary to what many critics of the monetary union suggest, responsibility for this development lies not alone with its internal structure, but is rather a general feature of capitalist development.
What's New: The art of protest
by Nina Power | October 20, 2016
The relationship between art and protest has never been a stable one. It is also a relation that perhaps suffers from being posed in the abstract. Who could say what work artists would have made outside of a context of political turmoil, war and social unrest? And yet at the same time we often feel uneasy at demanding that art always be political, that it always respond to whatever historical events are emerging around it: can’t art also be an escape from violence, commentary, taking a stand?

When the strategic Syrian town of Manbij was liberated from ISIS in August Western media described an atmosphere of jubilance and relief. More than 250 fighters from the predominantly Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG/YPJ) and their multi-ethnic partners in the Syrian Democratic Forces gave their lives in this American-backed operation.

|: Confronting the State: Dissent and Advocacy in Healthcare|
A far-reaching conversation with Dr. Philip Berger, Medical Director, Inner City Health Program, St. Michael’s Hospital
Dissent, advocacy and a citizen’s responsibility have historically played a pivotal role in bringing about social and political changes. We are delighted to have Dr. Berger share with us 40 years of experience, which show how health care workers can confront and remedy inequities and unfairness in the health care system.
