What's New: From direct action to organization, lessons from Canada's Line 9 sit-ins

by Umair Muhammad | July 24, 2014

On July 14 a dozen or so activists staged an occupation of a worksite in Toronto associated with Enbridge's Line 9, an oil pipeline that runs across the Province of Ontario. Double the number of activists, including some from the July 14 occupation, disrupted work at another pipeline site outside of Cambridge, Ontario on July 17 and 18. Almost 40 years in age, Line 9 was built to carry conventional oil from Montreal to Southern Ontario.

What's New: A Renewed Strategic Perspective on Socialist Work in the Labor Movement

by Solidarity Labor Commission | July 24, 2014

This February, the Solidarity Labor Commission held a two-day retreat at which we reflected on Solidarity's labor work and the rank-and-file union perspective that has guided it for decades. This outline of a renewed strategic perspective is what emerged from our discussions.

What's New: Remember When - Social Planning for Canada

| July 23, 2014

Hidden away in the dusty corners of Nova Scotia's university libraries is an old lefty tome of a book called Social Planning for Canada. The book was first published in 1935, during the depths of the Great Depression. Back then, capitalism appeared to many to be on its last legs.

Bullet #1013: From Bolivia, a Trade-Union Appeal for International Anti-Capitalist Solidarity

| July 22, 2014

As a follow-up to the June summit meeting of the G77 + China leaders, held in Santa Cruz, the Bolivian government and the Bolivian Workers Central sponsored an "Anti-Imperialist International Trade Union Conference" in Cochabamba, June 30-July 2. The conference was attended by representatives of unions in 22 countries, affiliated with the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU).

What's New: New issue of Briarpatch: The Peoples' Social Forum

| July 21, 2014

Our first ever colour issue includes critical stories on the Peoples' Social Forum, queer mothering, gay sex on public transit, Indigenous land struggles, Canadian radicals and the Spanish Civil War, and a photo essay on a Burmese migrant village built on a dump in Thailand.

Bullet #1012: The Outsize (un)Importance of the Tar Sands

by Michal Rozworski | July 20, 2014

It's easy to overestimate the importance of the tar sands to the Canadian economy. Tar sands and their pipelines are, after all, hailed by the ruling Conservatives, sections of the business press and the ever-present oil lobby as this young century's 'nation-building' project.

What's New: Government of India must stand up for Palestine

| July 19, 2014

The murderous attack of Israel on Gaza that began on 3 July is like all Israel's attacks on Palestine without justification and lacking in proportion. There is no evidence that the three Israeli teenagers who went missing on 12 June and whose bodies were found on 30 June were killed by Hamas.
