  • Dispatches from the Detriot USSF #2

    Unlike the World Social Forum and Social Forums in other countries,the USSF has few NGOs here and no celebrity stars. These were mostly people from local groups of grassroot activists.

  • How the ‘black bloc’ protected the G20

    One of the most intriguing things about the chaos of the G20 in Toronto has been the effectiveness with which the black-clad violent individuals (who we’ll indulge by calling the ‘black bloc’) have contributed to the protection of the G20, its message, and what it represents.

  • Web exclusive:Witness to the Saturday Protests

    I can still remember, as an undergrad, the debate at York University about the War Measures Act in 1972. That will give you some idea of my age and that I am not a black-shirted anarchist.

  • Frontline reports from the G20

    Although there was an immense amount of substantive, fascinating, and productive activity during the entire week by the network of labour-antipoverty-antiwar-indigenous issues-environment (extraction industries including tar sands and Barrick Gold)-gender, much associated with the week-long networking and protests was presented in a very dismissive, trivializing way by the major media.

    Thousands of books describe various aspects of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict … This is the first book to focus on Canadian support for the dispossession of Palestinians, for a state based on one religion, and for the last major European colonial project.

  • Review: One of the Boys: Homosexuality in the Military During World War II

    Through careful and painstaking research, using archival evidence including court martial proceedings and interviews, Paul Jackson writes into World War II a social history of homosexuality in the Canadian Forces – a social history that had been, as he notes, ignored by military historians.

  • Queer Liberation: The Social Organization of Forgetting and the Resistance of Remembering

    In much of the Left and within gay/lesbian communities our rich queer histories of struggle have been forgotten, creating a kind of social and historical amnesia.

  • Queers Against Apartheid: From South Africa to Israel

    Like South Africa twenty-five years ago, Israel today portrays itself as a progressive liberal democracy, an endangered island of modernity in a backward and hostile region. The existence of a gay rights movement in Israel is deployed as another example of this modernity.
