Socialism

  • The Most Dangerous Woman in America

    Kshama Sawant, the socialist on the City Council, is up for re-election this year. Since joining the council in January of 2014 she has helped push through a gradual raising of the minimum wage to $15 an hour in Seattle. She has expanded funding for social services and blocked, along with housing advocates, an attempt by the Seattle Housing Authority to allow a rent increase of up to 400 percent.

  • Socialism Will Continue in Cuba

    The unshakable faith in victory that Fidel instilled in all of us shall continue to lead our people in the defense and further improvement of the work of its Revolution.

  • Real Democracy and the Capture of Institutions

    It is no longer enough to win over civil society, occupy public spaces, take to the streets, carry out symbolic actions, prevent evictions, or to win plebiscites. In Spain movements for ‘real democracy’ are setting a course to capture institutions – albeit with the aim to recreate these institutions in a constitutive process in the interests of ‘real democracy’.

  • Working Class Politics After the NDP

    The issue that we can’t ignore this Labour Day is the disorientation in our movement’s politics. List the issues working people are most concerned about today and two things especially stand out. First, how fundamental the actions of the Canadian state are to what is most important to us. Second, how distressingly unable we have been to influence those actions.

  • False hopes or political strategy?

    We are in the midst of a fundamental turning point in the earth’s environment from climate change, with many catastrophic consequences unfolding, from species extinction to habitat loss to enormous obstacles and costs for human adaptation; and the Left remains, in almost all zones of the world, but especially in North America, on the margins as a social force in the face of a reconstructed and more authoritarian neoliberalism. How to respond in such a situation?

  • Unmaking global capitalism

    The fundamental contradiction of capitalism, Marx and Engels argued, was that as capitalists brought workers together to increase profits they opened the door to workers discovering their own potential. Capitalism created its own gravediggers. Sam Gindin explores limits and opportunities to make digging a little easier.

  • Quebec election: a seismic shift within the independence movement?

    The election of a Liberal majority government has been widely interpreted as a major victory for the federal regime and quite possibly the death knell of the fifty-year-old mass movement for Quebec independence, but what do things actually look like for the socialist Left in Québec?

  • Hidden histories and political legacies of the Canadian anti-apartheid movement

    The history of those ordinary Canadians who fought against apartheid has tragically been lost, and those who decried Mandela as a communist terrorist elevated as humanitarian heroes in his passing. Canadian Dimension collective member Chris Webb unpacks the hidden history of Canada’s anti-apartheid movement.

  • Grassroots movement needed, says Labour Congress candidate Husseini

    Regardless of the Canadian Labour Congress presidential outcome, the need for a grassroots labour revival is clear. The stakes are simply too high not to rebuild from the ground up.

  • A grassroots perspective on the Québec elections

    In many respects, nothing has changed following the April 7 Québec elections. Big business remains in power, only its colour has altered from light blue to a Liberal shade of red.
