  • The Greek Debacle

    Economic Crisis

    The Greek crisis has provoked a predictable mixture of indignation and self-satisfaction in Europe, alternatively lamenting the harshness of the settlement imposed on Athens or celebrating the last-minute retention of Greece within the European family, or both at once.

  • Federal leaders must come up with a substitute for oil

    Canadian Politics

    It is in good taste to say that economy and environment should not conflict. However, we often overlook the contradictions between the imperative of unlimited growth of tar sands operations and the fight against climate change.

  • Noam Chomsky: The World in August, 2015

    Human Rights

    Hopes for the future are always about the same: courageous people, often under severe duress, refusing to bow to illegitimate authority and persecution, others devoting themselves to support and to combating injustice and violence, young people who sincerely want to change the world.

  • Greece: Alternatives and Exiting the Eurozone

    Europe

    To be effective, strict control over capital movements and foreign exchange must be established; a genuine alternative logic can be triggered and Greece can finally liberate itself from its creditors’ control. The peoples of Europe could again believe in a change that favors justice.

  • The Real Plan B: The New Greek Marathon

    Europe

    None of this can happen unless Syriza as a party develops the orientation and capacities to lead the Greek state and society in this direction. We have met with people in the party and social movements who are concerned that Syriza falls well short in this respect.

  • Stop lying to the Greeks — life without the euro is great

    Economic Crisis

    What I find amazing about the euro-fanatics is that they just don’t seem to care about facts at all.

  • In Ecuador, Fight for Mankind; In Greece, Fight for Greece!

    Social Movements

    And so, while Greece votes on its financial future, Ecuador is facing one of the most vicious subversions in its history. It is facing it alone. It appears that everyone from non-Latin American left who matters is now in Athens. As far as I know, there are no solidarity ‘delegates’ descending on Quito!

  • Why I’m sitting in for climate action

    Environment

    In October, our generation will head to the polls. While politicians bank on our supposed apathy, we will turn up en masse to vote for this future we believe in. We will remember the moments when climate change touched our own communities, and, this time, we will cast our ballots for real climate leadership.

  • Beyond teamsters and turtles: Jobs, justice, climate

    Social Movements

    Those of us who have been fighting for social justice all our lives now have an opportunity to create a new vision of a just and caring society. A society where caring for each other, the land and the creatures that share it with us is a powerful transformative idea that can appeal to a majority of people around the world.

  • The Lonely American

    Culture

    We must connect with those around us. It is only the communal that will save us. It is only the communal that will allow us to build a movement to resist. And it is only the communal that will sustain us through mutual aid as climate change and economic collapse increasingly dominate our future.
