  • On Palestine: A brief but essential update

    On Palestine is based upon a paradigmatic historical understanding of the ethnic cleansing of 1948, when more than half a million Arab people were forced from their homes to make way for a Jewish state. This understanding “clarifies” the connection between Zionist political ideology and the movement’s policies in the past and present.

  • Why I Support the BDS Movement Against Israel

    Human Rights

    The fight for the Palestinians is our fight. If the Palestinians are not liberated none of us will be liberated. We cannot pick and choose which of the oppressed are convenient or inconvenient to defend. We will stand with all of the oppressed or none of the oppressed. And when we stand with the oppressed we will be treated like the oppressed.

  • The Harper government and the ethnic cleansing of Palestine

    Canadian Politics

    The Harper government is aiding and abetting the Nakba or ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians through its stance and policies, reflecting the ‘new anti-Semitism’ trend that every Canadian tax payer and voter holds responsibility for directly or indirectly. It is time for Canadians to engage in the highest form of citizenry by saying “no” to the Harper government.

  • Kathleen Wynne: Please refuse ‘honour’ from Israel lobby group

  • Nothing is Right in the Middle East

    Middle East

    People are dying; people are displaced, discriminated against. There is no justice, no social justice for the majority, the same scenario like in Indonesia, like in sub-Continent, like in East Africa, like everywhere where the Western imperialism and neoliberalism managed to have their way.

  • Capitalists, Technocrats and Fanatics: The Ascent of a New Power Bloc

    The far-right is no longer at the margins of western political discourse. It is center-stage.The sweeping electoral victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India is the latest expression of the world-wide advance of a new power bloc which promises to impose a New World Order harnessing ethno-religious fanaticism and narrowly trained technocrats to capitalist absolutism.

  • Listen to Chomsky’s Montréal discussion period

    Listen to the discussion period from Noam Chomsky’s Montréal lecture in Oct. 2013, a discussion that touches upon the reality of growing police repression in Montréal under the municipal law P-6 that bans free protest, to a clear denunciation of the pending Quebec secularist charter.

  • Where’s my friend?

    Walid was taken into custody and transported in the bone-chilling cold of the night to Israel’s Ofer Military Detention Center where hundreds of Palestinians are detained, the vast majority with absolutely no knowledge of why. Help me get Walid back to his family and his desk so we can get back to the work of improving the Palestinian health care system.

  • The Second Wind of the Worldwide Social Justice Movement
