Open letter to York University: Settle with CUPE 3903 now! 7.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Maya Bhullar The recent strike at York University is being called the longest labour dispute at the institution, and the longest strike at an English-speaking university in Canada. It has been used by the provincial Liberals to attack the NDP, however the issues are about precarious work and need to be addressed . Instead of taking on these issues, the York University administration has been acting unilaterally and recently walked away from a CUPE 3903 offer which was essentially most of what they wanted.    Over 300 university full-time or retired professors, librarians and archivists at York University have signed the letter below demanding that the York University President and Board of Governers settle with CUPE 3903 now. They shared this letter with rabble.ca.   Open letter to the President of York University and the Board of Governors:  Settle with CUPE 3903 now! We, the undersigned full-time or retired professors, librarians and archivists at York University, are deeply concerned with the ...

Before the US Approves New Uranium Mining, Consider Its Toxic Legacy 28.2.2018 Truthout.com
Support from readers keeps Truthout 100 percent independent. If you like what you're reading, make a donation! Uranium -- the raw material for nuclear power and nuclear weapons -- is having a moment in the spotlight. Companies such as  Energy Fuels, Inc.  have played  well-publicized roles in lobbying the Trump administration to reduce federal protection for  public lands  with uranium deposits. The Defense Department's Nuclear Posture Review calls for  new weapons production  to expand the US nuclear arsenal, which could spur new domestic uranium mining. And the Interior Department is advocating more domestic uranium production, along with other materials identified as " critical minerals ."  What would expanded uranium mining in the US mean at the local level? I have studied the legacies of past uranium mining and milling in Western states for over a decade. My  book  examines dilemmas faced by uranium communities caught between harmful legacies of previous mining booms and the potential promise of new ...

How Donald Trump Plans to Enlist Fossil Fuels in the Struggle for Global Dominance 12.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Choose journalism that empowers movements for social, environmental and economic justice: Support the independent media at Truthout! The new US energy policy of the Trump era is, in some ways, the oldest energy policy on Earth. Every great power has sought to mobilize the energy resources at its command, whether those be slaves, wind-power, coal, or oil, to further its hegemonic ambitions. What makes the Trumpian variant -- the unfettered exploitation of America's fossil-fuel reserves -- unique lies only in the moment it's being applied and the likely devastation that will result, thanks not only to the 1950s-style polluting of America's air, waters, and urban environment, but to the devastating hand it will lend to a globally warming world. Last month, if you listened to the chatter among elite power brokers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, you would have heard a lot of bragging about the immense progress being made in renewable energy. "My government has planned a major campaign," ...
