Neoliberalism is to blame for stalled climate action 23.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
This article was first published in The Intercept on August 3, 2018 . Published by  rabble.ca  with permission from The Intercept. On Sunday, August 1, the entire New York Times Magazine was composed of just one article on a single subject: the failure to confront the global climate crisis in the 1980s, a time when the science was settled and the politics seemed to align. Written by Nathaniel Rich, this work of history is filled with insider revelations about roads not taken that, on several occasions, made me swear out loud. And lest there be any doubt that the implications of these decisions will be etched in geologic time, Rich's words are punctuated with full-page aerial photographs by George Steinmetz that wrenchingly document the rapid unravelling of planetary systems, from the rushing water where Greenland ice used to be to massive algae blooms in China's third largest lake. The novella-length piece represents the kind of media commitment that the climate crisis has long deserved but almost never ...

Trudeau gaslights Canadian women and ignores their safety 26.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Two weeks ago, a new study by the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability confirmed the state of domestic terrorism against women in this land. A woman is murdered by a man every other day in Canada, with at least 78 known acts of femicide up to July 1 (the numbers are likely higher given that it is based largely on media reports). A disproportionate number of those murdered were Indigenous women. That very same day, there was audible silence from the self-proclaimed "feminist" Trudeau government. Instead of declaring that the time had come to finally launch a National Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls (NAP), Trudeau was in Latvia, trying to match the toxic masculinity of Donald Trump by whipping out hundreds of millions of dollars to continue funding Canadian troops to engage in endless war games through the year 2023 against a non-existent threat to the people of this land. Indeed, instead of showing solidarity with Canadian women, Trudeau chose ...

Ontario fightback: Lessons from organizing workshops across Ontario 18.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Maya Bhullar In the wake of the recent Ontario elections  Briarpatch Magazine , the Council of Canadians , Solidarity Ottawa and the Fight for $15 and Fairness  organized panels with grassroots organizers in Toronto and Ottawa asking "what's next."  I listened to all three panels and have captured quotes around six themes to provide a "teaser" and share some great points. I encourage you to scroll down to the end of this article to find links which allow you to listen to each panel. The thoughtful and generous insights from inspiring frontline organizers Lindsay (Beze) and Vanessa Gray , Felicia Samuel , John Clarke , JP Hornick , Tori Cress , Pam Frache , Deena Ladd , Doug Nesbitt ,  Karen Cocq , Martin Lukacs  and others are worth listening to.  The next four years will be an important test for Ontarians. We will either see the most regressive policies Ontario has ever seen or we will build a movement which defeats anyone who is attacking the land, environment, and people in this province.    ​We must ...

Ontario fightback: Progressive MPPs headed to Queens Park speak out 28.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Maya Bhullar On June 29 Ontarians will have a new premier who takes power with a Progressive Conservative majority government. However, Ontarians also elected some amazing progressive candidates, and at rabble.ca we intend to amplify what people are doing to stand for what Ontarians want and to continue to support progressive change. This is the first of a new Activist Toolkit series on Ontario's fightback against proposed cutbacks and attacks on the things you believe are important. Tell us about what you are doing by sending an email to maya[at]rabble.ca. To launch the series, we reached out to all the progressive MPPs who were elected and asked them three questions: why they ran, what they heard at doors, and what we can do to help them stand for Ontarians. After a hard-fought campaign, the slate of MPPs headed to Queens Park are busy and need time to recuperate. We are so grateful to (in no particular order) France Gélinas (Nickel Belt), Peter Tabuns (Toronto Danforth), Laura Mae Lindo  (Kitchener ...
