Environmental justice and the Green New Deal 1.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Jennifer Scarlott There are a number of ecosocialist responses to the Green New Deal, converging for the most part around the recognition that though it is not the Green New Deal most of us would prefer, it is the opportunity to move the paralysis of the climate change movement very far in the right -- left -- direction that our times so desperately need. This is a series of essays in six voices , from longtime activists who participate in the North American ecosocialist network System Change Not Climate Change . Each was challenged to make their point in 500 words or less. It was intended as a constructive contribution to the wonderful storm of discussion that the Green New Deal has opened up. Read the full series here . The Green New Deal, like some sort of eco-superhero, has arrived at the eleventh hour. Naomi Klein writes hopefully of it as a plan to address global warming that at long last matches the scale of the crisis. Klein (co-author of the Green New Deal-esque " Leap Manifesto ") has reason ...

Obituary: Remembering Canadian activist David Vasey 5.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
rabbe staff Environmental activist and anti-fascist David Vasey passed away on January 27. He was 40 years old. Vasey was a committed fighter against injustice. He was first thrown into the public spotlight in 2010, when he was arrested and detained under the Public Works Protection Act during protests against the G20 summit in Toronto. Vasey was the first person to be charged under this bylaw. Following his arrest, he was held in a wire cage that served as a temporary detention area during the summit protests. However, when Vasey later appeared in court, he found his charge had mysteriously vanished from the court's computer system. "We were all excited to go to trial," Vasey said at the time. "That it was lost was pretty convenient for the powers that be." This run-in with heavy-handed policing didn't hinder Vasey's commitments to social and environmental activism. He stepped back into the public eye in 2011, when he played a leading role in organizing the Occupy Toronto demonstration. "Don't ...

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 ...

Father Phil Schmitter and other advocates from a predominately Black neighborhood in Flint, Michigan filed a civil rights complaint with the EPA more than 20 years before the city became a symbol of environmental racism. The EPA finally completed its investigation into the complaint last year, and only after environmental justice groups took the agency to federal court.
