Latin Waves : interviews author/activist Yves Engler

Date Uploaded: 2018-03-18 16:22:29.0
Yves Engler (born 1979) is a Montreal writer and political activist. In addition to seven published books, Engler’s writings have appeared in the alternative press and in mainstream publications such as The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen and Ecologist. His The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy book was on a short list for the Quebec Writers' Federation Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction along with two other books.

Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Yves about Canadian foreign policy and the hypocrisy of our government putting sanctions on countries like Venezuela while excusing gross human rights violations in the coup governments of Honduras and Haiti, how Canadians should be paying attention to agreements like NAFTA and how those trade agreements are undemocratic and give
corporations to much power over our lives, environment and working conditions.

How as progressive we should use our independent judgement on agreements like NAFTA and not just support them because Trump doesn't like them.

New World Notes: #524 -- No Nostalgia for Obama, Please

Date Uploaded: 2018-03-18 13:38:40.0
A brief chat by KD (on Trump vs Obama) is followed by a prescient talk by NOAM CHOMSKY. Chomsky spoke in November 2008--after Obama's election but before his inauguration.

Chomsky explains why our 2008 election was far less democratic than recent elections in Haiti and Bolivia--and why the Obama administration would likely serve the financial elite at the expense of ordinary citizens.

Unfortunately, Chomsky proved right on every count.

Rank and file teachers in West Virginia mobilized throughout the state and shutting down the schools in support of pay raises for some of the poorest paid teachers in the U.S. They converged on and occupied the state capital building to demand a living wage and forced the state government to improve their meager pay and freeze proposed Increases in their health care premiums " and all the state workers gained from the settlement forced by the courageous wildcat strikers.
While the teachers unions had tried through now familiar lobbying and by
mobilization to fight for better wages
and benefits their methods proved not successful, stirring the rank & file to adopt a more militant approach. The workers organized and struck on their own initiative rekindling the states long
and militant history of workers struggles.

Then within days of the W. Virginia strike, certainly inspired by their sisters and brothers teachers there, teachers in Oklahoma which borders W. Virginia
announced their intention to walk off
the job in order to win higher pay. And, in
Arizona teachers turned their campuses into a sea of red last Wed. demanding better pay. Inside the Facebook group that organized the #RedForEd campaign, a full-throttle conversation of what to do next is underway.

Workers have been under brutal attack and unionization has been in decline for over 40 years. The employer offensive against unions has included all-out war
against militant action & especially strikes. Yet it has only been in the periods of struggle and strikes for the private sector in the 1930s and late 40s and the public sector in the 1960s that unions have grown and workers prospered. Now the West Virginia workers are sparking workers across the land to embrace their rekindled militacy.

Subversion #1312: Podcast - IWD BNE Clusterfuck, Kurdish Women Unite, ACAB

Date Uploaded: 2018-03-17 07:10:00.0

International Women’s Day in Brisbane by all reports was an absolute clusterfuck. It is disappointing that so much effort has been put into building up the event, but the organisers chose to ignore the feelings of a section of the community.

I read a beautiful statement from Kurdish women to the world.

And in Bad Cop No Donut the police have been pretty busy fucking things up this week. And fucking vegetables.
