Host Brendan Stone and journalist Ann Garrison reflect on the growth of the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn. From the standpoint of North Americans interested in progressive change, it is notable that Corbyn revitalized the Labour Party by rejecting the imperial agenda of war and corporate globalization, and speaking directly to working-class voters who had been abandoned by their supposed representatives.

Please note the following correction. Ann Garrison has noted:

R2P was not added to the UN Charter. Instead member nations passed a resolution committing to join in actions organized by the UNSC to prevent genocide and mass atrocities committed by a government against its own people.

This account of how the resolution has been invoked notes the failure to agree on Syria:

"The Security Council, however, has not always found room for agreement in response to responsibility to protect situations. In the case of Syria, on 4 February 2012 the Security Council voted on a draft resolution backing an Arab League plan to resolve the crisis in the country, where UN officials estimated that security forces had killed well over 7,500 people since the popular uprising began in March 2011. The draft resolution called on the Syrian Government to cease violence against civilians and withdraw its armed forces. Thirteen of the Council's 15 members voted in favour of the text, but China and Russia exercised their vetoes and therefore blocked the adoption of the resolution."
