Jobs Not War! Troops out of Afghanistan

Today, Liberals and Conservatives will be uniting to prolong the Canadian mission in Afghanistan until the end of 2011. At the same time as the government is endangering thousands of lives and wasting billions of dollars in Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of Canadian manufacturing jobs are being destroyed. Industrial workers are walking into unemployment without support, but there is no shortage of money for imperialist adventures.

No compromise! Topple the Conservatives! End Canadian imperialism in Afghanistan!

Like a bully on the playground Stephen Harper and his Conservative cronies have set an ultimatum to the people of Canada. Prior to the NATO conference set to be held in April, Harper's minority government plans to hold a vote to extend the combat mission in Afghanistan until the end of 2011.

The Class Struggle in Canada, Political Perspectives for 2007 -- Part One: The Canadian Economy

At each stage of the class struggle, it is necessary for the activists to take stock of the general situation. This is not simply an academic exercise. The purpose is to uncover the processes at work in society, in order to facilitate the work of labour militants who have no intention of being spectators of history. The goal is to understand and anticipate the direction of the class struggle. By uncovering the broader processes at work in society we can approximate in which sector the best gains are likely for the working class cause. The following article comes out of the discussions held at the 2007 Fightback conference and is part one of a three part document meant to orient the action of Canadian revolutionaries in 2007. See part 2 and part 3.

NDP MP Olivia Chow proposes National Food Programme: Good start, but only a band-aid solution

In the past few years, it seems as though all eyes are turned towards children and their inability to have decent, nutritious meals. Recently, NDP MP Olivia Chow has proposed a national food program for children under the age of eighteen that would provide a healthy snack, breakfast or lunch. However, the Tories would prefer do dole out tax cuts that would do very little for poor working class families. Although Chow's plan is a good first step, it does little at addressing the roots of malnutrition and poverty -- the problem of capitalism.

The Debt That Never Ends: CFS fails to inspire

On 7th February, the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) organized their annual “day of action” across Canada to protest against rising tuitions fees. In Toronto, over 2000 post-secondary school students from all over the province of Ontario gathered at the University of Toronto. For over a decade, the CFS has organized this same rally every 7th Feb. and for over a decade, they haven’t quite been able to navigate their way to their destination.
