The Socialist Action webcast series has returned for a new season, featuring a number of great panel guests discussing a number of pressing topics. This season, Canadian Socialist Action will be joined by members from across the country and around the globe, as we discuss important political, social, and economic issues.
A new season of the Canadian Socialist Action webcast kicks off with our discussion on 'Capitalism and the Environment – on the Eve of COP 27' with Jeff Sparrow, Yvonne Hanson, and Victor Morgan. Climate catastrophe is not a theory. It is here and now. How did this happen, and what should be done about it? Watch the recorded presentation anytime on the Canadian Socialist Action YouTube Channel.
Pierre Poilevre, the hard right-wing career politician, captured the federal Conservative Party leadership with 70.7% of the votes cast on September 10, 2022. This result reveals that a significant faction of the Canadian ruling class wants to pursue an aggressive austerity agenda, albeit under the populist guise of cutting taxes, while fanning the flames of bigotry and promoting conspiracy theories.
On September 18, 2022, rallies and marches took place across the Canadian state to demand "Status for All!", for migrant workers' rights and to end the super-exploitation of undocumented workers from abroad.
Last Monday, Socialist Action took part in the 150th Labour Day Parade. Organized by the Toronto and York Region Labour Council. Socialist Action was joined by members of the Municipal Socialist Alliance and over 20,000 union members from both the public and private sectors. Comrades and allies marched from Queen and University to the entrance of the CNE. Chanting, singing, waving flags and banners, and even posing for pictures along the way.
Socialist Action Canada joined with Socialist Action USA and many others to participate in this protest on September 9th in Manhattan, New York. The action included the reading aloud of the names of hundreds of victims of police murder.
