Factories without bosses:the response of the popular classes to the Argentine economic crisis of December 2001 - PanQuébec Tour of meetings (Take 2)

We are going through one of the worst economic crises in the history of capitalism and the answers provided by the state and its lackeys are illusory. In addition, faced with this impasse, our leaders are trying to shift the entire burden of the crisis to the workers.

How can we respond differently to this economic crisis? Can we learn from the experiences of struggles that have happened elsewhere in the world?

To consider these issues, the Libertarian Communist Union (UCL) is organizing a panQuébec tour this winter of meetings on the response of Argentine popular classes in the face of a serious economic crisis that shook the country in the early 2000s.

From 18 January to 12 February, a militant from the anarchist organization Red Libertaria (Argentina) will travel to different cities of Quebec and Ontario (I hope-Molly ) to talk about this subject. He will discuss different forms of resistance developed by the Argentine people to counter the effects of the crisis retaking factories, creating self-managed cooperatives, etc.. and the involvement of anarchists in these different struggles.

The tour will stop in several cities: Montreal, St-Jerome, Quebec, Saguenay, Saint-Félicien, Drummondville, Sherbrooke, etc.. Be alert! The places and dates of each conference will be publicized soon.

imageThere’s No Hope Above Us, Only Amongst Us Nov 22 by Thomas 0 comments

With the recent re-election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, many are rejoicing and breathing a sigh of relief. There’s a widespread belief amongst those who elected him that he is looking out for us and will fight for us. Unfortunately, besides a few token gestures that may occur during the next four years, his tenure in office is likely to be both a disappointment and one in which the interests of the elite classes are served at the expense of the popular classes. As described below, this has to do with structural, historical and social factors that have been ensuring, and continue to ensure, that this is the case regardless of who is in office. However, there is hope; we’re just looking for it in the wrong places.

textReflections on Stiglitz article: "Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1%" Jun 03 by Thomas 0 comments

A family member of mine recently sent me an article from Vanity Fair by economist Joseph Stiglitz about the problem of elite control within the United States.  While it's refreshing that the article is talking about the problem to a mainstream audience, it stops short of delving deep enough the problem at a systemic level, and perhaps more importantly: doesn't address the need for complete systemic change.  The broader points that Stiglitz brings up are also supported by the Economic Policy Institute - an economics resource that has some great research reports on the topic of how government policy has favored the elite - including: a report showing how the budget cuts proposed in comparison to the tax cuts given and another showing how recently all economic gains have gone to the top 10% (with over 75% of those gains going to the top 1%). 

imageWall Street Already Finding Loopholes in Financial Reform Legislation Nov 17 by John E Jacobsen 0 comments

Continuing in the tradition of watered down, pro-corporate legislation that the Obama administration is becoming infamous for, new reports are surfacing that banks and financial institutions may continue to get away with the same risky trading and investment practices that landed us in a recession.

Like the watered down health care reforms, or the pathetic Credit Card Act, the recent Dodd-Frank financial regulations signed into law by Obama are quickly showing themselves to be more or less useless for American workers.

There’s a reason American workers aren’t paying much attention to the new financial regulations.
And no, it isn’t out of “apathy."
