Toronto, ON

Between the Lines welcomes one and all to the launch of Our Friendly Local Terrorist by Mary Jo Leddy.

About the book:

“A chilling story that shakes your faith in our vaunted Canadian immigration system. Secret hearings, spying, betrayal, no accountability are features we associate with desperate dictatorships elsewhere, not our own government here in Canada. It is no wonder Canada’s stature in the human rights world has sunk to its lowest level ever. This is a national disgrace.” – Helga Stephenson, human rights activist

THE CLASS STRUGGLE IN VAUGHAN: THE SEARS LOCKOUT AND USW

by Jordy Cummings, The Bullet

In the last week of July 2010, workers of United Steelworkers (USW) Local 9537, who have been locked out of their workplace and on the picket-lines for nearly five months, found a big pile of shit sitting right smack-dab by their picket-line outside of a warehouse in Vaughan, just north of Toronto. One could not ask for a better symbol of retail-capital’s attitude toward their workers.

25 YEARS ON, STILL P-9 PROUD

by Peter Rachleff, Labor Notes

On the heels of a commemoration marking the 25th anniversary of the landmark strike at the Hormel plant in Austin, Minnesota, historian and strike supporter Peter Rachleff reflects on the battle waged by Food and Commercial Workers Local P-9 and its legion of backers across the country.)

>From the late summer of 1985 into the early spring of 1986, the small town of Austin, Minnesota, figured prominently in the national news. The dramatic themes and issues, twists and turns, of a labor conflict there captured the national imagination. This interest was not merely passive, as more than 30 support committees formed across the U.S. and aid for the strikers came from nineteen countries. This strike touched a raw, deep nerve.

A PLACE FOR EQUITY POLICIES

by Ratna Omidvar, Toronto Star

Employment equity isn’t about quotas. It’s about providing opportunities for competent individuals.

It angers Canadians to think that someone could get a job just because of the colour of his or her skin.

And it should.

ONTARIO TEACHERS’ PENSION PLAN INVESTING IN PRIVATE, FOR-PROFIT WATER SERVICES IN CHILE

In Canada and around the world there is clear evidence that the privatization of water services has meant:

* Rate hikes and cut-offs to low income households
* Violation or elimination of environmental regulation
* Reduction in quality of services
* Lay-offs and poor labour standards

Public private partnerships (P3s) are often used to privatize water services. Water is a human right and a public resource. Privatization restricts access to water – a vital life resource – to those who can afford to pay for it.

This is why the Council of Canadians has launched a campaign calling on the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) to stop investing in private, for-profit water services in Chile.

WHY WE VOTE AGAINST OUR INTERESTS

by Alex Himelfarb, The Mark

Quite a bit of work has been undertaken recently on why people often vote against their own interests… this now growing body of thought seeks to explain why those who should most want change often vote for ideological parties that defend the status quo or more accurately, in English speaking democracies, parties that trust to the markets and tradition, even if neither has been very kind to many of us.

COME TO CITY HALL – DEFEND TORONTO HYDRO

Tuesday, July 6
2:00 pm onwards
Toronto City Hall

The relentless drive by Bay Street financiers to sell off Toronto Hydro continues. A staff report to the City Council Executive recently recommended asking the provincial government to cancel any taxes that would be paid if the city wanted to sell off its public utility. That would remove a major obstacle to privatization. The executive not only rejected that stupid advice, but Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone has moved a motion explicitly calling for keeping Toronto Hydro in public hands.

The motion will come to City Council next Tuesday, July 6th, timed for 2:00 pm. Councillors need to see strong public support for keeping Hydro public. We need the galleries packed. Please make every effort to get to City Hall from 2:00 on – the debate won’t be a short one.

13TH ANNUAL SOCIAL JUSTICE SUMMER RETREAT:“AFTER THE CRASH: CREATING RESPONSES TO GROWING INEQUALITIES”

Thursday, August 26th to Sunday, August 29rd, Camp Arowhon, AlgonquinPark

Registration is now open!!
Early bird registration available until July 31th, 2010.

The collapse of financial institutions worldwide has thrown economies into prolonged recessions or minimal growth. Jobs have disappeared and lives suddenly and uncontrollably altered. Government revenues have fallen with the decline of economic activity and the loss of jobs. Declining revenues, recent tax cuts and modest spending to create jobs have all produced budgetary deficits… How can we organize to anticipate the coming cuts? How can we build coalitions to protest cuts and the loss of democratic controls?    

There is also a call for workshop proposals. Please visit http://www.socialjustice.org for more information and online registration.

SEMINAR – PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC EDUCATION: CONSEQUENCES FOR CITIZENSHIP AND CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION

Tuesday,  July 27
1:00 – 2:30
CIDE ‘Smart’ Room,  7-105, 7th floor
OISE – University of Toronto
252 Bloor St. West (at St. George subway stn.)

with Professor Orit Ichilov (Tel-Aviv University, School of Education, Israel)

Democratic societies assign public schools a prominent role in the development of citizenship virtues, values, and skills.  By the early 1990s, privatizing public education became a credible policy in many countries. Through the prisms of modern democratic theory and the discourse of rights, Dr. Ichilov argues that the introduction of “market” ethos and practices in public education represents a drift away from the collective mission of public schools in democracy, and subversion of the democratic purposes of education.

DAY OF ACTION FOR CIVIL LIBERTIES

Saturday, July 10
1:00 pm- 4:00 pm
Queen’s Park
Toronto, ON

Despite threats of new crowd dispersal weapons and dubious claims that police were granted extraordinary powers of search and arrest, over 25,000 people peacefully marched to question the legitimacy of the G20…Under the pretext of stopping vandalism, the police descended upon peaceful protesters and confused passers-by with force that was disproportionate, arbitrary and excessive, and included raids, rubber bullets, tear gas and pre-emptive detentions. In total, more than 900 people were detained based on dubious charges, in the largest mass arrest in Canadian history.

Demonstrate your opposition to the excessive use of police force and the unprecedented curtailment of civil liberties. Demand an independent public inquiry. Join the Day of Action for Civil Liberties in towns and cities across Canada and Québec on July 10, 2010.

NEWS & VIEWS

CCLA RELEASES A PRELIMINARY REPORT OF OBSERVATIONS DURING THE G20 SUMMIT

The CCLA (Canadian Civil Liberties Association) released its preliminary report on the G20 Summit policing and security today, entitled “A Breach of the Peace”. The report is based on the first-hand observations of over 50 human rights monitors that CCLA dispatched to observe the police presence at G20-related demonstrations throughout the week.

It is the opinion of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association that police conduct during the G20 Summit was, at times, disproportionate, arbitrary and excessive. In our view, despite instances of commendable and professional conduct, the policing and security efforts, especially after 5PM on June 26 and June 27, failed to demonstrate commitment to Canada’s constitutional values.

IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE G20: REFLECTIONS ON STRATEGY, TACTICS AND MILITANCY

by Ritch Whyman, The Bullet

The events at the Saturday G20 demonstration in Toronto last week have provoked a series of responses already. This article is not meant to review the events of the day itself, but to look at the questions raised by the demonstrations and tactics used for the left.

Suffice to say the reaction of the police, in arresting, detaining, and brutalizing nearly 1,000 people in the largest mass arrest in Canadian history, exposes the serious attacks on civil liberties the left faces.

A PUBLIC LESSON IN FEAR AND APATHY: EDUCATORS CONDEMN THE G20 ATTACK ON CIVIC EDUCATION

As educators, we charge the federal and Ontario governments, RCMP, OPP and Toronto Police responsible for G20 security for violating the institution of civic education. Our responsibility as educators is to prepare active citizens with a strong concern for democratic institutions and a sense of duty to participate actively in democratic processes…Democratic participation [was] not only threatened but, in vast numbers, criminalized and punished in a direct attack on democracy during the Toronto G20 summit.

The decision, issued by President David Skorton in an internal letter Monday, is being heralded by anti-sweatshop activists as a significant victory in a battle over Nike’s refusal to pay severance to displaced workers in its supply chain.
