Dec 9, 2019 - Write for Rights for Grassy Narrows

When: Monday, December 9th, 6pm
Where: 70 Saint Mary Street

This year, Amnesty International is highlighting a case right here in Canada, of youth from Asubpeeschoseewagong ("Grassy Narrows First Nation") who are fighting for justice in the face of 50 years of mercury poisoning in their community.

Because of government inaction, generations of young Indigenous people have grown up with devastating health problems and the loss of their cultural traditions. It's time for the government to keep its promise to deal with the mercury crisis "once and for all" so that young people can grow up in a healthy and thriving community.

We'll have the cases information, paper, pens, and inspiration!

Dec 8, 2019 - The British Election and Political Crisis

When: Sunday December 8th, 2:30pm
Where: WAC, 720 Spadina Ave, 2nd floor (suite 202)

Having recently returned from canvassing in the British election in Yorkshire and London (and after earlier attending the Labour Party Conference and speaking at "The World Transformed", Momentum and UnIte the Union events), Leo Panitch will address the strategic orientations, pitfalls and dilemmas faced by the Jeremy Corbyn leadership of the Labour Party in attempting to dislodge the Conservative Party government led by Boris Johnson. Britain goes to the polls on December 12, bringing the political crisis over Brexit to a head, and with Labour offering the most direct challenge to neoliberal policies in the UK since Margaret Thatcher came to power 40 years ago. Leo Panitch is co-author of The End of Parliamentary Socialism and co-editor of the Socialist Register.

Join us for the Socialist Project Winter Social after the talk.

Fundraiser for Socialist Worker

20 years ago, tens of thousands descended on the city of Seattle to protest the World Trade Organization (WTO). The WTO was about to institute a new set of global corporate rights policies that would be devastating for working people and the planet. But a huge coalition of environmentalists, trade unions and others protested and fought with police for 5 days to shut the meetings down in what became known as the "Battle of Seattle". Join us to hear about this historic protest and the lessons it provides for activists today.

When: Saturday December 7th, 6pm
Where: Workers' Action Centre, 720 Spadina Ave, Unit 223

Fight for $15 and Fairness has fought back against Ford's big business agenda this year. From occupying Ford's office in defense of temp agency workers' lives, to winning a commitment to $15 federal minimum wage out of the majority of elected MPs, together we've made a difference this year for workers in Ontario. Now, join us for an evening of fun, snacks and good friends!
