U.S. Supreme Court decision and importance of affirming women’s rights

An interview with Dawn Hemingway (Carrell), one of the main organizers of Canada’s 1970 Abortion Caravan

Demonstration outside U.S. Consulate in Toronto, June 25, 2022, affirms women’s abortion rights and denounces U.S. Supreme Court Decision

TML: Thank you for joining us. You were one of the main organizers of Canada’s 1970 Abortion Caravan which boldly affirmed women’s rights at that time, bringing women into the front lines of the fight for rights. Before we ask you about that, please tell us what you think about the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to overturn its previous Roe v. Wade ruling of 1973.

Deplorable U.S. Supreme Court decision on women’s right to abortion and health care

Protest outside the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, June 26, 2022.

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 213-page ruling, overturned the 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade on June 24. This Supreme Court ruling of the “greatest democracy” is an attack on the Right to Be of all. It means that there is no longer a constitutional right to an abortion. Now states will decide when and if abortions can occur, with some having outright bans under any circumstances. Twenty-six states already have laws that will criminalize doctors and health care providers who provide abortions, forcing many to close down or cancel appointments.

2022 Rim of the Pacific War Exercises | Yi Nicholls

NATO, the aggressive alliance ostensibly based in the North Atlantic that is led by the U.S. has been trumpeting about the participation of several countries from the Asia Pacific in its upcoming summit in Madrid.

Juneteenth and the end of slavery

All Out for People’s Empowerment! End the Injustice NOW! | Dougal MacDonald

107th Coloured Troops, Ft. Woodbury, Arlington County, Virginia, November 1, 1865.

June 19, 1865 or Juneteenth (also known as Freedom Day) is celebrated across the United States in appreciation of the vital contributions made by African Americans in emancipating the four million people enslaved by the system of slave labour and in carrying forward the fight for justice and equality before and since the U.S. Civil War. Recent actions across the U.S. salute the determined and undaunted resistance to police violence, government impunity, and demands for accountability and for change that favours the people.

Juneteenth Festivals in the United States

Celebrate Resistance to Advance the Fight for the Rights of All!

March in Seattle, Washington, June 19, 2020 in the midst of the protests movement against the killing of George Floyd.

Buffalo shooter an avowed pro-Nazi

People in the U.S. Oppose More Police Powers and Demand Their Rights Be Upheld | Kathleen Chandler

It is now well established that the mass killing which took place in Buffalo on May 14 was pre-planned. It is also known that the individual responsible for killing ten Black people and wounding three others is a racist connected with neo-Nazis and their white supremacist theories. This includes connections to neo-Nazis in Ukraine. Payton Gendron posted pictures of himself wearing symbols of the Nazi Azov Battalion. According to reports, the connections were such that the live stream of the killings was posted by these Nazis in Ukraine.

40th anniversary of New York City march against war, nuclear weapons and for human needs

– Voice of Revolution –

June 12, 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the historic New York City “March for Nuclear Disarmament and Human Needs.” More than a million people marched in 1982, effectively shutting down midtown Manhattan for the day. The numbers were such that people filled the streets from start to finish of the march. Many of the feeder marches never reached the starting point at the United Nations as wave after wave of people marched toward the UN or rallied where they stood. It was a powerful and united stand against the U.S. use, testing and buildup of its nuclear arsenal. No More Hiroshimas! U.S. Disarm Now! Fund Human Needs! Abolish Nuclear Weapons, March for Peace and Justice! were among the demands raised.

Kissinger (II) – The conception of total war to divide the world

The essence of Kissinger’s message of what he means by detente and negotiations is the promotion of the use of nuclear weapons.

Serbian football fans’ banners name countries that have been subject to U.S./NATO military aggression, March 17, 2022. 

The tone of the speech by Henry Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, delivered to the Davos World Economic Forum on May 23, and of his May 9 interview with the Financial Times, is one of detente and negotiations. But the essence of what he means lurks behind this talk, which is the promotion of the use of nuclear weapons.

Kissinger addresses how the US should proceed to order and divide the world (I)

What Kissinger is saying is that Ukraine, Taiwan and other issues should be used to pit China and Russia against each other in a manner that favours the U.S. and prevents them from establishing a “permanent alliance.”

A plethora of former U.S. presidents and vice-presidents, secretaries of state, national security advisors, newspapers and pundits of various kinds have been giving opinions about the Ukraine crisis and discussing U.S. foreign policy and the direction it should take. On May 23, Henry Kissinger, four days before he turned 99 years old, spoke virtually at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. In the lead up to the WEF he also gave an interview to the Financial Times on May 9. He addressed the issues of Ukraine, China, Russia and nuclear weapons.

April 30, 1975 – 47th Anniversary of the Reunification of Vietnam

The Great Spring Victory that culminated in the fall of Saigon and American occupiers fleeing for their lives, achieved the reunification of Vietnam 47 years ago, on April 30, 1975.

“Nothing More Precious than Independence and Freedom; They Have Chosen Uncle Ho’s Path”

The Great Spring Victory that culminated in the fall of Saigon and American occupiers fleeing for their lives, achieved the reunification of Vietnam 47 years ago, on April 30, 1975. The reunification of Vietnam shines in the annals of the liberation struggles of the peoples of the world. The defeat of U.S. imperialist aggression lifted the spirit of the peoples of the world who were striving to put an end to colonialism and imperialism. Revolution was then in flow. The world has since changed greatly, going into a period of retrogression and retreat of revolution, yet today’s Socialist Republic of Vietnam continues to shine and inspire.

47th anniversary of Vietnamese people’s great victory over the US imperialists: The real American war in Viet Nam – ‘kill anything that moves’

By DOUGAL MACDONALD

Victory monument in Xuan Loc, Vietnam

Forty-seven years ago, the U.S. imperialists were resoundingly defeated by the heroic Vietnamese people, who had suffered greatly at the hands of the French colonialists and then the U.S. imperialists. Historic photos show the last of the U.S. invaders scrambling frantically to escape Viet Nam by helicopter, trying to save their worthless skins from the wrath of people’s war. Continue reading

No to plunging the peoples of Europe into a U.S./NATO-provoked war! All out to rally Canadians against warmongering, lies and disinformation

– Statement by the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) –

Anti-war demonstration at U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, February 9, 2022. Demonstrations took place in Kyiv and different places around Europe in February against NATO, including to coincide with the Munich Security Conference meeting in Munich on February 19. 

Amidst all the warmongering, lies and disinformation over what Russia is or is not doing in Ukraine to defend its strategic interests, the obvious question arises as to who is threatening the peace in Europe? Is it Russia because it has taken pre-emptive action to defend its interests against the continuous escalation of the expansion of U.S. troops and bases and of U.S.-led NATO forces on Russia’s borders? Or is it the United States and its aggressive military alliance NATO, which includes Canada, which have expanded their field of operation into eastern Europe threatening the very borders of Russia?

Reflections on Malcolm X’s legacy

By ISAAC SANEY

February 21st marks the 57th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, who later took the name El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz after his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1964. As a revolutionary internationalist and a leader of the Black liberation struggle, Malcolm X shaped and influenced a generation of Black activists, artists, revolutionaries and intellectuals. His impact has been profound and lasting. The assassination’s anniversary is, therefore, a time for serious contemplation of his legacy.

Standoff involving ‘Freedom Convoy’ continues: Many question why the Prime Minister invoked the Emergencies Act

Bill Blair, Minister of Emergency Preparedness, made the rounds on CBC Radio the day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the 1988 Emergencies Act. What stands out when he appeared on CBC’s local Ottawa morning show, then on The Current which broadcasts nationally is his inability to speak sensibly as to why the government sought recourse to the Emergencies Act.

Friday, October 22: Cultural event 6:00-9:00 pm
Saturday, October 23: Tribunal 10:00 am-6:00 pm
Sunday, October 24: Tribunal 10:00 am-5:00 pm
Monday, October 25: Presentation of Findings at the UN
Register here: spiritofmandela.org

An important International Tribunal is taking place October 22-24 in New York City. Organized and hosted by the Spirit of Mandela Coalition it aims to bring international attention to U.S. violations of human and civil rights of Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples, spotlighting the inhumane and violating treatment of political prisoners. As an example, the U.S. is violating international law in its deliberate refusal to provide adequate medical care to U.S. political prisoners and all prisoners. Another example is the use of extended solitary confinement. Leonard Peltier, still unjustly in jail after more than 45 years, was repeatedly kept in solitary for long periods, as were many others, especially Black and Puerto Rican political prisoners. In the case of Albert Woodfox he was forced into solitary for 40 years!

Ukraine: The inter-imperialist rivalry between the Biden presidency and rich local oligarchs

‘One Way Ticket’, painting by Svetlana Kryukova, 2021*

By Dmitriy Kovalevich*

Over the past 30 years, Ukraine’s independence has had two main pillars – the administrations of the United States/UK/Canada and the Ukrainian oligarchs, who defended their assets looted in the 1990s. Both these pillars have actively promoted their deputies to the Ukrainian parliament, as well as financing ultranationalist organizations and their media. And right now, a struggle is flaring up between the two pillars.
