Over the past 3 months the U.S. and Canada have attempted to overthrow the democratically elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro; so far it has been a failure. The attempted imposition of self-declared “President” Juan Guaido, a fake “humanitarian aid” convoy, escalating economic sanctions, sabotage on the electrical grid resulting in prolonged nation-wide blackouts, and continued threats of U.S. military intervention have not worked.

Militant tradition of workers’ struggles in the Atlantic Provinces
May First, international working class day, marked the 100th anniversary of the Halifax General Strike of 1919. Events in Halifax in 1919 and after must be seen within the context of both regional, national and international developments and working-class activity. Between 1916 and 1925 the Maritimes experienced unparalleled levels of strike activity. Significantly this upsurge was not confined to the coal mining communities of the region. Economic militancy often translated into political action. Miners in industrial Cape Breton, Cumberland and Pictou counties, steelworkers in Sydney, and industrial workers in Halifax, gypsum workers in Hants County in the Annapolis Valley, and workers in Amherst, New Glasgow and Saint John participated in the upsurge of radicalism seen across the country. In March 1919 a “great mass meeting” in Sydney endorsed a resolution by Nova Scotia Federation of Labour organizer Clifford C. Dane of Pictou for a strike of all Nova Scotia workers if the provincial government failed to enact legislation for an eight-hour day.

(March 12) – The United States will no longer consider its allies as protectorates. Therefore, they ask them to pay the cost of their protection, otherwise they will withdraw. This was announced by President Trump on January 17 at the Pentagon, which was presented in February at NATO, but was released only this week. A decision that applies to all allies, from Japan to Germany. The problem is that Washington is also asking its allies to align with its positions … as they did as protectorates. Continue reading
