Big Techs war on immigrants

Across the world, companies like Microsoft and Salesforce are helping ICE and Frontex lead their war against immigrants and refugees.

Call on tech companies to side with immigrants and renounce their contracts with ICE and Frontex!

Sign the Petition

A,

In the US and EU, Immigration Customs Enforcement and Frontex carry out the everyday enforcement of xenophobic immigration policies. But they’re not alone: tech companies like Microsoft and Salesforce are equipping immigration police with the tools they rely on to track, identify, and incarcerate migrants and asylum seekers.

While Trump’s immigration enforcement agencies continue to make headlines around the world for their enforcement of his heartless immigration policy, many tech giants like Microsoft...

UN Office Calls for Probe Into Human Rights in Kashmir

John Riddell

A conference in Mississauga July 7, convened by the Kashmir Welfare Society, marked the first organized response in Canada to a United Nations report calling for an investigation of human rights violations in this divided South Asian territory.

More than 200 participants adopted a resolution calling on the government of India to withdraw troops from Kashmir (full name: Jammu and Kashmir) in order to permit an "enabling environment" for implementation of the UN’s resolutions calling for a plebiscite to determine the territory’s future.

President Sardar Masood Khan of Azad Kashmir, the Pakistan-administered portion of Kashmir, described to the Mississauga gathering a broad unarmed protest movement in Indian-administered Kashmir that seeks self-determination...

Border Capitalism, Disrupted:
Precarity and Struggle in a Southeast Asian Industrial Zone

Stephen Campbell

Through to the back of the cremation grounds where the fields of sugarcane begin, Ko Soe and I coast our bicycles to a stop. It is mid-December, and the sugarcane stocks are tall now, taller than us. Somewhere amid these fields Myanmar migrant workers from the nearby Apex garment factory are hiding. We know this because Ko Soe had only minutes ago been talking with one of them by phone, but then the connection had died; presumably this worker’s phone had run out of power. So now we dismount and look around for an entrance into the fields. The sugarcane is far too dense to walk through, even if we were...

Ontario Fights Back: Recalling the Harris years

Canada, and its industrial heartland and largest province of Ontario, is far from immune from the right-wing populist forces gaining electoral ground and organizational force around the world. The June 7th election of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario (PC), led by the politician, businessman and blowhard Doug Ford, to a majority government is an all-too-clear example.

Canada has gone through a number of more or less reactionary and austerity-driven Conservative governments, most recently that of Stephen Harper from 2006–2015, but also at the provincial level in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. In the past, Ontario was ruled by moderate PC governments for forty years before they lost power to Liberal and then NDP governments, both experimenting in the centre-left ‘progressive competitiveness’ strategy of high-skills, value-added protection...

Ireland's on the right side of history. What about Canada?

Join your community this week to push Canada to the right side of history. r1

Dear friends,

I’m writing this with a Guinness clutched in one hand, because this week the government of Ireland gave us a big reason to celebrate: it became the first nation on earth to commit to fully divesting from fossil fuel companies. Once the bill is rubber-stamped by the Senate, Ireland's €8bn sovereign fund will start to ditch all its oil, coal and gas assets. This is exactly the kind of leadership we need in the midst of a climate crisis.

But unfortunately, by buying out a dying pipeline project, your Prime Minister and self-styled climate champion, Justin Trudeau has cemented a place for himself on the wrong side of history. That’s why it’s more important than ever to speak up on Trudeau’s buy out of the Trans Mountain pipeline...
