Steps Forward in Free Access to Public Transport

Lukasz Lugowski

Thirty years of neoliberal domination, culminating in the economic crisis that began in 2008, have resulted in the introduction of charges for public service throughout Europe, particularly for education and health services. But this is not the case in all public services. In recent years there has been a renaissance of free public transport, particularly in Eastern Europe. While in Hasselt, Belgium or Colomiers, France -- cities that were until recently symbols of the success of free public transport in Western Europe -- tickets have been reintroduced as part of the neoliberal trend to charge for services, in the East candidates for local power compete with each other in many cities on the basis of...

bees

We have just a few days left to call on Canada to take real action to save the bees now.

Will you send a comment to Health Canada to impose the ban on bee-killing pesticides immediately?

Send an email

A,

Thanks to you, we’ve secured a win on banning two major bee-killing neonic pesticides in Canada.

But the bad news is the bans won’t come into effect for three to five years. There is no reason to wait this long -- the EU enacted its ban less than a year after deciding to ban all neonics.

Luckily, we have a chance to tell Health Canada to speed up the process....

Peacemaking in the age of Trump and Netanyahu

Will you back the Baka, friend?


WWF is violating international law

URGENT ACTION


Dear PAOV,
The Baka fear for their future.

They are about to see the forests they’ve lived in and protected for generations stolen from them. It’s a land grab, driven by Western organizations, just like colonial times. If it goes ahead, their lives will be destroyed.

They’re being evicted to make way for the creation of a new national park in the Congo Basin, Messok Dja. It’s backed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). And it's completely illegal.

It’s time to decolonize conservation.

For a Liberal Populism?

Blake Stewart

Over thirty years have passed since Chantal Mouffe and her late partner Ernesto Laclau developed the political philosophy of ‘Post-Marxism’ in their seminal text Hegemony and Socialist Strategy (1985). It was here where Mouffe and Laclau first challenged what they perceived as the vulgar and economistic forms class analysis found within Marxian political theory. The Post-Marxist field of social theory they introduced was an anti-orthodox Marxian philosophy that would be more inclusive to contemporary struggles which they argue cannot be discussed using only the language of class.

In her most recent text For a Left Populism (2018) Mouffe reflects on the current ‘populist moment’ in the West; providing a tool-kit for progressive social forces. Mouffe’s brand of populism...
