Report From Tonight’s Casseroles March At Toronto’s George Brown College!

I like George Brown college. I lectured there about the Occupy movement a couple of months ago- the students were smart, inquisitive, and turned on to the issues of social activism. So, when I heard they were having their first Caserolle March, I ran out of the house to cover tonight’s event!

What’s Going Wrong With The Student Fee Protests?

Anarchists or concerned students?

It was another beautiful day for a demonstration- the sun was shining and was mercifully accompanied by a cool soothing breeze. Spirits were high when I arrived on the scene. There was a small contingent of police- less than usual, I’m guessing this was related to Prince Charles’ visit…

I’ve no problem with Socialism- in fact, I’m proud to live in a (somewhat) socialist country. There are even a number of industries I’d like to see nationalized! (Bell, Telus & Rogers watch out!) I do, however, have serious issues with Trotskyism– as should all occupiers…

Continuing My Investigation of Occupy, Black Bloc & the International Socialists…

The Header From The International Socialist's MarxismConference.ca Website

The investigation into the relationship with the Occupy movement and the International Socialists (IS) continues- and, the deeper I look the more obvious are the connections. But, before I continue, I believe it is important to make something clear…
