Although I have above suggested some scepticism about whether this is, in fact, the first-ever such meeting (mineworker internationals must go back to the 19th century), it will be interesting to see what kind of appeal this meeting, promoted by the Communist WFTU, will have.

By refusing to go to school and by taking to the streets in the hundreds of thousands, Quebecois, including IWW members in Montréal, Sherbrooke and the Outaouais, are showing the rest of Canada that…Continue

They are also now the largest coffee and baked goods company currently on the market and have been marketing their fairly traded coffee products since 2003. Its rivals in the Star Bucks Empire (who by the way has been known to use child slave labor) claim that their coffee is indeed fairly traded but by in…Continue
