Party of the European Left: Program for a Great Transformation
Walter Baier / Transform! Europe (Vienna)
Recently, the draft for a globalisation programme was submitted by the National Board of the Red-Green Alliance/Enhedslisten (Denmark), member of the Party of the European Left (EL), to the party's next Annual Congress on 5 – 6 October.
Labor and the Climate Movement
Canada / Socialist Project (Toronto)

Climate Strike: Week 2
William Mansell / ABC News (New York)
For the second consecutive week, climate change demonstrators took to the streets across the globe to highlight the growing climate crisis.
Fury in Haiti
Jane Regan / NACLA Report (New York)
A three-week gasoline shortage—caused because the government, which purchases gas on behalf of distributors, owes suppliers $100 million—led to outrage.
UK Labour Party Conference Sprints Left
Sarah Jaffe / The American Prospect (Washington DC)
Labour’s best hope for victory in a general election, just as it was in 2017, is to get people talking about something besides Brexit.
India: New Chapter for the Left
K. M. Shrimali / Frontline (Mumbai)
The Left should take the lead, prepare itself to plough its own furrow and be in it for the long haul (as distinct from falling for short-term and short-sighted “strategic” electoral arrangements/understandings either with opportunist parties or with ideologically right-oriented formations).
Egypt: New Wave of Protest
Sharif Abdel Kouddous / Democracy Now! (New York)
Thousands have taken to the streets to demand the resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi over accusations of corruption.
International Anti-Imperialist Conference Coming to Cuba
Nuria Barbosa León / Granma (Havana)
Havana will again serve as a meeting place for those who defend peace, solidarity, and justice, November 1-3. The event will propitiate debate and interaction around a program of concrete action to condemn the brutal economic, commercial, financial blockade imposed unilaterally by the U.S. government.
