At this point, there is no certainty that the Women’s March will evolve into an actual social movement. This much is clear: the Women’s March represents a political opening to rebuild a revolutionary feminist movement (in conjunction with other developing struggles) that advances demands to improve the lives of working people and embraces conflict with the liberal, capitalist character of the feminist movement of the day.
En este momento no existe ninguna certeza de que la Marcha de Mujeres vaya a transformarse en un movimiento social legítimo. Lo que sí resulta claro es esto: la Marcha de Mujeres representa una oportunidad política para reconstruir un movimiento feminista libertario (en conjunto con otras luchas en incipiente desarrollo) que plantee demandas enfocadas en mejorar las vidas de los trabajadores y oposición al carácter liberal y capitalista del movimiento feminista actual.

Ahead of the passage of the so-called “outpost legalization bill” in the Israeli Knesset today, Jewish Voice for Peace issues the following statement from Executive Director Rebecca Vilkomerson:
New Poll: Majority of Voters Oppose GOP Attempts to Push Through Ultraconservative Supreme Court Nominee
A new national poll released today finds that a majority of Americans think President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will have a real impact on the future of the country, and that they overwhelmingly oppose Republican attempts to strongarm an ultraconservative nominee on to the bench.
Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Equality NC blasted North Carolina Republican leadership’s reckless refusal to allow a vote to fully repeal HB2 -- the deeply discriminatory law that continues to inflict profound damage on the state’s people, reputation, and economy.
Saudi Arabia has stepped up arrests, prosecutions, and convictions of peaceful dissident writers and human rights advocates in 2017, Human Rights Watch said today. In January, a Saudi court sentenced two prominent activists to long jail terms, accusing them of being in contact with international media and human rights organizations. The authorities jailed two others, one of whom remains in detention while under investigation.
As Americans learn more about President Trump’s Muslim ban, they increasingly reject it, multiple polls show. Amnesty International USA said today that Congress should listen to growing public opposition to the Muslim ban and pass legislation to block it.
One hundred seventy conservation groups today urged the U.S. Senate to reject Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.) as the next interior secretary. Senators will vote in the coming weeks on whether to place Zinke in charge of the nation’s more than 1,500 endangered species, as well as more than 500 million acres of public lands and minerals leasing for oil, gas and coal across the country and in our oceans.
The Conservative party leadership campaign has unleashed pro-Israel puffery, but it is the NDP race that could have greater impact on Canada's Palestine policy.
Aping Donald Trump, former Conservative minister Kellie Leitch recently asked her Twitter followers to "join me in calling on the Government of Canada to immediately move our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem." This would likely contravene international law.

Anyone can yacht. It takes a certain boldness, though, to excoriate someone for hanging around an island in the Caribbean with a billionaire while you're yachting around the Caribbean with another billionaire.
Well, it's nice to have assistants to send out the press releases and do your Tweeting for you, I guess, when you're soaking up the sun on deck at an undisclosed location somewhere in the Caribbean Sea.
I know, I know … Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke a rule on his way to hanging around with the Aga Khan, who is also a family friend. Whereas Opposition Leader Rona Ambrose broke no rules on her way to hanging around with N. Murray Edwards, late of Calgary, who is also a family friend.
Fake news is as old as the Internet. From the 1990s, I remember spam, scams, and ghost ship "rolling" petitions that sailed the white-font-on-black-background PINE and LYNX seas -- almost as soon as the first e-list was compiled.
Spam couldn't easily penetrate Usenet -- the threaded online discussion Bulletin Boards, or BBSes that scientists used before email. When email lists proliferated, however, spamsters found ways to hop on board other people's trains, at open relays.
