Time for a paradigm revolution: Seeking an alternative to neoliberalism

"It is not so easy to ask our young scientists to think outside the box when a significant portion of their salary (and mortgage payments) depends on guaranteeing a steady source of funding. Consequently, professors become highly attuned to the institutional priorities of various funding agencies -- often at a cost to their own creativity and desired research directions."

Occupying solidarity: Activists in London, Ontario protest Israeli attacks on Gaza

Protest for Gaza in London, Ontario. (Photo: Kevin Jones)

Rallies for Gaza took place this past weekend in cities and towns across Canada. Meg Borthwick reports on the gathering in London, Ontario. The Canadian Peace Alliance has called for a pan-Canadian weekend of action for Gaza Nov. 23-25. 

You wouldn't think of London, Ontario as a hotbed of civil unrest. It is, after all, home to the Labatt brewery, the London Knights,and General Dynamics (part of Canada's modest military industrial complex). If you're thinking that London is a tidy, by-lawed-to-death city, you'd be wrong.
