Keep Karl on Parl

Not many universities in the world can claim a full-blown left-wing think-tank. To its credit (and continued surprise for some, including its senior officers), the University of Alberta houses the Parkland Institute, a leading source of Canadian political economy research, and left animation of political life in Alberta and Canada.

Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Thousands of prisoners will be moved out of solitary confinement in California, thanks to a landmark legal settlement announced this week. Grassroots organizing can be tough, but when done by prisoners locked up in solitary confinement, some of them for decades, it is astounding.

The settlement grew out of a federal class-action lawsuit alleging violations of the constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.
