The Collapse of the American Empire? – By Chris Hedges – video

The Agenda with Steve Paikin interviews journalist Chris Hedges

Book: The Collapse of the American Empire? – By Chris Hedges

Published on Sep 12, 2018

The Agenda welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, who over the past decade and a half has made his name as a columnist, activist and author. He’s been a vociferous public critic of presidents on both sides of the American political spectrum.

His latest book, ‘America, the Farewell Tour,’ is nothing short of a full-throated throttling of the political, social, and cultural state of his country.

Warning: Canadian Permanent Residents: ‘Get your Canadian Citizenship’

This Ontario man has a warning for permanent residents: ‘Get your Canadian citizenship’

For almost 60 years, Cornelis Ruijter has lived as a permanent resident in Canada, having immigrated to the country with his 14 brothers and sisters in 1961.

The Barrie, Ont., man never bothered becoming a full Canadian citizen, but after a theft abroad left him stranded in Europe for five weeks, he has some advice for any other permanent residents.

“Get your Canadian citizenship and get your passport,” he said.         Continue reading

Martin Luther’s Death…  Dream Realized or Fate Finalized – By Yvonne Sam

Five decades+ after Martin Luther’s Death.  Dream Realized or Fate Finalized.

By Yvonne Sam

Heaven is the word for Canada said M.L.K in a 1967 lecture. As we celebrate his birthday does such a statement still hold true?

An assassin’s bullet on April 4, 1968 fell Dr. Martin Luther King at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, where he was planning to join a strike by sanitation workers the next day. The anniversary of his death as well as his birthday January 15, have become important dates in the annals of both American and Canadian history, as well as in the long drawn out struggle for racial and economic justice. Montrealers will celebrate the 51st anniversary by looking back at what has been achieved and what has not been done since his famous speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., when he petitioned the federal government to make real the promises of democracy for blacks.          Continue reading

Emmanuel Macron has launched a two-month “great national debate” in France with a 2,330-word open letter to the country.

Racism in Guyana: The Millenial Perspective – By Kemol King

The Millenial Perspective…Race and the myth of Colour-blindness

Kemol King, 22

When The Policy Desk held its inaugural session on January 5, 2019 their intention was to give young people a platform to bring the youth’s most pressing issues to the helm, so that political parties would have a clear understanding of what is most important to the generation that will eventually take the reins.

I stood around waiting for someone to bring up what is arguably the biggest issue that has plagued our country for decades, but no one brought up racism. Therefore, I took the microphone. I suggested that the young activists, in their quest to take these fora across the country, dedicate their efforts to tackling racism by facilitating continuous national discourse among youth on this issue.   Continue reading

Racial division as great a threat to Guyana as Venezuelan aggression – CSIS Senior Associate

Evan Ellis

“Perhaps the greatest danger for Guyana is that the present domestic political turmoil escalates to decimate what remains of goodwill between ethnic groups, and their faith in whatever government emerges from the present crisis, to fairly and effectively use the new oil wealth to advance national development.” – Evan Ellis

By Abena Rockcliffe-Campbell

Could a major crisis be upon Guyana soon?
Citizens are eagerly awaiting word on whether General and Regional Elections may be held in less than three months; there is deep political divide; the country is unprepared for oil production in 2020 and Venezuela is flexing its muscles from time to time as it continues to claim a huge portion of Guyana’s territory.              Continue reading
