JUST PUBLISHED RELAY #15

(Jan/Feb 2007)

The cracks and contradictions in the American empire seem to be
mounting weekly. Economic slowdown, the messes in Afghanistan and
Iraq, the third front opened in Somalia, the new nationalizations in
Venezuela are but a small list. In Canada, less dramatic but equally
telling problems have been taking the lustre off the Harper minority
government.

The new issue of Relay explores some of the openings this poses for
the Left, as well as the continued resiliency and capacities of the
American empire. These issues are discussed in terms of the U.S.
election, the American economy, and developments in third countries,
such as Cuba, Greece, Venezuela and others.

Also taken up are some of the dilemmas and opportunities facing the
Canadian Left. A critical aspect here is the issues based by the
recent 'nation' debate. There are also new challenges for
party-building, with articles covering the recent Quebec Solidaire
conventions and a proposal on the question of party-building in
English Canada. And much more.
