All the people who work on The Red Review live and work on stolen Indigenous lands across Turtle Island. There can be no reconcilliation without restitution, which includes Land Back and seizing the assets of the major resource corporations and returning them to the commons. 

In this bonus episode of The Red Review, brought to you by Socialist Action, we feature an interview with Montreal-based activist, author, and Canadian foreign policy expert Yves Engler. Prompted by the assassination of sitting Haitian President Jovenel Moïse on July 7th, we dove deep into the colonial history of Haiti, from its successful slave rebellion in 1791 to Canada’s role in the 2004 coup d’etat that brought down President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

You can find Socialist Action on Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter, or visit our website for more information. Socialist Action also plays a leading role in the Worker’s Action Movement, which ran the Labour Forward slate at the most recent Canadian Labour Congress, and the NDP Socialist Caucus.
