OUR SUNDAY LINKS

January 11, 2015

 

  • The Star reports on a story that GUTS also covered this week — the city of Toronto’s failure to provide a 24-hour drop-in for women and trans people, a project which has been delayed for nearly two years. “The urgency of the need is not recognized.”
  • Dissent magazine released its winter issue this week, focusing on the theme of urban activism. Among the selection of excellent articles is “Brooklyn Tenants Revolt,” a personal story by Sarah Jaffe “about tenants in one Brooklyn neighborhood who demanded a rent freeze from landlords who failed to heat their freezing apartments.”

the radical academic who makes a career out of treating working class or racialized lives as raw material for theoretical texts suddenly looks less like a genius and more like a well-fed vampire. And a black woman despairing of the men she dates might reflect that from this new perspective they look less like unattainable Romeos and more like the threadbare best of a bunch of bad options.

  •  A  news roundup collecting articles about this week’s bomb attack on the Colorado Springs office of the NAACP.

By Tuesday night, the hashtag #NAACPBombing was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter and people were shocked and frustrated that they were just learning of such a disturbing incident and had to learn about it from Twitter so long after it happened.

Winter became a depressing yet romanticized escape for me in a way I was never told was actually quite unhealthy. For years, I found myself stifling tears and sobs in public transit, in university lectures, and then finally at my workplace. ‘I have winter depression,’ I found myself muttering under my breath. ‘It will pass soon enough.’
