Our Times: Canada's Independent Labour Magazine has announced a sneak preview of its upcoming issue:

"Our Times' winter issue (Vol.28 No.6) is going to have an exciting focus on labour history. We'll be highlighting Canadian composer Danny Schur's work putting workers' collective history to music, including his musical production Strike!, about the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike. We'll also be featuring an article inspired by the 10th anniversary of the protest in Seattle against the World Trade Organization. Labour educator Brian Charlton asks the question: What did we learn then that we can use today in our present-day struggles?
