Left Alternative is a weekly discussion group held at SFU's Burnaby campus to discuss various social, political, economic, and cultural issues of significance to our members - and, we hope - the general members of society. It is dedicated to debating left politics outside the bounds of mass media, everyday cliche, and centrist/centre-right orthodoxy while exploring/pursing common interests. In the past, discussion topics have included the definition of socialism, the state and bureuacracy, colonialism and imperialism, nationalism and socialism, gender and socialism, and problems around the environment and ecology. While it is not possible to discuss these topics in their full depth in the space of one meeting, we frequently have extended discussions probing a number of different left perspectives to try to reach somewhat of a consensus understanding.
