Ten years ago, in April 2001 at the Summit of the Americas, the security walls came down in Quebec City as one of the largest gatherings of the anti-globalization movement showed its power in the fight against capitalist globalization and trade liberalization. The independent, progressive news website, rabble.ca, was born out of this sense of outrage - as well as hope for a different path, and for the potential the open internet to change the way news was reported and shared.
A decade later, in an increasingly militarized Canada and concentrated media environment, rabble.ca was out front covering the G8/G20 in Toronto. With rabble.ca you've traveled with Code Pink to Gaza and Tahrir Square in Cairo, read Margaret Atwood in rabble’s Book Lounge, and interacted in live-streamed significant Canadian events that are ignored by the mainstream. From union gatherings, to the G20 Shout Out for Global Justice, to left-inspired fundraisers, music, poetry, and laughter, rabble has been a part of it all.
Help rabble party its way forward to the next 10 years, in this first in a series of events to be held across the country as part rabble's 10th anniversary celebrations. Reserve a ticket now:
And here's a petition from rabble:
