Our Stop the Secrecy campaign launched Tuesday - and already we’re having a major impact, with over 2.8 million people calling for an end to the secrecy surrounding the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We’ve just launched our hard-hitting “bat signal” in Washington D.C., and we thought what better way to share these images than by launching them on a new OpenMedia Tumblr.

We’re big fans of Tumblr here at OpenMedia and we know it will be a great way for our community to keep up with this and other OpenMedia campaigns, and to share the latest developments and photos with your friends. Check out our brand new page at http://openmediaorg.tumblr.com

Over the next week, we’ll be posting exclusive photos of our Stop the Secrecy bat signal and updates on how our voices are impacting key decision-makers in Washington and around the world during this crucial week of TPP talks.

Make sure to follow the blog and repost our images to keep the momentum going! Here’s how to follow us on Tumblr:

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
