At rabble.ca we are curating G8/ G20 coverage at http://rabble.ca/issues/g8-g20 and we are looking for great stuff from video, to photos, to audio and yes, your observant tweets. http://rabble.ca/issues/g8-g20. is the special section of our website where all of our coverage is combined, plus we have extra curated information, links and more. You can also find our G8/G20 issue page under "search by issues" or the drop down menu "issues" from the home page: http://rabble.ca

Video: If you have video you can load it straight to us through YouTube Direct. This application allows you to share video with rabble directly from your YouTube account - benefits include that you share whatever specific video you want, and maintain control of the video. A direct link is on our G8/G20 page: Direct link at http://rabble.ca/issues/g8-g20 .

Photos: The best way to get your photos immediately into our Flickr photo pool is to join our G8/G20 group. You can do so by going to (guess where?) http://rabble.ca/issues/g8-g20. If you do not have your own Flickr account and would like to share photos, please contact Kristen at storm78@rabble.ca to coordinate.

Audio: The rabble podcast network will be standing by all week-end for your audio submissions. If you haven't already, please contact Meagan at meagan@rabble.ca<mailto:meagan@rabble.ca> to coordinate.

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.
