rabble.ca launched on April 18, 2001 and from the very first day we wanted to promote dialogue among and with our visitors. We created our still-running-strong moderated discussion board, babble. Since day one, rabble visitors have joined in to talk and debate about the issues of the day. We have maintained a full archive of all discussions and every day there is more. Join in!
Like all of rabble, there is no charge to use babble. Every day there is of course cost to maintain rabble, including babble. If you have been babbling, or simply believe in independent media, please chip in to keep us going during our winter donation drive. Each week donors ($20 or more) will have a chance to win a rabble prize pack featuring our "good news pass it on" tote bag, rabble fridge magnet, best of rabble book and maybe a few other surprises.
Your support matters. Please donate today.
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.
