Just wanted to pass on the good news! Hey, we all could use some good news right now as activists spend endless hours working to make the counter G8/G20 Summit protests a success.
I know I could use some good news, I'm still reeling from the G8/G20 security price tag announcement that policing the Summits will cost US tax payers (ie, anyone paying taxes is paying the police to be there!) $833 million dollars (that's almost a billion dollars)
I know I could find 833 better ways to spend that $833 million dollars!
So here's the good news on the environmental front.
Simcoe County Council voted Tuesday to rezone the landfill for agricultural uses.
Less Garbage! More carrots!
Resistance is Fertile!
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.
