The best of rabble's best

Best of rabble
Your favourite 2009 rabble interviews, features and commentaries

The latest -- and greatest -- volume of the much loved Best of rabble.ca book series is here, hot off the presses!

In what has become an annual tradition, this third "best of" is a pocket-sized reader featuring the best stories in the last year from rabble's news and features section. Highlights include interviews with rabble rousers and thinkers like Tariq Ali, George Galloway and Denis Rancourt; stories of silenced dissent -- many that were donated by activists doing double-duty to both organize and cover events, protests and struggle underreported or ignored entirely by the mainstream press.

"Stories matter. The stories we are told (and tell) help to define our communities" write publishers Kim Elliott and Duncan Cameron in the foreword to the latest edition of the Best of rabble.ca. And telling stories that define rabble.ca's community is exactly what the book aims to do.

Web content is fleeting and rarely captured in print form. With this book rabble.ca hopes to share with its community -- the contributors, readers, members, donors -- a historical record and evidence of how far the site has come, now in its ninth year, to provide "news for the rest of us."

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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
