On Friday, June 22, join in the largest act of civil disobedience in North American history.

From the Harper government's attacks on workers and our environment, to Charest's attacks on students and Law 78's attack on the public's right to protest, now is the time to unite. 

Tomorrow, June 22, there is a massive mobilization taking place in Quebec. Join with friends and family to take the uprising in Quebec from coast to coast to coast. 

This is about more than tuition; this is about education for all, about ending austerity, and about creating the future we want to build. We refuse to be silenced!

This Friday, wherever you are, join with friends and family to bang on pots and pans in solidarity with the people of Quebec. 

Most casseroles will begin at 8p.m. Check out this link to find out where events are being planned in your city. If your city isn't on the list, organize an event with the people in your community.

Casseroles will continue on a weekly basis. The next massive demonstration will be July 22.

On ne lâche pas!


Check out the short film by Jérémie Battaglia that captures the spirit of the Casseroles.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading 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. 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.
