If we're serious about stopping pipelines, ending our investments in fossil fuels, and standing with First Nations leading the fight against tar sands -- then we need to start talking about taking bold action.

We're hosting an event called #BoldAction -- the Moral Call for Climate Justice, a conversation about how to step up our movement to confront the climate crisis featuring powerhouse activists and voices for change.

We'll be joined by three amazing speakers: Reverend Lennox Yearwood, founder of the Hip Hop Caucus and a powerful voice in the campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline; Heather Milton-Lightening, who has spent years working with Indigenous communities to stand up against dirty energy; and Sean Devlin, a comedian and activist whose family roots in the Philippines tie together local fights to stop pipelines and tar sands to a larger struggle for global climate justice. 

This talk will prepare us to make the coming months even more epic, and make an impact on Harper's imminent push for tar sands pipelines to the west coast. Can you be there? Click here to get a ticket.



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.
