Nasir Aziz, Ethan Casey and Asad Faizi continue PakCast's coverage of the judicial crisis in Pakistan, debating the failure of opposition politicians to capitalize on President Musharraf's self-inflicted plight, the strikingly small and ineffective street protests held March 26, the return of Bhagwandas and his installation as Acting Chief Justice, and the hearings set to begin April 2 in Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry's case.
This installment also features discussion of allegations that Pakistan national cricket coach Bob Woolmer was murdered and of Iran's seizure of 15 British sailors, as well as a podlumn from Chicago-based correspondent Ambreen Ali about the new magazine Muslim Girl

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.
