For the fourth installment of our series on Pakistan's judicial crisis, Pak|Cast convened a roundtable of Seattle-based Pakistanis, representing a range of views as diverse as Pakistani society itself. The roundtable participants were Terry Minhas, Sam Chughtai, and Shahab Ahmed. Terry Minhas called the current crisis a turning point in Pakistani history and the beginning of the end of President Musharraf's rule; Sam Chughtai asserted his hope that Musharraf will remain in power another 10 years. Throughout this four-part series, Pak|Cast has solicited and included your views. This in-person roundtable represents a summation of our efforts to bring to you all aspects of, and a full range of responses to, the judicial crisis.
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.
