rabble is expanding our Parliamentary Bureau and we need your help! Support us on Patreon today!
On Saturday, December 5, from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., Vancouver Rape Relief & Women's Shelter will host their annual Montreal Massacre Memorial event at the Vancouver Public Library. The event happens in congruence with the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, which takes place on December 6, the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
This year's event will feature film screenings, lectures, roundtable conversations and more, and is free and open to the public.
In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Hilla Kerner, collective member at Vancouver Rape Relief, about the event and, more broadly, what's changed and what still needs to change in terms of the national conversation around male violence against women.

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.
