GroundWire | January 4, 2016: Year in review 2015

Like this article? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

This episode of GroundWire was produced by the GroundWire National Coordination Team and recorded on unceded Attawandaron territory in Guelph, Ontario at CFRU, hosted by Kim Logue

This is the 2015 GroundWire Year in Review episode, where we highlight some of the most significant news stories covered by GroundWire this past year

Features:

Resistance to environmental degradation was especially heightened in 2015, and GroundWire was there to cover local movements, with a focus on Indigenous perspectives.

We take a listen back to GroundWire's coverage of grassroots organizing in memorial of missing and murdered Indigenous women.

Canada's Black Lives Matter movements brought national attention to state-sanctioned violence against black people and fights ingrained anti-Black racism in our societies.

Community Radio Report:

And finally a look back at developments at Canadian campus and community radio stations in 2015

Music in this episode was by Lisean Sasha Henry

We also thank Mat Wilush, Carly Forbes, Omme-Salma Rahemtullah and Ophira Horwitz.

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.
