The struggle over civil rights never ends, but it seems to be gearing up lately. In a rare moment of quasi optimism we see some victory in, yes, Wisconsin plus of course great things happening in Quebec, Canada, and in the world. Any listener to this show knows though that we can't keep the optimism up for long and shouldn't be surprised that we see some bad omens when it comes to democratic rights, including Obama's attack on the 4th amendment.
Plus, Monstanto buys their critics, an astro-turf smoking gun and more in our feature "Below the fold: News you might have missed"

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 in 2017.
