Resistance Across Borders was held March 2nd in Toronto, as an opportunity to encourage understanding about Canada's involvement in war, as well as the implications of international conflict on security and borders. The event was organized by the Council of Canadians and CODEPINK, with rabble.ca as media sponsor. Its keynote speaker was Colonel Ann Wright, who was banned from entering Canada after leaving the US Army in 2003 because of her disagreement with the war in Iraq. The MC for Resistance Across Borders was Andrea Peloso, coordinator for CODEPINK in Toronto.

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.
