Micha Peled has produced three connected films that put a human face on complex issues that result from global economic forces. Store Wars: When Wal-Mart Comes to Town focuses on consumerism in the U.S. China Blue investigates the sweatshop labour conditions in the manufacturing of the clothes we buy. The last film in the series is Bitter Seeds, looking at the crisis of the farmers in India who grow the cotton. Micha Peled speaks with Redeye host Jane Williams. The films show in Vancouver this coming weekend. Check here for the schedule for Store Wars and China Blue. Check here for Bitter Seeds.

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.
