What's Missing in the Media

As part of Media Democracy Day in Toronto, activists plan to take to the streets in Downtown Toronto to raise awareness about media concentration in Canada, and setting up speakers corners to ask the public what they think is missing in the media.

This video was the result of a free activist on-line video training workshop that we held on Oct 3 in Toronto. After the workshop, folks went out onto the
streets to try out their video skills and speakers corner action.

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.
