Over the holidays we will continue to have new videos, podcasts, blogs and discussions on our live forum babble, but our articles and book reviews will return in the New Year. We hope you enjoy this review of 2011's most memorable news, opinion and feature stories out of the almost 400 original pieces published in the news & features section of rabble alone this year. It was a profoundly eventful year.
And we'd like to hear from you over the break -- what were your favourite stories, videos, podcasts or babble threads on rabble.ca in 2011? Add your thoughts in the comments below.
All the best of the season, and a peaceful and productive 2012 to all our readers.
At rabble.ca, we were already planning ahead for the election.
This fall Hot Docs is pleased to present the prestigious World Press Photo 09 exhibition from October 6 - 24 at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place, Toronto.
The exhibition features the prize winners of the World Press Photo Foundation's annual worldwide photojournalism contest. Each February an independent jury of 13 experts, selected from photojournalists, agencies and magazines from around the world, gather in Amsterdam to select the winning images in 10 categories and to name the World Press Photo of the Year. This year a record number of participants - 5508 photographers representing 124 nationalities - submitted a total of 96,268 images for consideration.
Another image, equally soft, equally muted. From Toronto this time - the Israeli consulate. Seven women chant in a circle, refusing to end their occupation until Israeli leaves Gaza. The image was shot by Canadian activist Judy Rebick, who just happened to have her Blackberry and a connection to her email and Facebook account.
