Racists are organizing in Quebec on July 1.  The Groupe de recherche sur l'extrême droite et ses allié-e-s (GREDA) recently published a blog in French detailing these actions.  There will be two large protests.  One is by the Mouvement Patriotique du Québec- starting at the St-Louis Square in Montréal at 13:00 and ending at the statue of Dollard des Ormeaux at the Parc Lafontaine

There is also going to be an anti-refugee protest by the Storm Alliance, starting at 11am at the Roxton Pound point of entry into Canada in the municipality of Hemmingford which is to the south-west of Montreal.  According the M. Tregget, the president of the Storm alliance, the protest has the support of La Meute, the Movement Republican du Quebec and the Coalition of Concerned Citizens. 

Solidarity Across Borders is helping to organize the counter-protest.  Transportation will be leaving Montreal at 8am sharp from Montreal. If you want a ride to Hemmingford from Montreal, please reserve a place in the vehicles before 8 pm EST, Thursday 29th of June.  To reserve send an email to solidaritesansfrontieres@gmail.com.

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.
