Open Media is raising the alarm about international agreements which are threatening our digital rights and freedoms. Here are three important initatives which need attention.
Ministers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the U.S. want to force companies to crush the encryption that protects our private data and messages. But ordinary people need and use encryption every day, in everything from online banking to personal messaging in apps like WhatsApp. Join the campaign to stop them here.
Negotiators and top decision-makers have bee putting your digital rights at risk as part of the renegotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and as part of the TPP. The TPP maybe coming back in November and needs to be stopped. Let the NAFTA renegotiators know that there is no free trade without a free internet.
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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
