'Mourn the dead and fight like hell for the living' said Mother Jones. On the one year anniversary of the January 29th, 2017 attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City in Quebec City, this rings true for us.
Share and reflect on where you were when you first heard about the Quebec mosque shooting? The idea is to simply insist that the day of the shooting is important enough to remember where we were. We remember where we were on other significant moments like on 9/11, the École Polytechnique massacre, when JFK was assasinated. Let's remember this date and demand rememberance and action.
Here are three ways to participate:
1) Visit the website and share your post
2) Use your own social media pages (Twitter/Facebook/Instagram) to post an account and with the hashtag #rememberJan29. Your messages will appear on the website.
3) Share on the Remember Jan 29th Facebook group
Let's demand that this day is remembered.
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.
