4th Annual Toronto Freedom Festival

Saturday, May 1, 2010 - 16:00 to Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 00:00

The Toronto Freedom Festival (TFF) is the city's largest one-day, outdoor, spring festival attracting well over 30,000 people to Queen's Park North in the heart of downtown Toronto. The event is always a peaceful celebration without an arrest or serious incident in its three year history.

TFF was developed to offer thoughtful, passionate groups a forum to expose their ideas to thousands of progressive thinking individuals. By coming together in large numbers, positive attention has been drawn to individuals and groups seeking to preserve their constitutional rights and freedoms.

TFF takes place in front of the provincial government legislature, where laws are made and challenged by politicians. It features over 100 musicians, DJ's, comedians, visual artists, political activists and speakers, giving them the opportunity to celebrate their ‘Freedoms of Choice and Expression.'

The 12th Annual Global Marijuana March will once again be led by Emery also known as ‘The Prince of Pot' on Saturday, May 1st, following his address at the Main Stage prior to the march at 1:15 p.m. He will also speak during the closing speeches at 6:30 p.m. on the Speakers Stage, with both Ron Marzel & Neev Tapiero speaking prior on medical marijuana reform.

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.
