Education is our future: Stand with educators in Ontario on Tuesday August 28.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012 - 16:00

The Ontario government is about to enact legislation that will take away the collective bargaining rights of teachers and other education professionals, and set a dangerous precedent for other Ontario workers.
On Tuesday August 28th, come to Queen’s Park to stand up for bargaining rights, public education, and democracy. Join educators and other public sector workers in taking the government to task for manufacturing a crisis in education and attempting to impose unfair and unprecedented legislation.
We all face an important question. What do we want for our children? What is the greatest impact we can have on ensuring bright futures for all – futures that respect our rights and freedoms, including the right to good jobs and working conditions? We want to create healthy, constructive learning environments. Only by having real negotiations that address the needs of our educators and our classrooms can this happen.
Stand with educators on August 28. Education is our future.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading 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. 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.
