Zeenat Shahzadi is a 26 year old Pakistani journalist who was kidnapped off the streets of Lahore on August 19th, 2015, and has been missing ever since. The brazen, daylight kidnapping of a young female journalist was the first of its kind in Pakistan.
Join us as we gather on the second anniversary of Zeenat's kidnapping to recognize her bravery and to call on the Canadian government to intervene with the Pakistani government, urging them to immediately order a full investigation of Zeenat's kidnapping, and to prioritize her safe return home.
Zeenat’s family and the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan believe Pakistan’s Special Forces are responsible, because she fearlessly pursued an explosive story the spy agencies didn't want told.

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.
