A Rally for Earth Day

Monday, April 22

3:00-4:00 p.m.

Outside the Irving Shipyard

3099 Barrington St., Halifax

(At the Niobe Gate Entrance near Devonshire Avenue)

A rally in support of Earth Day. The federal and provincial governments should be investing tax dollars in a green economy to take action on climate change and to protect our air, water and soil instead of wasting billions of tax dollars on warships that are not a priority. Canada needs a green, peaceful economy for a sustainable future.

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.
