Oppression is something that many beings face, regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation or species. Why is it that animals are so often left out of radical liberation struggles? Join Mya Mayhem and Tim Rusmisel as they facilitate a discussion about how anarchist, feminist, environmental and other struggles are intertwined and how we can move towards uniting in the fight for total liberation.

Mya Mayhem and Tim Rusmisel are passionate vegan straightedge anarach@-feminist activists who have been dedicated to total liberation struggles for over a decade. Campaigns they have recently been a part of include the Open the Cages Tour and the Black Pawprint Collective. Their next project is a move to Costa Rica to work with the Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary on wildlife rescue/rehabilitation, sea turtle conservation, forest preservation and community solidarity building. This event is a fundraiser to help the animals of Rainsong.

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.
