Week two of COP15 starts tomorrow. The UNFCCC has accredited tens of thousands more people than can legally be in the Bella Centre, given fire codes, so tomorrow, Monday, is the last day that all NGO observers can be in the Centre together; the last day that all international youth can organize and get media within the centre, together, as an international youth climate movement.
We're unclear as to who, and how many of us, will be able to enter the Centre come Tuesday, but we do know that, come Thursday, none of us are getting in.
Early Canadian Delegation meeting tomorrow morning.
More on the happenings at Bella tomorrow.
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.
