Red Square march in Toronto on Saturday
Saturday July 28, 2012
King's College Circle, University of Toronto
The Call Out:
From the FB page: ONTARIO STRIKES BACK
Around the world, people are rising up against austerity and an oppressive neo-liberal agenda that asks them to pay for the destructive greed of the wealthy elite.
Corporations receive massive subsidies and tax cuts while social programs are slashed and education is treated as a commodity, not a common good.
Ontario students pay the highest tuition in Canada, and while student debt mounts, university administrators increasingly serve the interests of the highest corporate bidder.
From Chile to Quebec to Ontario, the time has come to stand up and strike back.
Come and march, bring your casseroles, your friends, and your indignation.
This is only the beginning.

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.
