I've been waiting to hear from more than just the wonderful artists who've been creating the many variations on the #IdleNoMore theme.

From The Johnnys" website..
"...The Johnnys are a high-energy rock’n’roll group founded by singer/guitarist Veronica Johnny and drummer Dave Johnny. Since their beginning in the Canadian sub-arctic, The Johnnys have achieved national prominence through television, film and live performances – legendary for their pace and sweaty, leather-clad mayhem. The band’s albums, I Like It A Lot and Louder Faster More Fun, were both nominated for national awards in the Best Rock CD category...."
"My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back."~ Louis Riel, July 4, 1885.

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.
