We've assembled an exciting roster of writers and bloggers to share the latest scoop and analysis of the Copenhagen climate conference.

In addition to feature pieces, such as Oscar Reyes' "Plan B: Protect the Rich", and insight on the happenings in Denmark by our regular columnists, look to rabbletv and rabble blogs for daily coverage by Tor Sandberg, Program Director of rabbletv, who is on the ground in Copenhagen with his video camera; Diana Bronson, program manager at ETC Group (and rabble.ca board member); Josee Madeia,a member of the Canadian Youth Delegation; Joshua Kahn Russell, campaigner at Rainforest Action Network; Now Magazine's Alice Klein,  and bloggers from the Council of Canadians and U.S. Media Consortium.

And if you're one of the many Canadians who've travelled to Denmark for the UN's climate talks, we want to see your photos, video and listen to your audio from the city over the next week!

We're looking for a wide variety of shots that show your experience of the conference: citizen actions, protests and alternative events.

Just tag your Copenhagen photos on Flickr with "Copenhagen rabble" or e-mail us at [email protected] and we'll showcase some of the best here on rabble.ca!

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.
