Thanks to our parliamentary reporter Karl Nerenberg, Winnipeg Centre NDP MP Leah Gazan, and senior economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) David Macdonald, we had an insightful online discussion Wednesday evening featuring alternative views from Ottawa. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend!
Karl and guests provided a powerful and insightful discussion on the Wet'suwet'en struggle, reconciliation, and how these movements merge with economic concerns and the soon-to-come 2020 federal budget.
If you missed the webinar, you can still watch highlights, including Leah Gazan's powerful closing remarks on the power of solidarity for centuries-long struggles of Indigenous communities, and David Macdonald's insight on how the poverty on Indigenous reserves is unparalleled in Canada.
And if you haven't signed up as a member and would like to receive an invitation to our next webinar, you can do so now at patreon.com/rabble for as little as $1/month!
Our online discussions continue to reflect rabble.ca's work to share stories and insights important to activist communities. Thank you for being a part of them!

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.
