Today’s podcast brings you the voices of Karen Rooney and Matt Chisholm, two of the six young Canadians on the CYD who disrupted Minister Kent’s speech in plenary at COP17 on Wednesday. They explain the reasoning behind the protest and its significance for the greater youth climate movement. We also hear the story of a woman from India whose job as waste picker is threatened by Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects that install large waste incinerator projects in her country.

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.
