This section of the show starts with an announcement of victory as the Greek council of state suspends El Dorado Gold's mining licence after fierce opposition by an organized community. After a highlight of test their logik's Bling is Dead, we feature a stinging piece for Canada Day from the Briar Patch Magazine - Our Home on Native Land, and point to the amazing editorial in the Globe and Mail on the same anti-colonial vein.
Following, we have an update from Indigenous groups from the so-called ring of fire area of northern Ontario and their continuing opposition to mining then we jump to an update from the stop the vote campaign from the Sliammon as the Canadian government is forcing an illegal vote regarding their sovereignty.
As the Winnipeg Sun publishes a racist diatribe against indigenous people, and an Albertan gets pulled over in Quebec while running for charity, the anti-colonial working group crashes the British consulate in Toronto demanding justice for Marian Price and those targeted on Black Mountain.
We close the show with reports of great acts of courage from South America where in Brazil, Indigenous groups attack a police station, and Indigenous, students, and others in Chile chase away mounted police who were protecting a commemoration for fascist former dictator Pinochet.

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.
