From the December 7th 2012 edition of [email protected] Radio - The show starts with some revolutionary hop hop from south america with Muerte Al Kapital by Zonyko con Dj CidTronyck (Prod. FaserBeats),  and we quickly talk about the launch of the new daily news show on the Daily GRRR!

Then on the Smash the state report we get into anti-austerity save the CSUMB actions in Sudbury with a 150+ person march to MPPrick bartolucci's office in Sudbury, and the cancellation of MPP and minister john milloy's open house after Poverty Makes us Sick KW and OCAP announced plans to attend the event to talk about the realities of this so-called joyous season.  In the place of the open house, PMUS KW, the Action Against Poverty, and the Spot Collective hosted those who travelled from toronto to a community celebration and meal.

we then play Terrorista Lyrical by Subverso and come back with a reading of the intro to Julian Assange's new book CypherPunks which proclaims the internet has been taken over by evil state/corporate forces which are using it to spy on everything and subvert justice.  Assange tells us to build digital zones that are safer from the evil by using the "ultimate form of non-violent direct action" - encryption.

Mutiny by Extash Team comes is followed by the surprising change heart by the "BC kicking mountie" who has owned up to his brutality and pled guilty to kicking a man in the face who was on his knees and complying with the officers orders.


We finish the show up with another track from Subverso, this time we hear Terroristas

More people are reading 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. 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.
