Here is an interview from the September 17th edition of the Daily GRRR! w/ Tings from the End Immigration Detention Network. September 17 marks one year since the migrant strike actions by detained immigrants in Ontario and Quebec. We spoke with Tings about the one-year commemorations of the migrant strike actions, ongoing resistance to harmful immigration policies by Harper's government, and the intersectional analysis on bringing together the diverse social and ecological justice movements.

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.
