The 16th edition of the jhr Rights Report brings attention to gender-based violence in Canada and around the world.
First, International Crisis Group President/CEO Louise Arbour wrote an editorial in Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper calling on Sri Lanka to end gender-based violence against Tamil women. Second, Missing Justice is a Canadian movement calling for a national public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada.
*Rights Report news update* Khader Adnan, a Palestinian activist being held in an Israeli prison without trial or charge, has surpassed 50 days of a hunger strike against inhumane treatment. Many fear Adnan may die in Israeli custody if he doesn't receive urgent medical care.
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.
