Nova Scotia's potential fracking game changer. We get the scoop on the Northern Gateway pipeline ruling, supporting trans and queer prisoners, and a movie review.
Pressure is building in many communities to stop hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” as a method to extract natural gas. We will hear about a proposed law in Nova Scotia that could be a fracking game changer. Hear the whole episode of "Habitat" here.
Then we get energized about the government’s recent ruling about the northern gateway pipeline. We hear from an environmental lawyer who lays down the law. Tune in to the "Redeye" episode we feature here.
And when there is law, it seems there are prisons. From rabble.ca’s own show, “rad voices”, we have an interview with a prison abolitionist activist working to support prisoners and change the system.
It is the tax system that needs to be changed to develop Africa, says one tax justice activist. What is tax justice and how can it be achieved? Tune in to find out. Hear the whole interview on Africa files here.
Finally rabble contributor Cathi Bond turns her cinematic eye to an offbeat film that might just reflect a new brand of chick flick. Catch all of Cathi's reviews on "Watch Me."

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.
