Rights and Democracy President Gerard Latulippe was along the Thai-Burmese border during the Nov. 7, 2010 Burmese general election, the first in 20 years. After returning, Latulippe heard reports that Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of Burma's National League of Democracy would be released from house arrest. On Saturday Nov. 13, the leading voice for democratic reform in Burma, Aung San Suu Kyi, was finally allowed to leave the home where she's spent 15 of the last 21 years in confinement.
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.
