This July the climate movement in Canada will come together to be bigger and bolder.
On July 3 and July 4, we’ll take action across the country for real climate solutions and to show Stephen Harper that We > Tar Sands. Click here to join in the action.
On July 5, we’ll march with a broad coalition in Toronto to demand a justice-based shift toward a clean renewable economy. Click here to join the march
Actions will be led by youth, workers, First Nations and community members from all walks of life. We’re calling our part of this historic effort “We > Tar Sands: Action for Jobs, Justice & the Climate.” The action has three key parts:
The first will be youth and students, confronting the political leaders who have sold out our future, targeting MPs and party leaders who have stood with Big Oil instead of us.
The second is community resistance, building off of the incredible victory in Cacouna, Quebec that stopped a key TransCanada export facility and delayed Energy East for two years. We will show Big Oil that there are dozens of Cacounas in every part of Canada: communities that refuse to give in to the tar sands.
The third is epic solidarity, where the growing climate movement will join with workers, First Nations, and other allies to march together through Toronto, the traditional homeland of the Mississauga New Credit First Nation, on the eve of the Pan American Climate Summit — to demand leadership for jobs, justice, and real climate action towards a new energy future.

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.
