Climate Day of Action

Saturday, October 24, 2009 - 18:00

In December 2009, the fate of the earth will be decided at the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen.

 

We must demand leadership from our government to make Canada part of the solution, not part of the problem. Toronto Climate Campaign’s rally on October 24 is part of an international day of action promoted by 350.org to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis—the solutions that science and justice demand.

 

The focus of the October 24 event is to limit greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, a level that scientists have identified as a safe limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.  Please join us to voice the need for urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and to preserve a livable world for our children and all life.

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.
