To everyone who is pissed off at this non-democratic electoral system: Being terribly disappointed and frustrated by what we witnessed on May 2nd, we, a growing group of young people, have started to organize a peaceful demonstration against this corrupt electoral system, taking place this Friday, May 6th.
We think that until we raise our voices about the flaws of our current system (First Past the Post), our votes will be ignored by those in whose interest lies such backward strategies. If you are up for a demonstration (and this is to all cities across Canada), let's organize them starting this week!
Check out the Facebook event for more info.
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.
