The mysterious case of the flying anarchist

Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 23:30 to Sunday, August 7, 2011 - 19:00

The next time the G20 comes to town, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is ready, PM Stephen Harper is ready, Police Chief Bill Blair is ready. So when a bomb goes off downtown, scores of protesters are rounded up right away. Everything is going smoothly until an anarchist organizer falls to his death from a window during interrogation. Police reports say it's an accident. And that it's a suicide. A lone maniac tries to discover the truth. What was the Mayor doing at the police station that night? Based on Dario Fo's classic 1970 clown show, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Matt Jones's adaptation is a pre-emptive attack on Toronto's new political landscape.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading 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. 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.
