The People's Street Summit

The People's Street Summit

Bringing their Summit to the Ground.  Join us for a rally in opposition to the G8 University Summit.

The summit's theme is "Universities and Communities: transition to a sustainable future". We believe that the oil and pharmaceutical industries are the problem. We believe universities are serving the interest of corporations, not communities. We believe that education should be emancipatory, free for everyone and promote freedom, equality, social and environmental justice, not the neo-liberal trade agenda, the free market or criminal industries. We will build the momentum for a movement for emancipatory community education, Indigenous Sovereignty and Self-Determination, Environmental and Climate Justice, Migrant Justice and an End to War and Occupation, Income Equity and Community Control over Resources, Gender Justice and Queer and disAbility rights.

While the university is with the elites, we will be on the streets!

Education should empower communities, not corporations!

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.
