Rally 4 Egypt: Celebrating the path to freedom

Saturday, February 12, 2011 - 17:30 to 19:00

The whole world is watching Egypt. And the whole world is inspired by the people's determined and courageous struggle to end a decades-old dictatorship.

Let's show that the people of Vancouver support this movement in Egypt and the wider region, and that we support human rights, democracy, freedom and equality.

Please RSVP, post this event, and please invite your family and friends. And then SMS or phone them as well to encourage... them to come out... This will be Vancouver's fourth straight Saturday rally in solidarity with the movements in Tunisia and Egypt, and we need this one to be the biggest.

New generations are waking up to the realization of their people power, the only power that can make real change for the better. This is a pivotal moment in Egypt and in the world -- let's not miss it!

Spread the word, and be outside the Vancouver Public Library downtown, at Robson Street and Homer. Let's see how big of a crowd we can get on barely 48 hours notice.

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.
