Rally 4 Egypt: The struggle for justice continues

Saturday, February 5, 2011 - 17:00 to 19:00

Join in this Vancouver rally for democracy and justice in Egypt:

After the fall of Ben-Ali in Tunisia and the revolution against Mubarak in Egypt, the revolution is spreading to all Arab countries. The peoples' movement is basically a call for justice. It is a peaceful struggle for economic and social development via democracy.

The defiant and deceptive actions of Mubarak with the pathetic stand of some of the western governments in general and the U.S. in particular vis-a-vis the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people are unacceptable and counter-productive.

We call on the whole free world to support the movement of democratization in Egypt and the rest of the Arab region. We call on Canada to live up to the values of freedom, justice and democracy.

The struggle has begun. Canadians will continue supporting the brave people of Egypt who are now at a very critical point in their struggle for justice and democracy.

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.
