Common Causes/Causes Communes is an assembly of social movements dedicated to defending democracy, the environment and human rights.
It brings together groups and individuals across the country to act together for a better society in the face of the current Conservative government’s agenda that is weakening environmental protections, cutting public services and jobs, ignoring workers’ rights, attacking civil liberties and eroding democracy.
The assembly believes that coordinated action is needed to take a strong stand against the current federal government agenda that is changing society in critical areas such as the economy, the environment, labour rights, health care, food safety, education, social programs, culture, civil liberties, peace and poverty.
Common Causes will launch its website on January 28. In the meantime, you can find out more and join the discussion on Facebook (don’t forget to “like” us!) and on Twitter using #commoncauses
We invite you to join in this demonstration of support and commitment for progressive change. If you are interested in taking part in an action on January 28, please email [email protected]
There will be many spontaneous events in Canada and around the world in support of #CommonCauses and #IdleNoMore as both are working together on the January 28 th organizing, but here are some key events for the Common Causes launch.
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.
