Summerside Common Causes rally

Monday, January 28, 2013 - 16:00

On January 28th when Canadian MPs return to the House of Commons, we will greet them with a strong message. 

Across the country and around the globe there is a new kind of movement against the Harper Conservatives. 

Common Causes - a new initiative bringing together social justice, environmental, labour and other activist groups is organizing for a global day of peaceful action to fight back against targeted attacks by this government on indigenous communities, environment protection, our public services, worker’s rights, a women’s right to choose, workers, charitable organizations, civil liberties, migrant and immigrant and refugee rights. 

Among the many groups in our large coalition, Idle No More, is participating on January 28th and have chosen to make it a day of action for their cause. Our cause is the same, and we will stand in solidarity with Idle No More.

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.
