Defeat the Conservatives, no coalition with the liberals

Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 00:00 to 03:00

A coalition agreement has been drafted by the leaders of the Liberal Party and the NDP. New Democrats should have the right to openly and freely discuss their views on this crucial issue.

Adam Fulsom, local NDP activist and supporter of Fightback will speak on the dangers the proposed coalition posses to the future of the party, the realistic alternatives to a coalition government and what the party should be fighting for at a time of global capitalist crisis.
This will be followed by engaged discussion as well as music by Derek Atkinson of The Art Burn.

This meeting is hosted by members of the NDP Youth and supporters of Fightback.

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.
