The Vancouver Observer has published a great new book, titled Extract, and is throwing a launch party!
The controversy about oil sands pipelines has put B.C. on the stage of history, and Extract brings you the essence of that debate, including; the perspectives of First Nations, The Harper government’s assault on science, the impacts of climate change, and many others.
Please join us for the Vancouver Observer launch party on January 12, 2013 from 6:30 to 9:30 at Ceili's Irish Pub and Bar. The party takes place just 48 hours before the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline hearings are coming to Vancouver.
This is the perfect place for people to connect and get energized in this historic debate. Bring your dancing shoes!
Please share the invite with your contacts: http://vanobserver.eventbrite.com/

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.
