In support of 350.org's Day of Action on January 26, we will demonstrate our opposition to the Tar Sands in Toronto and support for a ban on them by City Council.
The non-violent demonstration will take place at Line 9 (Hendon Ave.) and Yonge St. at 1pm regardless of the weather. This is the first in a series of rallies along Line 9.
Our goal is to inform residents along Line 9 about the dangers of Tar Sands, and to build support for a motion at City Hall to prohibit the transport of DilBit across the city.
Up-to-date information, background, map, and Draft Motion are at: www.stopline9-toronto.ca
Invited Speakers: John Filion (Councillor, Ward 23), David Shiner (Councillor, Ward 24), 350.org, (others TBA)
"Stop Line 9"
"No Tar Sands in Toronto"
"No DilBit in My Backyard"
"Enbridge = 1%"
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.
