BUILD OUR FUTURE - NOT A PIPELINE!

The forests are on fire and the air is thick with smoke. The water is polluted and the planet is being destroyed. Yet Prime Minister Trudeau continues to be hell-bent on wasting billions of taxpayer dollars on buying one ageing Tar Sands pipeline and trying to build another.

Join hundreds of thousands mobilizing around the world on September 8. We are putting forward a vision for a sustainable future We are working together to show the alternatives, and we are growing!

Bring your friends, family and co-workers as we gather to demonstrate and reaffirm our commitment to fighting for climate justice and a better world. We are working to build our future, not a pipeline. We demand the government of Canada do the same.

Fund Housing, Healthcare, Education & Green Energy - NOT PIPELINES!

Sponsors: Climate Convergence Metro Vancouver, UBC 350, Vancouver 350

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.
