The easy answer for strengthening indie media 15.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
rabble staff We regularly get the question: is rabble.ca really sustainable? The short answer is: of course it is. For 17 years, rabble has forged a new approach to the news and for 17 years we’ve had a different approach to funding our operations. We think both make us sustainable! But it isn’t just about sustainability. rabble.ca can grow and develop to be an even stronger journalist voice for social movements, an even better platform for national politics. How? You. And of course anyone else who believes Canada needs non-profit, independent journalism. A few bucks a month from a few thousand visitors goes a long way in the indie media world. Please chip in with $25 or more (or become a monthly subscriber for as little as $5/month ). But aren’t all media organizations dying? It is true that major corporate media has fallen on very hard times. They’ve lost funding and are fighting for reader trust in the era of “fake news”. The Globe and Mail has undergone three major cuts to payroll in the last few ...

Announcing the second annual Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellowship 22.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
rabble staff "Don't let them tell you it can't be done." -- Jack Layton "Within our current media landscape, opportunities for social change reporting are rare and opportunities for mentorship are even rarer. The Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellowship is a unique merger of the two, a chance for an emerging writer or journalist to pursue the stories about economic, environmental, and social justice under the guidance of rabble's passionate and talented editorial staff. Above all, the Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellowship is a call to action; it is a reminder of urgent need to speak truth to power during these difficult times." -- Phillip Dwight Morgan August 22 marks seven years since Canada lost a great leader and friend. Jack Layton inspired people by example, demonstrating that working together for social and economic justice is possible and achievable. It is a fitting occasion for rabble.ca and the Institute for Change Leaders to proudly announce the second annual search for a recipient ...

A Free Press in Europe? Not If We Have Anything to Say About It! 15.8.2018 American Prospect
(Christian Marquardt/NurPhoto/Sipa USA via AP Images) Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, an erstwhile democratizer who “ played a prominent supporting role in killing communism in Europe ,” is now the man responsible for leading democracy to the gallows in Hungary. Once widely considered to be an exemplar of post-Soviet democratic success , Hungary is now leading the pack of “illiberal democracies,” and Orbán is the prophet of this new authoritarianism . Since 2010, Orbán has reduced judicial independence, restricted press freedom, and reshaped the electoral system to favor his party, Fidesz. He has fostered rampant xenophobia toward Muslims and resurrected ever-handy anti-Semitism , centering his recent successful re-election effort around a  government-funded propaganda campaign  against George Soros, whom he depicted as a globalist favoring open borders and open political discourse—a threat to traditional Hungarian society. In spreading his message and ...

Can the EPA Roll Back California's Clean Air Standards? 10.8.2018 American Prospect
(AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes) The Los Angeles skyline on June 24, 2010 Capital & Main  is an award-winning publication that reports from California on economic, political and social issues. The American Prospect is co-publishing this piece. When officials within the Trump administration, on August 2, proposed scaling back Obama-era fuel-economy standards and revoking California’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from tailpipes, they were betting on the chance that courts can’t tell the difference between a law against gas guzzlers and one against carbon belchers. Low-mileage cars and low-emissions cars are often one and the same, they may have reasoned. If you’re requiring a car to emit less carbon dioxide, you’re also asking that it burn less fuel. That part might be mostly true, although there are emissions controls that have nothing to do with gas mileage. But from a legal standpoint, fuel economy and tailpipe emissions take distinctly different routes to regulation. Fuel-economy ...

A call for the NDP to withdraw from the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Yves Engler The undersigned are appalled by the recent deaths in Gaza. At least 110 Palestinians have been killed and thousands injured by sniper fire and noxious gas used by the Israeli military. The recent violence takes place alongside ongoing land theft, destruction of olive groves, construction of Jewish-only roads, imprisonment without due process, and a blockade of Gaza. During its 70-year history, Israel has been as unjust towards Palestinians as the white-ruled apartheid state was to Black South Africans. We are concerned that members of Parliament would seek to strengthen relations with a country systematically violating Palestinian rights. In particular, we are dismayed that NDP justice critic Murray Rankin and NDP defence critic Randall Garrison serve as executive members of the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group. NDP MPs Peter Julian and Gord Johns are also members of that organization. The Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group promotes "greater friendship" between Canadian MPs and ...
