The Council of Canadians team in Copenhagen has just participated in a 'No One Is Illegal' march to the Danish Ministry of War.

The message of the march - "Climate injustice is not just about CO2!"

No One Is Illegal says, "No borders. No fortress Europe. Freedom of movement for all and the right to stay without fear of militarization and climate chaos."

As noted in a past campaign blog, the United Nations World Water Development Report says that by 2030 nearly half of the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress. In March 2009, the Globe and Mail reported that, "The report says that within the next 30 to 50 years, there will be 'substantial population displacements' due to global warming, and that those affected, whom it terms ‘climate-change refugees,' will need new water and sanitation services."

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.
