The June 2010 edition of No One Is Illegal Radio features perspectives from Makoma Lekalakala (Johannesburg) & Njoki Njehu (Nairobi) about the G8/G20 and self-determination by Africans, in the lead-up to the upcoming protests in Toronto later this month. Makoma and Njoki address: celebrity activism, African social movements, debt relief versus reparations, climate change in Africa, the role of South Africa in the G20, and the G8-promoted New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD). Both Makoma and Njoki offer a special message for protesters who will take the streets of Toronto against the G8/G20 later this month.
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.
