Solidarity Against Inequality: Anti-Poverty Assembly

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 04:00

Ontario remains a wealthy province inflicted with the disease of poverty. The only way to reverse the trend towards greater inequality is through broad and diverse organizing to demand meaningful change at every level.

The Ontario Common Front and the Ontario Federation of Labour are calling on you to join students, workers, retirees and community and anti-poverty activists at an Anti-Poverty Assembly on April 17 and 18 at the University of Toronto. Together, we will draft, develop and launch a “Solidarity Against Inequality” campaign, designed to put pressure on the governments of Ontario and Canada to take meaningful and immediate action to end poverty in all of its forms.

WHEN: 5:30 p.m. on April 17 through to 6:00 p.m. on April 18, 2015
WHERE: OISE Building, 252 Bloor St. W., University of Toronto

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.
