A green transport trolley with “COVID-19” written on the side is on a set of tracks. One track leads to a group of people who are tied to the track, the other track leads to a pile of money. A figure that looks like Boris Johnson is on the side of the tracks and has pulled a lever so that the trolley will head towards the people on the track.
The text reads:
COVID-19 Trolley Problem. You know it is unsafe for everyone to return to work but shareholders are losing money. Just remember to shout “we are following the science!” as you pull the lever.
We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
