A person who looks like Boris Johnson, wearing suit and a yellow safety jacket, is saying “Care homes simply failed to follow the advice we did not provide”. He is standing next to a digger, with words on the side that read “How long can we get away with this?”.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.

    1. Far be it from me to consider the Prime Minister other than a serial liar, who is wholly unfit for the job and who heads one of the most incompetent cabinets of my 70+ years, but the infection rate, death rate and procedures followed in care homes needs to be examined. The majority of these are privatised and the role and duties of the owners has not been examined in the public media. Managers have been interviewed, but, they are employees. We have see almost nothing of the owners and, for example their contractual duties towards those living in the homes and their duty of care to their employees. This has been as much an omission within the ‘left’ media as with the rest. Indeed, early in the epidemic, the Morning Star quoted, without identification, a statement which had been issued by the owner of a number of care homes, an active member of the Conservative Party and a funder of a right wing unionist organisation, which attacked the Scottish Government.
