Image description

A sound recordist, cameraman and reporter are on a boat called “HMS #AllLivesMatter” flying a SKY news flag. Next to them is another boat called “The Voyeur” with a cameraman onboard flying a BBC flag. In front of the boats is a small, crowded rubber dinghy with six people aboard.

The reporter on the SKY boat is saying “Whoever can tell us Churchill’s wife’s middle name wins a free life jacket!” to the people in the dinghy. Beneath the image are the words “SKY NEWS: Migrantwatch Live”.

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.
