The front page of a newspaper is illustrated. The masthead of the paper reads “Owner is a Tory donor”. Next to that is a box reading “Thanks ma’am! New Jubilee Bank Holiday”. The main headline dominating the front page is “In a spin! Man employed by No. 10 leaves”. The subheadline reads “Other man to get job. More inside”. Beneath that is a headline reading “UK economy bounces back!” Next to that is a much smaller box with the headline “UK Covid deaths hit 50,000”. The text is so small that a magnifying glass is illustrated over the text to make it visible.

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?
