A person is pictured dressed as the grim reaper, in a long black hooded robe, carrying a scythe. A mess of blonde hair is sticking out from under the hood, and a blue tie hangs around the neck. In one hand is a sheaf of papers with the words “PPE contract” on them. A speech bubble reads “We did everything we could”.

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?
