Under the heading “The Old Bill” is an illustration of a group of protesters carrying placards. The placards read ‘trans rights’, ‘climate justice’, ‘workers rights’, ‘BLM’, and ‘disability rights’. The police are illustrated dragging protests away and restraining them. Next to a restrained protester is a placard on the ground reading ‘rights 4 women’.

Below this is the heading “The New Bill – *Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill”. This is illustrated with a prison and four protesters leaning out of the barred windows. They are holding signs reading ‘BLM’, ‘women’s rights’ and ‘workers unite’.


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?
