This cartoon begins by depicting a smiling person holding a shopping bag and standing in front of a counter with a big sign that reads “Fresh Seafood”. On the counter are are three containers with labels as follows; the first is labelled “prawns”and contains five prawns, the next is labelled “catch of the day” and contains one big dead fish, the final one is labeled “fish” and contains four dead fish. Beneath that, the same person is depicted looking unhappy and is standing next to a counter with a big sign that reads “What you don’t see food”. On that counter are the following three labelled containers; the first is labelled “slavery” and contains four ball and chains, the next is labelled “Bycatch of the day” and is filled to overflowing with a whole host of dead ocean creatures, including dolphins, sharks and rays. The final bin is labelled “ocean plastics” and is overflowing with fishing nets, one of which has a turtle tangled in it.
We need your help to keep speaking the truth
Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.
Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.
We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.
In return, you get:
* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop
Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.
With your help we can continue:
* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do
We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
