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 ...
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.
