This cartoon begins with the headline “If G7 action on climate change was the fire service”. Under that is an illustration of a person with a panicked look on their face and their hands in the air, standing in front of a burning car.  Next to them is a firefighter with “G7 ” written on their jacket and a line of firefighters holding a hose. The panicked person is saying to the firefighter “Are you here to put out the fire?”. The next panel shows the line of fire fighters handing out sacks of money from a container labelled ‘fossil fuel subsidies” to people in suits. The panicked person is now standing next to their burnt-out smouldering car looking sad, and the fire fighter next to them is holding up papers covered in pound signs and the words “airlines” and “oil & gas” and saying “No! We’re giving public money to the arsonists”.

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?
