Jeremy Corbyn spent Seder with Jewdas – a group of left-wing Jewish people. Jewdas may not have been the most prudent group to have met with right now considering some of its views, but these views do not mean its members are not Jewish.

These bloggers do provide a valuable service, though. Bigotry can be quite confusing after all, and we need someone to list which groups do/don’t deserve our prejudice.

When it was pointed out that this statement was in itself antisemitic, Guevara responded:

Yes, but only against the bad ones.


Despite Rodney Guevara’s history of vileness, that didn’t stop several Labour MPs from lapping up its latest expulsion like hungry dogs on vomit.

When it was suggested that the MPs sharing material from hate-mongers possibly don’t even understand antisemitism, one of them remarked:

Nonsense. Some of my best friends are Semites.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
