CanaryPod 23 July 2017 – School is out for the summer (Part 2)
Following on from Friday’s ‘end of term’ special, in this week’s episode The Canary’s Editor in Chief, Kerry-Anne Mendoza (@TheMendozaWoman), talks with Steve Topple (@MrTopple) about two stories from the news this week: The treatment of child sexual assault survivors by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and the DPAC protests at the last PMQs of the parliamentary term.
If you want to find out more about some of the other topics touched on:
Theresa May’s government won’t compensate children who were raped. It says they ‘consented’ to the abuse
Corbyn and May’s final PMQs of the summer was nearly shut down today. But you won’t see it on the BBC [VIDEO]

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.
