CanaryPod 16 September 2017 – bombs, badgers, and bigotry
This week, Nancy talks to Editors, Emily Apple and John Ranson and Canary writer, Tamara Micner. We look at the impact of protests against the DSEi arms fair, the arguments for and against the badger cull, and the latest figures on antisemitism in the UK.
For more information on the topics discussed:
The government has just admitted the badger cull isn’t working. But it’s going to kill another 30,000 of them anyway
The level of antisemitism in Britain has been exposed. But it’s not what you might think.
Presented by Nancy Mendoza (@NancyWMendoza) speaking with Emily Apple (@emilyapple), John Ranson (@John_Ranson), Tamara Micner (@TamaraMicner).

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.
