On Monday 29 October 2018, Canary editor-in-chief Kerry-Anne Mendoza gave the inaugural Alternative Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture. This followed a period of sustained attack and smear campaigns by the establishment media that resulted in the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) National Executive Council rescinding its own Black Members’ Council invitation to Kerry-Anne to give the 2018 Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture. This podcast is everything they didn’t want you to hear.

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.
