CanaryPod special – Alternative Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture

CanaryPod

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’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help

Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.

We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.

But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
