Venezuela is currently in the headlines. But the mainstream media narrative isn’t always as it seems. Much of the coverage has been skewed against president Nicolás Maduro and his government.

So, Canary journalist and broadcaster Steve Topple spoke to international journalist and trailblazer Max Blumenthal. He is currently on the ground in Venezuela, observing the political, economic and social situation. In an overarching, must-listen interview, Topple and Blumenthal discuss the current crisis, what ordinary citizens in Venezuela are saying and the torrid history of US-led corporate interventionism.

It’s essential listening:

Presented, produced and edited by Steve Topple.

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.
