This is what solidarity looks like! Striking homecare workers in #Unison have joined with striking bin workers in #Unite on picket lines in Birmingham this morning. Fighting back together against attacks from Birmingham council. Unity is strength!@UNISONBham @UniteWestMids pic.twitter.com/tz3kdVe1JU

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.
