Brexit is a big deal, and it will probably – to put it mildly – fuck everything up. Many realise this, yet still acknowledge other issues. Others, however, can’t indulge in any conversation without dragging it back to Brexit.

All Brexit, all the time

If you’re on social media, you’ll have experienced this. You’ll tweet about NHS underfunding, and one of them will say:

After Brexit, we won’t even have syringes. Doctors will get your blood out with a sharpened straw and a good suck.

You’ll post a picture of your cat and be told:

Hold on to that – you’ll need a ready source of protein when the food riots start.

You tell the world you’re getting married, and someone will say:

I used to be married to something called the European Union. I just hope you aren’t forcibly divorced against your will like I was #SomethingBlue

Of course, if you ever point out there are issues other than Brexit, they’ll say:

But Brexit will make them all worse!

They’ll also refuse to talk about these other issues. Almost as if they only care about things that directly affect them.

If you yourself are finding it difficult to talk about something other than Brexit, don’t worry. With any luck, it will all be sorted in 10-50 years or so.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
