Vivienne Westwood is the canary in the coal mine for Julian Assange

This morning Vivienne Westwood took part in a bold demonstration as part of the campaign to prevent Julian Assange from being extradited to the United States.

To find out more about this issue, watch our film Assange: truth on trial.

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?

    1. I fear for Julian”s life whilst he is being held in such harsh conditions, including strip searches on his way to court etc. If ever there were 2 perfect examples of what the leaders of the free world (the USA!!) are about then take what happens to a Journalist/Publisher revealing American forces war crimes and how long Jeffery Epstein got away with sex trafficking children ! Both were known about by the relevant authorities but only one was actively pursued !!

      The yanks wouldn’t know a democracy if it rose up and slapped them in the face !defenders of the free world my arse !! Defenders of democracy HA ! I think Venezuela might contest that !! But doubt Saudi Arabia would !! I worry for the world whilst the nutters are in charge

    2. Well done Vivienne. By this time in your life you are part of the mainstream and as such you have braved the consequences of your outspokeness. Pity there are so few so-called ‘celebrities’ who are prepared to take time out from their desperate atteempts to maintain their ‘demographic’ presence among Ukanian peasants to stand up and speak out for the freedom to express the truth.
