This cartoon depicts the planet Earth engulfed in flames. Flying around it are three space ships. One is long and pink and emblazoned with the Amazon logo and words “Blue Origin”. There is a speech bubble coming from it that reads “The engineers told me it was the most aerodynamic shape”. The next space ship is shaped like a plane and has the Virgin logo on it. A speech bubble coming from it reads “It’s a taxless environment… just like earth”.  The final one is a grey rocket and has the Space X logo on the side. A speech bubble coming from that one reads “I can see most of my houses from here”.

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.
