Support us and go ad-free

At times when the drums of war beat loudest, we need to remember, recognise, and protect the important role played by whistleblowers. In the first of two exclusive interviews (above) Lowkey talks about Julian Assange and the need for media to question and hold power to account.

In part two (below), Lowkey explains how our online data is used by the state and corporations to monitor and manipulate us. He also discusses the importance of supporting whistleblowers who work to expose this.
