France Resists

Andrew Butler

The Canary’s John McEvoy reports from the streets of Paris, where there are ongoing strikes against pension reforms and cuts to social welfare, and the iconic yellow vest (gilets jaunes) protests have entered their 67th week.

He also follows a delegation from France to the protests outside Julian Assange’s extradition hearing in London.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
