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?

    1. If ever you need evidence of just how low we have become in representing true democratic values and how much we are just lap dogs to the USA, then Julian Assange and the way he is being treated should be your first port of call.

      I have followed his pre trial and all the other legal procedures with great interest and paid attention to what and how the legal process looks like from the outside. I have no doubt at all having read transcripts and documents from these proceedings, that Julian stands absolutely no chance whatsoever of being acquitted, and for one simple reason which is the Yankee invaders are instructing and ordering what the outcome will be. Again having spent many hours reading and watching everything I can get on the trial and Julian, it is absolutely clear to me that if he were to get a fair extradition hearing he would be released as a free man. Instead he is subjected to being held in this country’s most secure prison and is strip searched regularly even on his way to the court.

      Our MSM is complicit in his “torture” (UN special envoy’s word not mine) and are a bloody disgrace to journalism. The have become cut and paste specialists and have lost the art of investigative journalism. The BBC in particular might as well just publish and quote the daily Tory briefings and admit doing so because that’s exactly what they appear to be doing.

      1. It’s interesting. I follow Julian’s Case as much as you have, and have the same interest that you do in the case, but unfortunately we are on opposite sides here. Julian has committed more than enough Espionage to be in jail for the rest of his life. But I will be reasonable and just expect 10 to 20 years in an American SuperMAX Prison. Then, and only then will he have learned that you just can’t go around publishing Stolen, Classified Government Documents and you just can’t go around publishing Stolen E-Mail’s of Prominent Democrats in the Unites States, such as Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and the Democratic National Committee………

    2. Stolen democracy is being defended here for which there are no rules given us by Authority.
      I doubt he will ever be released as well for torture is what they love to do without any compromise brought about by us who live within the spirit of democracy.
      England is guilty of torture as well by being complicit in its treatment of Julian Assange . It has no identity any longer as a nation but as a puppet state for the use of America’s military desires.
      Surely one can pause on this topic for questioning?
      How far are people willing to lose their culltural identity for the purpose of waging illegal wars as America continues to do.
      Why not not Vote in America’s election, instead of having English elections. At least it would be an honest reflection. Why settle for anything original like a country called England?
