The Canary published its first article on 6 October 2015. Five years later, editor-at-large Kerry-Anne Mendoza takes us on a rollercoaster ride through all the ups and downs, the tragedies and the triumphs. She shows us that The Canary is now stronger and more determined than ever to create a world that works for everyone.

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.
