The struggle for press freedom is a global one. From Belfast to Belarus, the security of journalists and the ability of media outlets to investigate the powerful are very often under threat. Four journalists from across the world come together to share experiences and speak about the challenges of being a journalist in 2021.


Pablo Pérez – Mexican independent journalist focusing on human rights, politics and social movements.

Ayşe Güney – Editor at Jin News is an all-women’s media outlet based in Amed (Diyarbakır)

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.
