Jackie Walker and Graham Bash are Jewish anti-racist activists who spent years in the Labour Party yet were accused of antisemitism for standing up for the rights of Palestinians and People of Colour. Now, Bash has been expelled from the party, after Walker was too in 2019. In this interview with Canary co-founder Kerry-Anne Mendoza they speak candidly about how devastating this has been and what we all need to do to stand up against bullying and racism. .
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.
