We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?

    1. Well said Curtis.
      This must be the time to campaign against the unequal society.
      UK society is corrupt and unequal.
      The Monarch sits at the top of this unequal state.
      She is its figurehead and symbol.
      A head of state who is only there because of who her father was.
      Ridiculous !
      But – Look at the Labour Party.
      It leader – Kier Starmer KCB – Knight Commander of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath.
      Equally ridiculous !
      The rich and powerful must be laughing their hats off.

    2. It shows what utter control the establishment exerts offer education and the media. That a large portion of the UKs population are completely taken in by the cult of monarchy. How ordinary people will show unwavering loyalty and deference to a privileged family whose wealth was built on the misery and subjugation of their ancestors.

    3. The monarchy, with its extensive extended family, resides in splendour and rancour at the pinnacle of a monstrous pyramid of archaic privilege comprised of an assortment of dukes, duchesses, princes, princesses, lords, ladies and god knows how many recipients of bestowed ‘honours’. As Curtis says, this is grotesque and has no place in a society professing to be democratic, with everyone equal under just law. No country which allows/delights in the existence of such a weird construction can claim to be a true democracy. It’s time we grew up and let go the hand of nanny.
