Expansion of this UK government programme could be the biggest threat to our democracy yet

According to recently-unearthed documents, people who have participated in a demonstration, are members of a political campaign group, or who have fought the government’s cuts, can become a target of a government programme that monitors ‘extremism’.

The truth about the government’s Big Ben contractor and its leading role in the worker blacklisting scandal

Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd (SRM) was recently given the contract to refurbish Big Ben. Now, evidence (some of it confidential) seen by The Canary, together with court and inquiry transcripts, suggests SRM’s role in blacklisting was far greater than previously thought. And this poses the question of whether the company should retain this contract – and any other public sector ones.

This Kurdish journalist fled persecution in Iran, only to be jailed by Australia for being a refugee

A Kurdish journalist and poet fled Iran to seek asylum in Australia. But Australian authorities incarcerated him on the remote Manus Island (Papua New Guinea). He has since made a film of what it’s like there. And its international premiere will be at the 2017 BFI London Film Festival in October.

An ‘army’ of Aussie citizens takes a stand against modern-day ‘concentration camps’

 

During World War Two, people across Europe risked their lives to offer sanctuary to refugees escaping from the Nazis. And today, amid another refugee crisis, citizens are once again coming together to protect some of the world’s most vulnerable people. In Australia, men, women and children are being forced back to the notorious Nauru and Manus Island refugee detention centres (which some critics have called “concentration camps”). But a whole ‘army’ of citizens is now mobilising to stop this, with the backing of international law.

A British film shows us how to build a post-capitalist world right here, right now

 

In 2015, the Exeter-sponsored film-makers at Enfable travelled to Spain to make a movie about a post-capitalist co-operative in Catalonia. More recently, a two-day conference in an Athens squat included updates on the work of that co-operative.
