Please support the SKWAWKBOX

 

journalism-as-it-should-be

The SKWAWKBOX has become one the most influential of the ‘new left media’, attacked and copied in roughly equal measure by mainstream media and journalists and with a significant impact on the UK’s political narrative, as well as bringing Labour Party supporters information they wouldn’t otherwise know about.

By design, we operate on a different model, offering all our content free of charge – we even pay extra for hosting to remove all ads, to ensure there’s nothing impeding the readability of the site. Getting good information out to people is the overriding priority.

The SKWAWKBOX also receives no funding from any organisation, so our independence can’t be compromised. This means that we depend completely on the support of our readers.

So if you’re able to do so without hardship, please do consider helping the work via one or both of the steps below:

  1. clicking here to make a one-off or modest regular donation via PayPal
  2. sharing this article on your social media

Thanks for your support!

  2. I’m already trying to help – I set up a £3 per month direct debit about 12 months ago – and I’d help more if finances permitted but I’m actively raising funds and shopping for food and supplies, and giving as much cash as I can afford and the cash I can raise from friends (including Facebook friends), to support a wonderful group of people who are camping out in West Dorset while trying to prevent the dishonest government plans for shooting of innocent badgers.

  3. I tried to donate yesterday and today. I suspect the problem may be my end but wondered if anyone else was having problems. I donate with a card.

    I complete the page and click donate, the please wait timer page remains and the transaction is not completed. I waited 3 mins just now then closed the page. Same yesterday. Nothing has been taken from my bank account, so no worries my donation has gone astray…

  4. Hate of the day is having to treat every email from Labour as suspicious because it’s got McNicol’s fucking name on it…

  5. I agree with Seans verdict this is what I call ‘proper journalism’ the stuff the MSM fails to provide, with such an undertaking I’m more than happy to overlook the occasional mistake

  6. I would like some criticism of Jon Landsman. But never likely to see any here. Bet you don’t even let this comment be posted.

      • I have searched the site with the word “Landsman’ and I get no matches.

      • Sorry spelled name wrong. However the articles reveal very little criticism of Lansman nor has there been any discussion on his stand on the IHRA definition of antisemitism.

  7. Sorry, I know this doesn’t really belong here but threads get old in WP’s format – move it or dump it it if you need to.

    Chap called Liam Parker on FB We Support JC shared this link to a piece that gave me a sense of relief that I’m not the only one thinks we’ve been walking on eggshells around the AS mongers for too long.

    This last paragraph sums it up quite well for me.

    “In order to put an end to this, there has to be a decisive repudiation of this political blackmail. Bernie Sanders was brutally pressured to back down on his claim that Israel had used disproportionate force during its 2014 assault on Gaza. He wouldn’t budge, he wouldn’t retreat. He showed real backbone. Corbyn should take heart and inspiration from Bernie’s example. He has to say: no more reports, no more investigations, we’re not going there any more. The game is up. It’s long past time that these antisemitism-mongers crawled back into their sewer – but not before humbly apologising to Naz Shah, and begging her forgiveness.”

  8. Great to see Skwawkbox back and if the site is being deliberately attacked it is a back handed compliment – it must be doing a bloody good job!
    Some of us don’t like sending money electronically but if you could set up a P.O. Box address I am sure many would be happy to send cheques made out to ‘Skwawkbox’ or whatever.
    Keep up the good work!
    Solidarity!
