Skwawkbox is offered free to all and depends on the voluntary support of its readers. It is also a founder member of Socialist Telly, the online station set up to give working-class people a voice, and has invested significantly in equipment, software and subscriptions to help build and improve Socialist Telly’s output and ability to interact with viewers.
Below are just a few examples of recent output on key issues largely ignored by other media, especially the so-called ‘mainstream’:
- a programme showcasing the impact of the government’s racist policies – and Labour’s own discrimination – against Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people, one of the most moving in which Skwawkbox has been involved
- a live and interactive programme giving black activists the opportunity to respond directly to the Tories’ whitewash report claiming that the UK does not disadvantage people from ethnic minorities
- exposure of the Labour leadership’s often-racist war on members’ free speech and their democratic selections in Liverpool, London, the West Midlands and elsewhere
- revelations about Keir Starmer’s plan to abstain on the racist and anti-free speech policing bill – until the Clapham Common scandal forced a u-turn
- a coordinated attack by Starmer’s office on a Labour MP and a union leader for honest analysis of the party’s prospects in Hartlepool
- exclusive revelations about the alleged conduct of Labour’s right-wing West Midlands mayoral candidate
- the track record of the Labour right’s disgraced challenger for the Unite union leadership, while the ‘MSM’ tried to whitewash it and facilitate smears
- revelations about the Labour right’s manoeuvres against Starmer
- the fact that Labour MPs had refused to campaign for imposed and controversial right-winger Paul Williams
- continuing Westminster interference in Scottish and Welsh politics
- an exposé of Labour’s procurement practices favouring the wife and friends of the party’s acting general secretary with no competitive process
These are just a few of the ways in which Skwawkbox, which is has exposed and inconvenienced both the Tories and the Labour right since the last update.
