English anti-Islamist activist Tommy Robinson will be in court this week to find out whether he should go through another contempt of court hearing, which could send him to jail, over his live stream outside a Leeds courtroom last summer. True North’s Andrew Lawton is in London to cover the case, given how flawed British press coverage has been of the case.

There’s another reason: Canada and the UK are cohosting a press freedom summit in just a couple of months, yet the UK is the country that sent Robinson to jail for covering a case the mainstream media refused to.

True North is crowdfunding to cover that summit. Please make a contribution here: https://tnc.news/help-us-crowdfund-our-press-freedom-summit-coverage/

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
