We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Our mission is to Defend Truth. Join Maverick Insider.

Hurricane Earl: Obama declares eastern seaboard state of emergency

US President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency for the states along the eastern seaboard of the US as Hurricane Earl approaches the shores. States from Massachusetts to North Carolina are currently under threat, and authorities are still unsure whether the storm will merely glide along the shore or move inland. The President has tasked the US Homeland Security and Federal Emergencies Management Agency (Fema) to co-ordinate disaster relief to allow the rapid deployment of resources should the hurricane threaten densely populated areas. Local officials are taking little chances as well, with the coast guard being moved to vulnerable areas in Virginia, and people living on islands off the coast of North Carolina being evacuated.
