Editorial – September 2008

This magazine is many things. It is an invitation, a call-to-arms and a cri-de-cœur. But above all it is a labour of love and we want you to share with us the utter joy and pride we feel in bringing it out to the world, time after time, edition after edition, against all odds.

Welcome to a new issue of Ceasefire.

This magazine is many things. It is an invitation, a call-to-arms and a cri-de-cœur. But above all it is a labour of love and we want you to share with us the utter joy and pride we feel in bringing it out to the world, time after time, edition after edition, against all odds.

In this issue, we have an unprecedented range of interviews: with Noam Chomsky, unarguably “the greatest intellectual alive”; Michael Albert, the founding father (or uncle) of Participatory Economics and Znet; Norman Finkelstein, the US firebrand academic and bestselling author of Beyond Chutzpah, and Gavin Hayes, General Secretary of the influential pressure group Compass.

We have news and comment, a number of feature articles tackling grand political themes, as well as pieces on books and music. We believe our world needs everyone of us to be aware, informed, atuned and we believe the contents of this magazine will set you thinking about possibilities, hopes and challenges.

For anyone who wants to understand the world, to find out what the issues of our time are and how we can best address them, this magazine is not a bad place to start. Please join us, read the magazine, visit our website, subscribe if you can and tell all your friends, they’ll thank you for it.

Welcome aboard and enjoy!

Peace, etc.
Hicham
