Choose Project Real Democracy over Project Fear

The way in which Project Fear has saturated both sides of the official European Union referendum campaigns is reason enough to reject them and replace Westminster’s discredited political system with Project Real Democracy.

Adnan al-Sayegh, a leading Iraqi poet living in exile in London, was surprised when he came across a thesis on the Internet, comparing him to Wilfred Owen whose poetry about the horrors of the First World War had done so much to bring the agony of the soldiers and the futility of that war to the public.

The untold story of the Cuban revolution

For many, the Cuban Revolution remains a bit of a mystery. How could 80 guerillas led by Fidel Castro and Che Guevarra seize power? How were a small band of revolutionaries able to land on a deserted beach, re-group in the mountains and eventually march on Havana. Review by Peter Arkell.

New Tory laws against the trade unions, pushed rapidly through Parliament by the Tory government, are a barely disguised attempt to destroy them as effective organisations. Behind the onslaught is the state’s determination to blunt any force that could challenge the government’s reactionary big business policies.

FAB Nothing
All or nothing

The sombre blacks and greys of NOTHING’s cover give away nothing. But even a health warning might not be sufficient to prepare you for the terrible beauty that is born in the cosmic explosions that are Frances Aviva Blane’s paintings.
