The New Internationalist is an independent monthly not-for-profit magazine that reports on action for global justice. We believe in putting people before profit, in climate justice, tax justice, equality, social responsibility and human rights for all.
If you like the magazine and support what we do, perhaps you'd like to donate some money to help us reach a wider audience?
