New Internationalist is an Oxford-based monthly magazine that punches far, far above its weight. Its investigative journalists are the best-briefed in their areas and its campaigns in favour of global fairness, equity and humane polities as of right are righteous.

Here’s a timeline – http://newint.org/about/timeline/ – with some of the magazine’s  activities marked. Of course, as its music columnist (I think that my first piece for them was about Brit ragga musician Apache Indian in the early 1990s), I’m prejudiced but I also know what I’m talking about when I wish NI and all who sail in her many more years of what they’re doing.
