‘I always tell my friends being in Rwanda is like pitching your tent in the land of hope’ says Clarisse Iribagiza, a recent returnee to the country.

Rwandan photographers tell stories of the country's painful past and hopeful future. But, 'in honouring the memories of almost a million Rwandans, the shame of the international community must not be buried', writes Lydia James.

Mohammed Alazraq, a Palestinian resident of Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, recently agreed to write for New Internationalist but on 26 March he was arrested by Israeli soldiers at four in the morning. Yesterday he was admitted to hospital after suffering injuries from beatings during days of interrogation.

His body may be imprisoned, but his words are not.

Every year, thousands of Saharawi young women leave refugee camps in southern Algeria in search of a better future, while their families remain in exile for years. Many of them have become activists, defending their people's cause around the world.

Mexico has the fastest-growing wind power industry in the world, making it an important case study in the first steps of a global transition towards renewable energy. However, in the windy Isthmus region of Oaxaca, this rapid growth has been accompanied by ongoing conflict and social unrest that puts the future of these projects in jeopardy.

Kate Smurthwaite is a British stand-up comedian and political activist and soon-to be columnist for New Internationalist magazine.

Her debut concerns two muppet like characters Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage debating immigration (sorry, the EU) for an hour on the Beeb.

'We write as sub-Saharan immigrants currently residing in Morocco. We want to communicate our inhumane living conditions and the difficulties we have living on the border between Casiago, Morocco and Ceuta, near Spain. If today we have decided to be heard it is because for the last 6 months our tears have fallen without stopping.'

In the wake of Occupy, some community organizers are interested in questioning the old divide between ‘movements’ and ‘organizations’ – and in harnessing the power of both.

'Global brands have spoken out against the treatment of striking workers and supported calls to raise wages in Cambodia, but many say that they too are part of the problem [...] Mass faintings at factories across Cambodia are a regular occurrence and military police have supported enforced overtime by helping owners to trap employees inside workplaces.'

Introduction
With 40 years of publishing under its belt, and more than 45,000 subscribers worldwide, New Internationalist magazine is renowned for its radical, campaigning stance on a range of world issues, from the cynical marketing of babymilk in the Majority World to human rights in Burma.

Publications from the New Internationalist are produced by an independent trust working as a not-for-profit cooperative. Because the New Internationalist operates as a not-for-profit, income from sales of publications and gifts goes into the production of our titles and to spread our aims and ideals, not into a rich media tycoon’s pocket!

The New Internationalist magazine is published ten times a year. It sets out to explain and inform, giving readers the essentials of a subject in a concise, easy-to-read full-colour format with excellent photos and graphics. We also produce a range of books, calendars and diaries that bring you the clearest, most accessible reference sources about our complex world. Our mail order catalogue and online shop sell a wide range of books, clothes, food, and other fair trade and organic&nbsp;gifts.</p>
