Introduction to Issue 20
Readers, fellow activists and revolutionaries, welcome to issue 20 (Winter, 2011-2012).
This issue is a little different. Most of it is a retrospective, a look back at some of the issues, information and dialogue 4sm has brought forward. We are reprinting select articles from issue 1 through 19. We also have a short reminder (with the name of the article, issue and page numbers), of some of the detailed and theoretical pieces, including entire booklets, 4sm has printed.
We think these writings have continuing value, especially for all the righteous activists and occupiers putting the issue of social and economic justice out loud and strong, to the country and the world. These longer pieces are worth checking out or checking out again.
We do have some new words, including material on the Occupy movement, an update of the struggle from Pelican Bay State Prison, and more.
This issue is coming to you about one month later than scheduled. When you read my words, “Death,” you will understand the delay.
Issue 21 will be coming out in March. Remember we welcome your ideas and insight — from prison cells to occupy sites and beyond — the Freedom Struggle is what 4strugglemag does.
RED Season’s Greetings, Kwanzaa Greetings, and positive and healthful New Year’s Greetings of struggle, to each and everyone of you! From 4sm and its People,
Jaan Laaman, editor
