A message from the editor
Dear 4sm readers, old and new, fellow political prisoners, revolutionaries, activists, allies, friends and supporters, 2015, will be a year of some necessary changes for www.4strugglemag.org.
From its beginning 11 years ago, 4sm set out to publish 3 hardcopy issues a year. We also publish each edition online. Until about a year ago we were mostly successful in coming out 3 times a year. At this point we have put out 24 issues (all back issues remain online). As you know prisoners receive 4sm for no charge and the online edition is also free. The large majority of hardcopies are mailed to prisoners across the usa. We do receive some donations and are always ready to accept paid subscriptions and donations.
The reality is, 4strugglemag is the primary voice of political prisoners in the United States. 4sm is a small and totally volunteer operation. We are dedicated and committed to putting out this unique, independent, and we feel, necessary revolutionary voice of political prisoners. In order to continue putting out 4sm, we will cut back to 2 hardcopy issues a year. They will be published in July and December. These two issues will also still be published online. In addition, 4sm will put up monthly updates, features and news articles online. In total 4sm will be putting out more information, but only 2 paper magazine issues.
Keep sending us your feedback, insight and information. And certainly, we always need your financial support too. You can subscribe and donate here.
For Freedom, Justice, Peace and the Revolutionary future our Planet and so many of its people need,
Jaan Laaman — editor + anti-imperialist political prisoner
