Quick Overview

Internet Showdown

Inside this issue:
Internet rights are the human rights of the future - and a global community of computer geeks wants to help you secure them. December's issue of New Internationalist gets all techie, dives into the world of free and open source software and meets those digital pioneers offering protection from snooping governments and marketeers.

We get behind the masks of political hackers Anonymous, with writer Quinn Norton, and marvel at designs - that are free to use, change and share - for new technologies for everything from prosthetics to small-scale hydroelectric power. We dip our toes into the weird and wonderful world of the 'makers' whose 3D-printers are turning data into the new raw material, while taking to task outdated and overbearing copyright laws along the way.

Plus - American mischief in the Sahara. A shocking report by African expert Jeremy Keenan on the escalating conflict in Mali reveals that the US and other Western powers have been colluding with the Algerian secret service to create terrorist incidents that justify the wider 'war on terror' in the region.

Plus inside:
Peter Tatchell: 'Don't outlaw hate speech'
Walmart workers rebel
The birth of Sollywood
Pakistani boys dying for oil
Why Mohammed Ali loves Birmingham



New Internationalist tackles today’s most challenging global issues, confronts inequality and injustice and reports on positive changes happening around the world. An established leader of independent media since 1973, New Internationalist is written for our readers and funded by them. We have no media baron breathing down our necks or corporate advertisers telling us what to do.
