04:05
New Internationalist is running a community share offer. We invite you to become a media pioneer & buy into journalism with facts and heart. Read more information below or buy your share now: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/new-internationalist We are building a movement for media that brings people together. And you can own it. Inequality is rising, our climate is changing and nationalist leaders are gaining ground. But fake news and media monopolies are spreading misinformation. To handle what's coming we need knowledge - not click bait. And all the while, the challenges of the information age are making it harder than ever for independent media like us to survive. For the past 44 years, we have published stories that make sense of the complex and beautiful world we live in and offer bold, bright ideas for how to change things. This is journalism that has the power to bring people together. As we print our 500th edition, we are opening up the very core of our organisation by inviting YOU to join us as co-owners. The funds we raise will help us to get our stories out to more people than ever before. What's the story? Unlike other media businesses that depend on billionaires or corporate advertisers, we want our honest, independent journalism to be owned by the people who share our values. We've always been reader-powered; now we want to be reader-owned. We aim to raise a minimum of £500,000 (US$ 625,000) through the world's biggest-ever media community share offer. This is an all-or-nothing funding drive - we've crunched the numbers and this is the sum we need to transform our business and set ourselves on a firm financial footing. 'In this time of fake news and endless online chatter, it’s more important than ever to have the New Internationalist' -- Lindsey Hilsum, International Editor, Channel 4 News. What do I get in return for investing? This is a big, bold offer to share with you our power and influence as a force for good. When you buy shares, you become a co-owner of New Internationalist, charged with keeping us on track and making sure we never stray from the ethical values that shape our journalism. To make this possible, we have adopted a new legal structure (see the Rules below) that allows for multiple stakeholders and has created the Common Council, an active forum for engaging with our work and strategic direction. Depending on how much you invest, we have some lovely rewards to say thank you, which range from limited edition organic cotton t-shirts and gift subscriptions to our magazine, to signed-books and lectures-to-order by our editors. 'You give voice to those people in the world who are not normally listened to' -- Vanessa, investor Who can buy shares? Anyone can invest, from anywhere in the world, as long as they are aged 16 or over. Each share costs £1 and the minimum share holding in £50, the maximum is £100,000. A small shareholder will have just as much power as a large one. 'It’s essential in these torrid times to fund projects for the long term. We need journalists with principles, time and resources' --Sue, investor How will the money be used? The share capital we raise will be used to increase our audience and impact, and secure our future long-term. It'll be directed at five key business areas, and we'll use it to: scale up our digital journalism, relaunch our magazine, boost our publishing arm and expand our Ethical Shop social enterprise and events programme. All offer opportunities to grow and are in line with our historic mission. For more detail see our Share Offer and Business Plan below and the New Internationalist Charter [pdf: https://factsandheart.org/files/2017-03-01-001_-_new_internationalist_charter.pdf]. Read Frequently Asked Questions to find out things like Can I make any money? What’s the worst that can happen? What if we don’t make our target, or exceed it?

With just over a week until polling day, the national debate has been littered with misleading statistics and abstract arguments. These two short interviews offer the progressive case both for and against UK membership of the EU, whilst also aiming to offer a better understanding of how the EU works. Part one features Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion.

Shut Down The Tar Sands!
 
01:47
New Internationalist magazine editor Jess Worth looks at why we need to shut down Canada's Tar Sands.As conventional sources of oil are running dry, or are too hazardous to extract, oil companies are turning to unconventional deposits of the black stuff. By far the largest is Canadas tar sands, the second biggest oil reserve in the world. The past decade has seen a black gold rush of unprecedented proportions, and the tar sands development in Alberta is now the largest industrial development on earth. But it is also, perhaps, the most destructive. New Internationalist exposes the severe human and environmental costs of Canadas dramatic transformation from global good guy to corrupt petro-state, and profiles some of the key figures in what is shaping up to be an iconic struggle in the effort to drag the world back from the brink of a fossil fuel-dependent future.
The transgender revolution
 
04:38
It’s in the air – and calling for a mindset reset. New Internationalist co-editor Vanessa Baird introduces our October magazine looking at the transgender revolution. In this magazine we track the course of transgender rights and their liberating potential for us all, with compelling contributions from trans writers and artists. The human rights of transgender people are routinely abused everywhere, but Brazil has the highest murder rate. From there, Amanda Palha analyses the roots of transphobia. And CN Lester lists ‘9 seriously easy things’ non-trans people can do to help instead of hinder. That may involve letting go of some deep-set prejudices and fixed ideas about gender.

Burkina Faso - Agriculture: Women's Work
 
08:06
This video has been excerpted from 'Man Made Famine', for New Internationalist 's Burkina Faso hub (launching soon), hosting our January/February 2017 magazine, and related in-depth country coverage stretching back to 1985. You can access the full length video here: nin.tl/2iOQ8ry Description: Women farmers in Africa are not given a fair deal. This documentary argues that neglect of women farmers is a major reason for famine in Africa. Three quarters of Africa's food is grown by women, but most of Africa's land is owned by men, and most agricultural investment, advice and technology is given to men. The focus is on one village and one woman respectively from Burkino Faso, Kenya and Zimbabwe, whose stories were originally compiled in the film, WITH THESE HANDS. This documentary was made by the New Internationalist Magazine, helped by Oxfam and a number of other development agencies.

Live from TWT: An Internationalist Labour Party? w/ Karma Nabulsi, Richard Seymour & others.
 
18:54
Corbyn’s foreign policy is a huge source of his support, especially among younger members who grew up in the ‘war on terror’. However, it’s also his greatest departure from the consensus – not simply within the British state but also the Labour Party, which has often been supportive of destructive foreign military interventions. How can we make the party into a genuinely internationalist organisation? Come and discuss the history of Labour’s relationship to empire and interventionism and hear concrete proposals for how Labour deals with colonial injustices and supports oppressed people around the world.
Audiovisual Storytelling as a Tool for Global Grassroots Change | Augusta Thomson | TEDxOxford
 
07:23
This talk uses the story of Senna, a young woman from Peru, and one of the main subjects of the documentary film, Girl Rising, as the starting point for a discussion about global grassroots change. Augusta Thomson, Girl Rising UK Ambassador and former Director of Corporate Engagement, talks about the fundamental significance of the Girl Rising movement- a global movement to promote education for all. She explores the success of the media-driven grassroots momentum behind the film and action campaign. Thomson provides insight into the nature of the organization and its ripple-effect on global communities. She presents honest criticisms and concerns with the movement, and uses those concerns as a starting point for a larger discussion considering what global grassroots change really means and the significance of audio-visual storytelling in driving global grassroots change. The fundamental message of Thomson's talk is short and simple- taken directly from a poem written by Senna. Augusta X. Thomson (@AugustaXThomson) is a graduate of St. Hugh’s College, Oxford University, where she studied Archaeology and Anthropology. From 2013-2014 she worked as Director of Corporate Engagement and later, UK Ambassador, for the Girl Rising movement. As a Co-founder of Story Weavers Pictures, an independent production company in New York City, her work aims to provide marginalized communities with a storytelling platform. She is the Director of Learning from Lhagva, a documentary about the impact of new media technologies on Mongolian nomadic women. Her first documentary feature, Nine-Story Mountain, recorded the pilgrimage around Mount Kailash, in the far west of Tibet. From 2014-2015 she was a Fulbright-Nehru Researcher, in Ladakh, India. She is a freelance journalist and has had photographs and writing appear in The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Elle Canada, Women in the World, the New Internationalist, Geographical Magazine, Al Jazeera English, and Wellesley Magazine.

Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man - 24 minute
 
24:30
A fascinating 30 minute documentary exploring the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. Includes scenes from The West Wing TV show that featured the map as well as cartographic critiques that show the tension and conflict that the Peters map generated amongst the cartographic establishment. Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man was produced, shot and directed by Brookline, MA videographer Ruth Abrams. A collaborative project with her map-publisher son, Bob Abrams, this fascinating 30-minute documentary explores the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. The project took six years for Bob and Ruth to complete. It was filmed on-location at Dr. Peters' home in Bremen, Germany, as well as in Oxford, England, and a variety of locations in the USA. The film contains the only English-language interviews ever conducted with Arno Peters, who died in 2002, fifteen months after these interviews were filmed. The Peters World Map was a radical map, and as this film shows, Arno Peters was truly a remarkable man. His impact will be felt for generations to come. A DVD of the video, loaded with hours of bonus educational features, is available here: http://www.newint.com.au/shop/arno-peters-radical-map-2189.htm
Jeremy Corbyn 2008: ‘the twilight existence of migrant life’
 
08:27
The new Labour Party leader made prescient observations about the crisis of migration that ring true today. In 2008 New Internationalist hosted an evening of debate and discussion as part of its Clean Start campaign for the creation of a fair economy. Among the speakers was Jeremy Corbyn, then Labour MP for Islington North, now Labour Party leader. He spoke eloquently and passionately about the ‘twilight existence of migrant life’. His words provide insight into today’s current crisis dominating media headlines, and are as relevant today as they were in 2008. Other Clean Start speakers included: Ann Pettifor – Financial analyst; executive director of Advocacy International and a fellow of the new economics foundation Susan George – Author and global justice activist Walden Bello – Political analyst; executive director of Focus on the Global South John Hilary – Director, War on Want Chris Brazier – Co-editor, New Internationalist Vanessa Baird – Co-editor, New Internationalist Look out for the Jan/Feb 2016 edition of New Internationalist magazine, which will focus on migration.

Three reasons why the Paris climate talks should put the migrant crisis at the top of its agenda
 
06:13
The #COP21 negotiations should strongly consider how climate change affects the migrant crisis, argues New Internationalist Digital Editor Chris Spannos: The recent images from Europe and the Middle East of people fleeing war and persecution has shocked the world in both horror and tragedy. What role does climate change play in the displacement of people? This December, countries from around the world will meet in Paris for the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. The conference will aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, which is necessary to avoid the most disastrous effects of climate change. Here are 3 reasons why the migrant crisis should be at the top the agenda during the Paris negotiations. Reason 1: Climate change accelerates the displacement of people globally. Last year, environmental disasters displaced 22 million people from their homes. Since 2008 the numbers of those displaced as a result of climate change related disasters averages 26.4 million people per year. That's about 1 person per second. Reason 2: Syrian Refugees The wave of uprisings known as the 'Arab Spring' in 2011 resulted from the accumulation of many complex factors, not least people fighting for their basic freedoms. But, climate change also fanned the flames of social unrest. The depth of despair in the current Syrian war and refugee crisis has been compounded by drought, which first hit Syrian farmers and livestock in 2007. According to a 2011 United Nations’ report, 75% of the country’s farmers suffered 'total crop failure.' More than a year after the drought ended, the livestock population remained 50% below pre-drought levels. Successive crop failures have forced a million people to leave rural areas for cities which had already received and hosted some 2 million Iraqi refugees. If current rates of global greenhouse gas emissions continue, yields of rain-fed crops in Syria may decline between 29% and 57% before the year 2050. When you combine this level of crop failure with painful austerity measures – neoliberal economic policies which have profited the wealthy and squeezed ordinary citizens – rife human rights abuses and geo-strategic game playing between powerful countries such as Russia and the US, and mainly for access to carbon-emitting natural resources throughout the Middle East, what you have is a recipe for long-standing conflict, which is likely to force people to flee their homes to find safety, often at great risk and peril to their own lives and their loved ones. Reason 3: Many States thought that that migrant crisis was an important discussion point for the upcoming Paris climate conference, but it was removed from the final agenda. Those living on the periphery of world development, such as small island states and Bangladeshi and Syrian farmers, are among the first to be experiencing the impacts of climate change. Rising sea levels, heatwaves, floods and droughts have forced whole populations into conflict and emigration. Those who have and will suffer the most acutely are also those who are least responsible for the crisis to date. Even though previous international agreements have required states to limit carbon emissions, they have increased – with the US being among the top culprits. Many of the most vulnerable states wanted to talk about how the international community would coordinate humanitarian responses of emergency relief, replacement and compensation for those displaced by climate change. However in the process of hammering out a draft agreement, these important points were removed. Wealthier countries – who are also the most high polluting countries – likely wanted to remove any discussion points which might oblige them to clean up their historic and continuing mess by contributing financially or providing refuge to those displaced as a result of climate change. Even though the paragraph was removed it is possible a state can reintroduce it during the negotiations in Paris. And it is also possible that it can be reintroduced at a later stage. However, it's up to all of us to join the growing chorus of those concerned about the migrant crisis, to push it onto the agenda, for Paris and beyond.

Internet showdown - why digital freedom matters
 
02:40
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.
Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man. ODTMaps.com
 
30:53
A fascinating 30 minute documentary exploring the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. Includes scenes from The West Wing TV show that featured the map as well as cartographic critiques that show the tension and conflict that the Peters map generated amongst the cartographic establishment. Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man was produced, shot and directed by Brookline, MA videographer Ruth Abrams. A collaborative project with her map-publisher son, Bob Abrams, this fascinating 30-minute documentary explores the history of how the Peters Equal Area World Map came into being. The project took six years for Bob and Ruth to complete. It was filmed on-location at Dr. Peters' home in Bremen, Germany, as well as in Oxford, England, and a variety of locations in the USA. The film contains the only English-language interviews ever conducted with Arno Peters, who died in 2002, fifteen months after these interviews were filmed. The Peters World Map was a radical map, and as this film shows, Arno Peters was truly a remarkable man. His impact will be felt for generations to come.

BP spying on activists, Israel's crimes, & Iraq drone kill (EP 141)
 
26:49
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on BP's shady side. Jess Worth, campaigner and co-editor of the New Internationalist magazine, says as an activist, they have monitored everything from her Facebook to her Twitter, and warns they have huge influence on government policy and a 'revolving door' with high level ministers. Ken O'Keefe, former US Marine, political analyst and activist, says the two-state solution for Palestine would be like dividing South Africa into a black country and a white country to end apartheid, and only a one-state solution can bring justice. We take a look at who holds sway over Rupert Murdoch. Britain rules out banning depleted uranium weaponry, alleged to have caused deforestation and a 17 fold increase in birth defects. And the MoD has confirmed a 'successful' drone strike in Iraq, as the war against ISIS intensifies.

Is Britain better off in or out of the EU? 2/2
 
05:59
We interviewed two of Britain's most lucid voices on the EU-Brexit debate in an effort to both inform and impassion anyone yet to decide how they'll be voting on June 23rd. With just over a week until polling day, the national debate has been littered with misleading statistics and abstract arguments. These two short interviews offer the progressive case both for and against UK membership of the EU, whilst also aiming to offer a better understanding of how the EU works. Part two, here, features John Hilary, Executive Director at War on Want. Part one features Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion: https://youtu.be/7Gqhim7N-HM See also Caroline Lucas's debate on if Britain should leave the EU in the May issue of New Internationalist magazine, now online: https://newint.org/sections/argument/2016/05/01/should-uk-leave-eu/
