Peace News | 03.02.2005 11:47 | Anti-militarism
After five years of publishing a quarterly magazine with a distinct international focus, Peace News returns to its roots with a monthly tabloid, focusing on issues vital to the broad British peace and anti-war movements.
February 2005 issue
**The obligatory quote(s)**
Speaking prior to the launch, PN editor Ippy D said:
- "Peace News is returning to its rightful place - at the heart of the British peace movement. And we will be working hard over the coming year to engage with the broad peace and anti-war movements and the wider community.”
- “Peace News will appeal to people already involved in the peace movement and those people who are attracted by nonviolent alternatives and who are keen to hear more.”
- “As a quality independent media outlet, Peace News will play its role in supporting, educating, advocating and agitating to bring about positive change."
Highlights of the February 2005 issue include:
- Frontpage news story highlighting the start of on-site work to develop Britain's nuclear weapons factory, and the response of anti-nuclear activists and campaigners;
- Comment and analysis pieces on the paradoxes of the "Save the Scottish Regiments" campaign, the prognosis for "self-assembly" and the Northern Ireland peace process and a look at disability discrimination and the hypocrisy of the courts system;
- Love your enemy ... everyone can change. Working on the good nonviolence principle that "everyone can change”, a new "love your enemy" column - in which those ripe for redemption get their sins exposed - profiles new boy on the block Home Secretary Charles Clarke
The issue also contains a vibrant mix of topical news, features, reviews, letters and events listings
