The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.
The New Internationalist magazine explains and clarifies all the confusions and contradictions we encounter daily in the media's international news coverage.

Thank you for your wonderful magazine. I look forward to receiving it every month and always find a lot to think about when I read it.
A little about Mitra Bali: Mr Milih comes from Abuan village, under the shadow of Batur volcano in Bali, where Mitra Bali is establishing Bali's first 'Fair Trade' village.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
