Without the rights to freely communicate, assemble and organize - all now under pressure almost everywhere - a truly participative democracy will never happen. Indeed, we are likely to lose even the meagre democracy we have. It is essential to stop the current clampdown on rights.
Richard Swift - editor of this issue - writes:
"As the number of examples of state and corporate assault on the right to dissent mount it becomes crucial to build effective coalitions to defend our basic rights. This issue of the magazine is a contribution to the effort to do just that."
Importantly, the magazine provides links to organizations that are leading the way in the fight to defend democratic space around the world.
