Do you believe in free speech? Do you believe in open debate? Do you believe in in-depth analysis and no-nonsense opinions? If your answer to all these questions is to the affirmative then Ceasefire Magazine needs you.

This is our fifth year and we believe the need for a radical forum of opinions and ideas is more acute and more pressing than ever. The fourth estate has always maintained an uneasy relationship with the powers of the day, but it’s virtually impossible to be a truly independent journal these days when faced with the daunting pressures that afflict the press as a matter of course: financial strains, institutional pressures, censorship (including self-censorship) – all the way to the most overt kind of bullying. But publish we must. “Speak truth to power” we shall. We believe in the power of ideas and we would like you, dear readers, to join us in our quest for a more sustainable, better-run world. Idealism is dismissed as an irrelevant luxury in a world dominated by cynicism and realpolitik. Well idealism might be redundant, but idealists certainly not. From Martin Luther King to Mandela, it’s the very people who think the unthinkable that make the impossible … possible.

So join our team: write, design, report, and create for us. Subscribe to our magazine and help us make it a powerful beacon of free thought. Do it all, and do it now.
We’ll be waiting.
Peace, etc.
