New Internationalist is renowned for its radical, campaigning stance on a range of world issues, from the cynical marketing of babymilk in the Majority World to human rights in Burma.

With the ‘one per cent’ busy squeezing all they can out of the planet, young people are setting about making sure there’s still a kingdom left to inherit. Over the past two years, they have led a wave of dissent, whether in 140-character tweets or through chants of masses on the street. Young people from Egypt to Canada are working to articulate a blueprint for a new future.
In October’s edition of the New Internationalist we hand over our Big Story section exclusively to writers aged up to 25. Guest-edited by activist Jody McIntyre, the issue explores how young people are engaging with politics around the world. It looks at the tub-thumping victories of the Chilean student movement, airs the frustrations of Linah Alsaafin in the West Bank and has Laurie Penny explain why selling out is no longer an option.
