Integral Liberation - New Publication
From Frederick Noronha, 31 mar 1997
INTEGRAL LIBERATION is a new review recently launched from Bangalore. It is "committed to the building of a new society based on our constitutional values of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. It aims at bringing a truly just, self-reliant, sustainable, participatory and socialist society in India." Integral Liberation also says it is "at the service of activists and the social conscious.
It covers the entire field of social justice, devleopment and social change." It will also advocate the viewpoint of the poor, oppressed and marginalised, and will deal with relevant socio-economic, political, cultural, religious and ideological issues, paying speical attention to the voluntary sector, social action groups and people's movements. It stands for human rights, communal harmony, the environment and the liberation of women, dalits, tribals and other oppressed groups.
