No Picture

A Letter from TF’s Publisher and Editor

Hello -- again. Toward Freedom is back! Not with our magazine, but with a new and expanded Website that will continue the incisive international reporting that TF began 53 years ago. After several months of in depth discussion, the TF board of directors has begun to develop some new approaches, including a decision to strengthen our link to writers, readers, and activists who are working to create a just society.

As a first step, we have engaged journalist Ben Dangl, who has traveled extensively and written about progressive movements in Latin America. He has already revamped our Website and now becomes its editor. Please check it out at and send in your stories and ideas. In the months ahead, we think you will find articles that surprise and intrigue you - continuing our tradition of bringing voices unheard into the mainstream. Other new initiatives will be announced in the future. 

Looking forward to networking with you in cyberspace,

Robin Lloyd

TF Board co-chair

A note from the new editor:

The launch of our new website takes place at a time of extreme global crisis.The War in Iraq; the creation of a possible free trade block in South America; the centralization of corporate media in the US - the list could go on and on. Yet flashes of hope have sprung up in the midst of these challenges. Labor unions are organizing in Iraq; Bolivians rejected a plan to exploit the country's gas reserves and alternative media in the US is on the rise. Toward Freedom is a part of this progressive movement and we hope you'll join us as we work for a better world. 

Starting with our July 4th inaugural issue, will be publishing articles on a weekly basis on topics ranging from human rights and the environment to youth issues and activism.Our new multimedia site also includes an online bookstore, a blog, radio/audio streaming, a RSS feed, a searchable database and newly organized archives. Video streaming will soon be up and running as well.

I am excited about editing TF's new website and look forward to being a part of this community of readers, writers and activists. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions as we move ahead. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to write for Toward Freedom, please email me:
