The Gordian Magazine is an open, independent publication that is read by hundreds of people around the world. Its main purpose has always been the creation of a platform for discussion and dissemination of knowledge; and with your support, we hope to take our game up a notch and build on this for many years to come.

So far we have managed to do without any financial support, however, as the organisation has grown our need for fundraising has become more and more crucial.

Your support will enable us to spearhead human rights, animal welfare and environmental protection around the globe. It will help us represent you and your ideas of what a united world should look like and facilitate our impact at international events. It will also extend our reach with more powerful networking and journalism.

The Gordian will remain a free publication

Having asked for your support, it needs to be clarified: The Gordian will always be a free publication. It will remain the magazine that brings the bold voices and ideas of UN-alignders who dream of a united nation that puts humanity before nationality and human decency above the self-interest of super states. 

So please support us only if you are in a position to do so. In exchange for your generous support, we offer small perks as a token of our gratitude. You can learn more about them by clicking the link below.

Every contribution, whether big or small, means we can keep investigating and exploring solutions to critical issues of our time. And it only takes a minute.

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with! The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable! We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.

Off with the head! Getting Rid of Phoney Justice

Welcome to the September issue of The Gordian.

Executing a human being and punishments like solitary confinement are as coldblooded and premeditated as murder and torture can get. They are not in self-defence, because the danger has passed. It is not justice, because a person can always outweigh their deeds, and they can change, given the chance. The theme of this series is still justice and in this issue, we are looking at it from different angles, including those phoney ones imposed on the guilty with little or no respect for their welfare and human right.

This issue offers the usual mix of politics, interviews and culture by UN-aligneders across the world, including Ruby Goldenberg, Carla Pietrobattista, Katharina Wüstnienhaus, Victoria Davila, Partho Chatterjee and Maya Bearyman, Cristina Mihailescu, Omar Alansari-Kreger, Atika Harba and Sonia Roopnarain.

The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi.
