The New Human Rights Series – There Must be no Monopoly on the Truth (1)

As the Environmental Priorities Series comes to its sixth and last issue, we sincerely thank all of our readers and authors for their generous support and contributions. It is because of you that The Gordian magazine has developed into its current form and has become a platform for members to express their thoughts and ideas.

We are incredibly proud of this achievement and will continue our efforts to improve this resource with the support of our members and contributors.

The last past issues of Environmental Priorities explored key topics relating to environmental issues, in each episode we took one major crisis or shock under the microscope:

  1. Wildfires: issue 1
  2. The Sixth mass extinction: issue 2
  3. Pharmaceutical companies: issue 3
  4. Humanity’s abuse of water resources: issue 4
  5. The rise of sea levels: issue 5 
  6. Waste management: issue 6

Follow our first series, Unrepresented Nations, to learn about the voices of the most marginalised nations and peoples worldwide.

Introducing the new Human Rights series:

Clarifying and upholding human rights is a fundamental duty of states and citizens. The new series on Human Rights intends to bring light to topics that don’t get enough coverage. 

We are very proud of what the UN-aligned’s Human Rights manifesto already covers and we hope that this series will put our articles in context and provide some real-life examples of what our manifesto must strive to achieve.

By recommending The Gordian magazine to your friends, you can help us to spread UN-aligned’s message and its impact on the real world. You can also contribute to The Gordian through a variety of ways including: graphic design, photography and journalism.

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.
