The Land Magazine

Post by Lynne » Wed Oct 14, 2009 2:51 pm

The Land magazine is packed with in-depth articles and analysis about sustainable land usage, small-scale farming, the history of the peasantry, international land rights issues, the global commons, low impact housing, and grassroots activism. A special section in each issue networks people and projects seeking to build their own eco-homes in connection with land-based livelihoods and highlights planning issues. The Land offers that elusive and powerful combination of relevant information, insight and practical application.

If you’re not familiar with The Land, please take a moment to look at the link below for an introduction to the magazine, the philosophy behind it, and articles from previous issues.

Issue 7 of The Land centres around the theme Dismantling the Commons – A History of Enclosure in Britain. A sample copy is available on request.

Become a distributor of The Land and share it with the people of your organisation, department, centre or group. It’s a truly simple, positive and risk-free way to promote the spread of intelligent and insightful independent journalism, and not before time.

Bulk orders of £2 each including postage can be made for four or more copies. Just let us know how many copies you’d like. All orders are sale or return, with unsold copies returned by post or credited to the next issue’s order amount. Retail price ranges from £2.50 to £3.50. Institutional subscriptions are also available.

The Land’s Objectives are included below. You may also want to check out the Manifesto and other information on the website.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking to you soon.

The Land is written by and for people who believe that the roots of justice, freedom, social security and democracy lie not so much in access to money, or to the ballot box, as in access to land and its resources.

The Land reflects the preoccupations of two previous publications: The Land Is Ours Newsletter, which for nine years informed people about land campaigns, in the UK and abroad.; and Chapter 7 News, which since 1999 has published news and views about the UK planning system.

The views expressed in The Land do not necessarily represent those of The Land Is Ours, Chapter 7, or the editors. We encourage debate and will consider for publication any material submitted relating to the politics of land, provided it is not racist, sexist or similarly inflammatory. However, editorial policy reflects the basic objective of The Land Is Ours — which is to “campaign peacefully for access to land, its resources and the decision-making processes affecting them, for everyone, irrespective of race, creed, age or gender.”
