The Editors

What is the state of activism in Africa today? How effective is activism in bringing about the transformations that are needed to improve the lives of the African people? What should be done better? Pambazuka News invites articles exploring different perspectives on this theme.

With this issue, Pambazuka News closes another successful year of bold and insightful articles that raise revolutionary consciousness about the peoples’ struggles for freedom and justice in the pan-African world.

Pambazuka News is preparing a Special Issue on the labour movement and the struggles for Africa's liberation today. The Editors invite articles that examine the movement’s mission beyond agitation for worker rights towards the bigger project of concrete self-determination of the African people.
