This issue, Pambazuka News 413, will be the last issue to appear in 2008. We will return on 8 January 2009. We are taking a break to recuperate and recharge our batteries. We are, we know, the lucky ones: there are millions who have no option to continue their fight against oppression and exploitation, for whom there will be no respite over the holiday break. As you celebrate the coming of the new year, spare your thoughts for them. And make a new year's resolution to help Pambazuka News give voice to their aspirations and their struggles by making a regular donation. You can do so easily here.
