Freedom anarchist fortnightly

Freedom (ISSN 0016 0504) is a London-based anarchist newspaper published fortnightly by Freedom Press. It is currently priced at 50 pence, although it began in 1886 -- the first issue was dated October of that year -- as a monthly at a price of one old penny[?]. Originally, the subtitle was "A Journal of Anarchist Socialism", but over the years this has changed to simply "anarchist fortnightly".

The newspaper's mission statement[?] is stated in every issue, on page 2, and summarises the writers' view of anarchism:

Anarchists work towards a society of mutual aid and voluntary co-operation. We reject all government and economic repression. This newspaper, published continuously since 1936, exists to explain anarchism more widely and show that only in an anarchist society can human freedom thrive.

Cover of Freedom, 16th November 2002
It was started by volunteers including Peter Kropotkin and Charlotte Wilson[?] and continues to this day as an unpaid project.

The paper features news from peace and labour movements and events, as well as listing planned events and protests[?] on the back page. Staying true to Kropotkin's principle of mutual aid, the paper regularly features reviews of other anarchist and libertarian publications, such as Total Liberty[?] and Direct Action[?] as well as other local and international newsletters and journals.

It regularly features Donald Rooum[?]'s Wildcat[?] cartoon strip as well as Rooum's articles, most recently on genetically modified foods.
