This blog analyses everyday happenings in the world in relation to social justice:
‘… entitlement (e.g. to the law, services and democratic processes), redistribution (e.g. of rights, duties and resources), recognition (e.g. of culture, difference, capacity) and respect (e.g. of strengths, attributes, abilities).’ http://reidfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Childhood1.pdf

We welcome contributions from other people, what ever their writing ability or political persuasion. The blog is open to anyone who wants to write about social justice, in relation to music, arts, family life, education, health, social welfare etc. We welcome contributions from people who have something to say about life; what ever age they are and what ever back ground. The editor will support less experienced writers and contributors who have never written before. Feel free to send suggestions for posts/articles to John at his twitter account @inde_for_inde
We would particularly appreciate articles that seek to counter main stream media distortions of our lives and provide readers with a critical, serious and/or humorous analysis of everyday situations.
