STIR: second edition on line now

The second edition of Stir, a genuinely stimulating magazine of politics and culture, is now on-line. This issue has articles on three closely –related subjects: food justice, ‘radical gardening’,  and ‘Unicorn’, a food distribution initiative. Also, the crisis of the university, ‘Mobilisation vs Pacification in Brazil’s Favelas’  in the run-up to the 2014 World Cup, and a piece on the thorny bush of intellectual property rights which asks “can we change the system that allows corporations to own our intellectual products?”
