The NW NJPN E BULLETIN FOR MID SEPTEMBER leads with an editorial from Together for the Common Good to inspire us in the challenging months ahead – do consider signing up for their excellent publications. We have a wide range of articles on climate change plus reflections on the late Queen Elizabeth II from writers Jeanette Winterson and Frank Cottrell Boyce. The growing momentum behind the move for reparations for slavery and colonialism indicate that the end of the Elizabethan era may herald the break-up of the Commonwealth as some countries seek to break free. The recent elections in Sweden signify a lurch towards the right with alarming consequences.  You can watch the Carnall Peace Award Lecture for 2022 on United Nations International Peace Day, September 21st, given by this year’s recipient Professor Paul Rogers along with many other zoom meetings and events in a very packed diary for the autumn.

Best wishes
