John Pilger is one of the world's pre-eminent investigative journalists and documentary film-makers. His best-selling books of reportage, which include HEROES and HIDDEN VOICES, have in the words of Noam Chomsky 'been a beacon of light in often dark times'. In FREEDOM NEXT TIME he looks at five countries, in each of which a long struggle for freedom has taken place; in each the people, having shed blood and dreams, are still waiting. In Afghanistan, Iraq and South Africa there has been the promise of hope, and even an 'official' freedom, but the reality of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the cycle of violence continues with no resolution in sight. And the island of Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean, is a microcosm of the ruthlessness of great powers. The island was sold by the British to the American military in the 1960s. The indigenous population, descended from slaves, were forcibly removed to the slums of Port Louis in Mauritius. They have continued to fight for the return of their homeland ever since uathree years ago the High Court granted them the right of return, but this has subsequently been blocked. The island remains the US's third biggest military base; a base from which they are able to launch attacks against the Middle East. Once again John Pilger gives a voice to the people living through these momentous times and, in gripping detail, shows us the lives behind the headlines.… (mere)

Quite good if a little preachy.

An important book. Read it and see how our Governments have lied to us and continue to lie to us, day in, day out. See how vested interests in the media conspire to keep the truth from us. The real conspiracies need no secret societies; they are going on all around us. ( )

Rise like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number. 
Shake your chains to earth like dew. 
Which in sleep has fallen on you. 
You are many - they are few.
