After 46 years of history told on paper – first as a fortnightly newspaper and then as a monthly magazine – Nuovo Paese will be published online as from next year and will be accessible by visiting the site http://filefaustralia.org
The Filef Australia website already offers the complete archive of 46 years of publications on paper. Unfortunately, the most important monthly costs for printing and shipping Nuovo Paese/New Country (about $ 2,300 for printing and paper and $ 600 for postage) are no longer sustainable for this modest non-profit organization.
Therefore, we will continue our commitment to spread news, opinions, comments and information, guided by the principles of peace, equality and social justice, while eliminating an economic burden that we are no longer able to sustain.
The positive thing, in addition to saving paper, is that like all the others we have been driven to conduct an ever increasing number of our activities online. The saving of this transformation should add more resources to support the Filef battles on human rights, social rights and, more urgently, the rights of nature.
Unfortunately the web – a reality made possible not only by Gates, Google or Facebook but by the whole of human progress, including Marconi’s contribution – is running a serious risk of becoming above all a commercial channel, often used in operations of control, disinformation and personal constraints rather than a channel of communication, cooperation, creativity and emancipation.
We warmly thank all our supporters for their contribution which has allowed the magazine to contribute to the social and political life of the Italian-Australian community so far and, of course, we invite you to continue to support us by continuing your contribution as well as activationg or renewing the subscription of $ 30 yearly or with a supporter annual subscription of $ 50 to be paid into the magazine’s bank account:

Let’s continue our monthly appointemnt in 2020 with Nuovo Paese online and we take the opportunity to offer our best wishes to all our readers and supporters of happy festive season and a happy new year 2020.
for Nuovo Paese
