Fair Observer Monthly: October 2017







Fair Observer Monthly is a chance for you to sit down, look back, breathe in and think about the month past. A month lasts 28 to 31 days, a suitably appropriate time to take stock of the world. We publish daily on our website and we select some of our best articles every month in our e-magazine. We will give you context and multiple perspectives on issues that matter. We will inform and educate you. Fair Observer Monthly does what we promise: make sense of the world.

In this edition, we shine the light on issues as diverse as the Las Vegas shooting and gun control to Chinese cyberwarfare and dissent in India. We also have articles on Puerto Rico, Chad and the national anthem protests.

This is an e-magazine that can be read on smartphone, tablet and desktop in PDF format.
