"This year's Nobel prize winner in Chemistry told the world he could not publish his early work in world-class journals because it changed the paradigm of what was accepted," reports Mary Ann Liebert, President of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. "Our new journal seeks to be the forum in which exceptional, paradigm-shifting research and development will be published in a world-class journal."

The Popular Campaign to Drop Egypt’s Debts

8 November 2011 by Popular Campaign to Drop Egypt’s Debt
The Popular Campaign to Drop Egypt’s Debts has the honour to announce the formation of a joint Egyptian-Tunisian committee for the Dropping of Debts in coordination with the campaign in Tunisia. The Campaign to Drop Tunisia’s Debt aims at auditing and dropping the debts of the dictator Bin Ali and was launched in the aftermath of the Tunisian revolution. This coordination between two popular Arab movements is a practical translation of the achievements of the Arab Spring.



Campaign to repudiate Egyptian debt
The joint committee shall work on the exchange of experience in the reviewing and auditing of debts; coordinating the two campaigns’ activities and organising relations globally. Such cooperation aims to cause the dropping of all odious, illegitimate external debts; which were amassed with foreign governments and international financial institutions by the corrupt regimes of Hosni Mubarak and Zine Al-Abidine Bin Ali.
