All good things must come to an end, except in this case the ending of the print magazine opens up a new digital era for Aliran.

This is our farewell editor’s note:

It has been 37 years since the formation of Aliran and 33 years since Aliran Monthly (initially Aliran Quarterly) was first published.

During this time, we have challenged the dominant discourses of political, socio-cultural and economic orthodoxies and attempted to be a source of alternative analyses. We have encouraged critical thinking and provided space for ‘thinking allowed’.

Alas, this issue is our final edition. It was only after much soul-searching but also tallying of costs that we came to this painful decision. In this issue, we document the history of the AM and the societal pressures and political constraints within which we had to operate.

We take this opportunity to thank all our contributors who faithfully wrote for us without payment. Thanks to them, we managed to produce a monthly magazine of quality and relevance for over three decades. The secret is that we were driven to do so because you, our faithful readers, have told us that you always found the Monthly informative and educational, and you looked forward to every issue. Thank you!

Every beginning has an ending; however, in this case, our ending opens up a new era. The last part of our final edition looks forward to the digital Aliran. If you are not yet familiar with our website aliran.com, our facebook, our tweets and our e-newsletters, do look us up and follow us faithfully.

On this auspicious occasion, we invite all readers to join us in the struggle for justice, freedom and solidarity for a better Malaysia.

Share with us your thoughts on Aliran Monthly’s journey over the years.

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
