JUSTZINE ISSUE 6

It is with great pleasure to present the 6th issue of JustZine magazine and with great sadness to announce that this is the final issue under the Photojournalism Hub ‘s Mayor of London Culture Seeds support. In JustZine Issue 6 we focus on protests. It is an open interpretation on this topic, because protests which have become more and more embedded in our societies, can take many forms, from personal change, activism, to protest for our ideals or personal goals. Acknowledging protests summarises the diversity of the challenges that we face in today’s world. Contributors have shared articles and photo stories responding to the theme and shared coverage of protests, activism, the people behind them and shared their personal protests. In this issue, we also present the wonderful contributors to the project and let you discover a little of their lives through their profiles. The young reporters, photographers, poets and artists behind the courageous, committed and honest journalism have a showcased profile produced by young photojournalist Fatima Sanchez who put forward initially the idea, and passion in producing these. As the chief editor of the JustZine, I am very proud for the commitment, talent and drive demonstrated by the participants of the ‘Youth Zine West’ project run by the Photojournalism Hub, who produced this issue. I would like to renew my thanks to our founder the Mayor of London and the Culture Seeds team. This has been an amazing and enriching experience for all of us, and we sincerely hope to find means to continue sharing local stories. – Cinzia D’Ambrosi, Editor in Chief
