Cover Story: Out with 2014, Welcome 2015

What just happened? Believe it or not, 2014 is practically over. In this edition we reflect on the year that just was. And then, so you can get ahead of yourself, we deliver the Beginner’s Guide to 2015.

Also in this issue:

Bill Snaddon reports from Swaziland, a country where freedom of speech can never be taken for granted; Andrew Nette delves into the ‘lost’ music scene of prewar Cambodia; Peter Barry reports back on his journey away from alcohol, one year on; and in ‘Roving Eye’, the youth of Myanmar find their inner punk. And don’t miss our extract from the top Your Say’s of 2014, they’re bound to warm your heart.


The star of this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Malcolm from Perth. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Jeff in Melbourne; Peter D in Sydney; Frank in Perth; and Rebekah H in Brisbane. We also have a photo of Sydney vendor Stephen G and his collection of novelty sunglasses.
