The November Issue Of JOHNSTONE Is Out Now

Caitlin Johnstone
4 min readNov 21, 2023

The 104-page November edition of JOHNSTONE is dedicated solely to the ongoing genocide in Gaza, because quite frankly that’s all we could think about this month. Each day has served up new and fresh horrors for our eyeballs as the worst massacre of this century dovetailed with social media and we all found ourselves with a front seat to rolling atrocities.
