  That’s right fellow humans…  10 years ago in April we started this ad-free, non-partisan, unbiased editorial, online news magazine that people from around the world could contribute to no matter who they were, or what political, religious or whatever they belonged to, or didn’t.   
 
And since the door was wide open for submissions, our Contributors have been socialists, Christians, democrats, communists, Catholics, republicans, liberals, Muslims,  conservatives, atheists, even some Raelians at one point, and others… but you get the idea.
 
Everything you read and see here on the GFP is sent to us.  All of those people gladly volunteered their words and artwork to our joint cause of covering, supporting and promoting Free Speech, Free Press and Human Rights. 
 
Not only did the GFP attract some of the world’s most prolific writers and artists, such as Michael Pohrer, Haresh Daswani, Dr. Stephen Gill and G. Tod Slone to name just a few – unfortunately  we also lost a few over the 10 years like Alan Caruba, Joel Barbee and J.D. Longstreet, all well known contributors on and offline.  And as we lose some, we are joined by others who want to share their thoughts.
 
Over the last 10 years, we’ve uploaded thousands of articles and editorial cartoons and now they’re time-capsules of the past through words and drawings.
 
The Global Free Press is the only online news magazine that does what it does – be a real public-driven free press.
 
After 10 years we’re not shy to say we could use your support with a donation or someone can take that big leap and be a Sponsor of the GFP.  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 
Here’s to another 10 years – Happy Anniversary Everyone!

The GFP is pleased to spread the news of the impending release of Rattan Mann’s first major film, The Buddhist Monk in 2016!

Inspired by true events, The Buddhist Monk tells the story of a simple man forced into stealing religious scrolls from the Dalai Lama’s Potala Palace in Tibet in pre-independence India!

A slice of Indian history about the mounting tension between the Indians and the British and Queen Victoria’s hold on a country they wanted for themselves!

Produced by Rattan Mann Films (http://www.rattan-mann.com/) from Norway and India, this beautifully directed film, shot with an old world feel and accompanied by a grand musical score was filmed on location in Northern India along the border with Tibet.

For more information and to keep up the news here are the links to their English website http://www.thebuddhistmonk.com/, and the Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/TheBuddhistMonkMovie and their Twitter Page is https://twitter.com/BodhBhikshu.  There are plans to have a Hindi website in the future.

The Global Free Press regrets to inform our readers that one our well-known Columnist’s passed away in June of this year.
 
A staunch supporter of the GFP, he was always available for a friendly conversation anytime I dropped him a note.

I guess if there is anything I could say further, it would be his ability to write articles at the speed of light.

Alan Caruba has been with us since 2007 with his first article, http://www.globalfreepress.org/contributors/usa/alan-caruba/277-never-learning-from-the-past and this relationship continued on until 2015. 

We apologize for being behind with this memorial of sorts as we’ve been preoccupied with work related issues and we lost touch with Alan during a busy moment in time.

Our thoughts go to his family and friends, and to all those fanatical readers who loved his work.

Thanks Alan for your input at the GFP.

Unistar Books from India will release Dr. Stephen Gill’s novel ‘The Chhattisgarh’ on the 20th of April, 2015 in hardcover version.

The Chhattisgarh is about the rich mythology of India, the rajas, the macabre rituals of witchcraft, the assassination of Maharaja Pravir, the prophecies concerning Kohinoor, and a legend that connects Kohinoor with Lord Krishna. Above all, The Chhattisgarh is about politics, and Aboriginal peoples, called the Adivasi.

THE CHHATTISGARH

An informative and engaging narrative focuses largely on the exotic nature of the mythologies around the jungles of Chhattisgarh, where the mega players of the Hindu epic Ramayana had ambled, as did Rajneesh Osho, a mystic of today.

The Chhattisgarh is also about love between an Indian married professor, who believes in the five thousand year old theory of detachment that has impacted most Indians, and Reghu, an India-born Canadian writer, who believes that the theory of detachment had sedated citizens to yield to dehumanizing external aggressions, and has resulted in the domestic, political, business and social disconnections.

Reghu questions the theory of detachment, because it also violates the central precept of live and let live. The Chhattisgarh is an evocative story that moves swiftly despite a density of details.

And lo, upon this day (actually yesterday) the Global Free Press joined the Twitter festivities – primarily for those of you who want GFP news, article updates and smart-alec comments etc., via your Twitter account.

And of course for the GFP to jump into the social media fray with hopefully eye-opening, and with any luck, intelligent sentences with fewer than 140 characters; key word here will be ‘intelligent’.
