“When Norwegian neo-Nazi terrorist Anders Behring Breivik carried out the Oslo and Utøya attacks on July 22, 2011, resulting in the death of 77 people, he expected his fellow “nationalist brothers and sisters” to immediately follow him. It was a call to arms, after all.”

⚠️ UPDATE ON THE BUDAPEST TRIAL ⚠️

Yesterday Salis was transfered to house arrest and had her third court hearing today in Budapest. The judge revealed the domicile of her house arrest to reporters and at least three neo-Nazies who participated in the hearing. After a vocal protest by Salis's father and defense lawyers, the judge ruled to erase the leaked address from the official minutes. The three neo-Nazies gave their testimonies to the court; none of the three identified Salis as one of their attackers.

“I want to thank all the people who supported me,” Salis said in upon arriving to the court house. The trial will continue on September 6.
Turning Point Magazine is thrilled to announce an open call for our upcoming photo essay feature that illustrates the intricate and often devastating interplay between warfare and the environment.

Your work should showcase how conflicts disrupt ecosystems, degrade farmlan, and alter landscapes, highlighting both the resilience of nature and the communities that depend on it.

For submissions, please send 8-15 photos (with captions) and a text that explores the profound effects of conflicts on the environment and agriculture to: submissions@turningpointmag.org

The selected photo essay will be featured in our upcoming issue.

⚠️ UPDATE ON THE BUDAPEST TRIAL ⚠️

In a staggering show of solidarity, Ilaria Salis, an Italian anti-fascist, was elected to the European Parliament with 173,000 votes. For more than a year, Salis was imprisoned in Hungary and was recently moved to house arrest, accused of beating neo-Nazis as part of a 'criminal left-wing extremist association.' She was among the most popular candidates in both electoral districts where she ran, beating - among others - the Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani in her home district (North-West), and the fascist General Roberto Vannacci in 'the Islands' (Sicily and Sardinia).

Salis's release happened more quickly than expected. The European Parliament sent an official communication to the Budapest court, which promptly approved her release. Now back in Italy, she is preparing to take her seat in the European Parliament. Read the full background story about Salis's imprisonment in Hungary and her run to the European Parliament on Turning Point.

"In 2022, “permacrisis” was one of the six words Collins Dictionary added to their lexicon. It describes “an extended period of instability and insecurity, especially one resulting from a series of catastrophic events.” Over the past two years, this permacrisis has deepened, leading to increased chaos, conflict, and societal violence. Western diplomacy is struggling with crises in Gaza and Ukraine, while global protests demanding change are met with brute force.

Analyzing the world can be overwhelming. We are constantly bombarded with new developments and as a result we struggle to make sense of what is happening around us. At Turning Point we have aimed to publish articles that can help our readers see a wider picture."
