Organise magazine back issue 40 now available online

This is now the earliest issue of Organise! available on our website in electronic form: http://www.afed.org.uk/org/issue40/
(there's an index of all back issues before this).

It's a special issue on Work so there's good analysis on the Job Seekers Allowance before it was introduced. Plus it's the official beginning of our now well known art/culture features.
