In Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Africa there has been the promise of hope, but the reality of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the cycle of violence continues. And the island of Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean, is a microcosm of the ruthlessness of great powers. The island was sold by the British to the American military in the 1960s. The indigenous population, descended from slaves, were forcibly removed to the slums of Port Louis in Mauritius. They have continued to fight for the return of their homeland ever since; three years ago the High Court granted them the right of return, but this has subsequently been blocked. The island remains the United States' third-biggest military base, a base from which they are able to launch attacks against the Middle East. Freedom Next Time is, in the words of Pilger, "a guide to the unprecedented threat in our midst and those who resist it on all our behalf.
