Note from the Editor:

Welcome to the third issue of Empower You. As Gaza again is blocked and more people are killed in the region we have two stories sharing what it is like to live in Palestine for ordinary people. The UK has a new Prime Minister or is it two? Read about the election from three different angles. Our top reporter, Rebecca Brynolf, shares with you her ideas about comedy and what it is not possible to make jokes about. Do you think she has gone too far?

Have we manage to offend you with this one? I kind of hope that you at least feel a little uncomfortable reading this - if you are easily offended, give it a miss!! We also take a look at Ritual Theatre and one of it’s leading proponents; Amani Naphtali. As well as this you can read our regular features and make use of our free lesson plans and resources. If you would like to make a contribution, write us a letter or just let us know what you think of the magazine. Please write to us at: Thanks again for reading and I hope you enjoy this issue of Mpower You magazine.
