1 story every 3 weeks from March until the end of May.

 

 In this issue, we explore the accidental and the unexpected, how it shapes our existence and what we learn from it. Koreen Reece narrates how a commute was turned upside down. Dino Caruna takes us into the middle of a bar brawl and its chain of consequences. Fatima Raja describes the quiet alienation experienced by those caring for the sick. Manal Massalha narrates how young single mothers living in temporary accommodation fought back against unexpected evictions, and empowered themselves not to be silenced. Finally, Anand Pandian follows a plastic fragment found by accident in the waters off the shore of Greece.
