Adelaide's annual Green Left Weekly dinner fundraiser on November 10 brought together supporters from unions, social justice groups and the activist community, raising more than $1000 for the paper.

This year, Sue Bull from the Geelong branch of Socialist Alliance delivered an impassioned keynote speech on the rising electoral support for socialists nationwide.

Assistant Secretary of Australian Services Union (SA/NT) Joseph Scales also addressed the event, praising GLW for its support of workers' struggles.

Statements of support were also made from the National Union of Workers (NUW), Geelong Trades Hall, Communist Party of Australia (CPA) and Left Unity.

Resistance national co-convener Gemma Weedall helped organise the event. She told GLW that the night was a success: “A fun night was had by all, with a dance performance and workshop [courtesy of Latino Groove] topping it off and getting the crowd up on their feet."

Attendees included members of Socialist Alliance, Resistance, Australian Friends of Palestine Association, the NUW, the CPA, Left Unity, Justice For Palestine, the ASU, and other supporters of GLW from all over South Australia.
