At the beginning of this year, Green Left Weekly launched a special fund appeal to mark its 1000th issue (due to be published on March 12). We set ourselves a target of $100,000 in pledges or donations by that date. The response from our readers and supporters has been fantastic and on February 20, a $1000 pledge by a longstanding subscriber and supporter took us over the line!
We got there with 21 days to spare!

Green Left's 1000th issue fund appeal has received such a great response because this publication has won considerable appreciation and respect since it began in 1991.
The messages of congratulations that flooding in are another expression of this respect. They have come from grassroots activists, journalists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights activists, trade unionists, feminists, LGBTIQ activists, progressive politicians, workers and pensioners.
We will be publishing as many of these messages in the issues leading up to our 1000th. You can read the complete online collection of these messages here.
A mighty thank you all who have made pledges or donations.
