Launch of new paper

An addition to the alternative media is due to appear this week with the first issue of a new paper, Broadside Weekly.

Described as "an independent, broadly based left and progressive weekly", Broadside will be formally launched in Sydney on June 5.

Proposals for the project were initiated in the second half of 1990. The new paper has a supporters' association headed by a board consisting of Brian Aarons, Anthony Albanese, Wendy Bacon, Peter Barrack, Meredith Burgman, Wendy Caird, Patricia Caswell, Kerren Clark, Tony Cooke, Drew Hutton, Ron Knowles, Stuart Macintyre, Tom McDonald, Peter Murphy, Carmel Shute, Suganthi Singarayar, John Sutton, Lindsay Tanner, Jo Vallentine and Roger Woock.
