As the 1000th issue of Green Left Weekly rolled off the printing machines last week, a Green Left TV crew was there to film the historic moment.
GLTV's Jill Hickson, John Reynolds and Paul Benedek filmed the production of the 1000th issue from the planning stage and they incorporated this footage into a new You Tube video just released: Green Left celebrates 1000 issues.
This short video tells a bit of the story of GLW’s origins in 1991 and shows some of the many people who have been involved in producing and distributing the paper. Please watch it and share it.
GLW is more than just another left-wing newspaper. It is a voice for the oppressed and exploited and a campaigner for the progressive movements.
It is also an important platform for the necessary critical engagement between socialists and environmentalists who understand the need for humanity to free itself from the whims of the corporate rich.
The clock is ticking away on climate change and every year of delay by governments chronically prioritising corporate profits ahead of the common good means that it is harder and more costly to address this global crisis.
We launched a special fund appeal with a target of raising $100,000 in pledges or donations by March 12, the publication date of our 1000th issue. We exceeded that target three weeks ahead of schedule and, as of March 12, the total pledged or donated had reached $103,735.
We also received close to 100 messages of congratulations.
