Upcoming events to build the Green Left fighting fund

In Sydney, a Green Left Weekly fundraising dinner will take place on May 12.

So far this year we've raised $36,811 for the Green Left Weekly Fighting Fund. This is a good effort, but well short of our running target. To reach our 2012 target of $250,000 we need to have raised about $80,000 by the end of this month.

The good news is that our supporters around the country have made plans to help us catch up. Some of these plans include film nights in Adelaide, a Resistance-organised band gig and a GLW river cruise in Brisbane, a May Day dinner in Geelong, film nights in Hobart, Growing Change film premiere dinners and fundraising BBQs in the Illawarra, a comedy debate and a solidarity fiesta in Melbourne, and Red Cinema films and a May Day dinner in Sydney.

If you can attend or would like to assist with any of these events, please contact us. Contact details are available here.

More details of these events can be found on our online calendar.

You can also organise your own GLW fundraising event, a BBQ in your backyard or nearby park, a video night or a cake stall or garage sale.

You can also personally help us catch up by making a direct donation to the Fighting Fund.
