Congratulations on reaching the important milestone of 700 issues. It is a most significant achievement to have maintained a weekly schedule at a consistently high standard for so long. Green Left has a dedicated readership in New Zealand. Personally I rely on Green Left archives as an invaluable resource for analysis and information on issues related to West Papua, Timor-Leste and Indonesia. I appreciate that many reports are based on firsthand evidence from activists on the ground or from people like Max Lane whose depth of experience and expertise is amazing

“The (socialist) Alliance Party in New Zealand sends its warmest greetings and congratulations to Green Left Weekly on the occasion of its 700th issue. GLW is an important source of information for us on matters Australian and International — especially on issues in the various Polynesian and Melanesian countries and the unfolding socialist revolutions in Latin America.

“So many of our comrades log on to GLW regularly for their “fix” of the real news. Our sincere thanks to the comrades who write for it and who are involved in all the other tasks essential for its production.”
