Green Left dinner a major success

Over 100 people packed out the Maritime Union Hall on May 12 for Green Left Weekly's annual May Day celebration.

Activists from a range of campaigns and Green Left subscribers came together to toast the paper and celebrate the successes of the progressive movement.

WA activists to give greetings included: Christy Cain (Maritime Union secretary), Soon Yee Yap (Berishkan Malaysia), Alfia Blond (No Fracking WAy) and Amy Flee (Forest Rescue).

The newly formed Free Speech campaign in Perth was promoted on the night as was the campaign to get Socialist Alliance registered to contest WA elections with our name on the ballot.

Over $3000 was raised for Green Left Weekly on the night.

Credit is due to Jenny, Justine and Janet for the highly praised cuisine on the night.
