This week, Green Left Weekly publishes our 1000th issue.

Since 2001, Green Left has reported on and been (often an influential) part the major campaigns in Australia (and a lot of minor ones too).

These have included the campaign against the first "Gulf War" in 1991, freedom for East Timor and against French nuclear testing in the Pacific. Green Left campaigned against Pauline Hanson's racism and for refugee rights. We supported the Your Rights At Work campaign and the protests against Howard's invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. When Labor has been in government we didn't give up the fight for justice. We've supported environmental causes such as the campaign to protect old-growth forests, to stop Jabiluka uranium mine, and heaps more. When women's reproductive rights were under attack, we fought back just as we supported the campaigns for equal pay and against attacks on the sole parents' pension. We helped spark the movement for equal marriage rights and for 23 years we've supported genuine action to reduce carbon emissions. The list goes on.

Reaching 1000 issues is a major achievement for any publication - let alone a progressive newspaper run on a shoestring budget and distributed by volunteers.

You can help celebrate this historic event, and give us invaluable support at the same time, by coming to the Green Left Weekly dinner this Saturday night.
