|Headquarters:||Broadway, NSW 2007|
Green Left Weekly is a left-wing Australian weekly newspaper. Initiated by the Democratic Socialist Party in 1990, currently it is formally independent of any political party, although its editorial line supports the Australian Socialist Alliance, and it is closely linked to the Democratic Socialist Perspective. It however does accept articles from individuals and groups including trade unionists, human rights campaigners, anti-war groups, community groups, other parties and reporters from both in Australia and abroad.
Subjects of particular importance to Green Left Weekly include environmental destruction, Aboriginal land rights, women's rights, gay rights, rights of asylum seekers, taxation, freeway building, global warming, and foreign policy, such as Australia's intervention in the Asia-Pacific region, the US-led invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq and other forms of US or other political intervention (such as in Latin America). It supports Australia having an independent foreign policy. The newspaper strongly supports the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela led by Hugo Chávez, and Evo Morales of Bolivia. The paper is in solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people. It has recently opened a bureau in Caracas to improve its coverage of events in Venezuela.
