Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week:

INDONESIA: HOW MUCH WILL CHANGE? The appointment of a ``national unity''
cabinet by new president Abdurrahman Wahid indicates the compromises being
made behind the scenes. The military and Suharto-era figures retain
significant power, and agreement among the elite will come at the expense
of the Indonesian people.
