Thanks for the props Louis.

After just a day and a half we've had 2500 "unique"
visitors (which I think means 2500 different computers
have checked us out). We've been sent several articles
from youth who are interested in what we're doing, and
have several committments from others for future
material on a consistent basis. Some of the youth are
union organizers and researchers, others grad students
and members of activist/socialist organizations. Not
bad for the first day.

There is also a discussion list connected to the
journal. The purpose of this list is to serve as a
forum for our generation to discuss ideas and
strategies relating to the issues young
revolutionaries face today in the USA. Drawing
inspiration from marxmail, it will be a list that
discourages sectarianism and banal debates, and
functions in an open, critical, and comradely manner.
Through it we hope to gain political education and
clarification, and create new bonds and a new
atmosphere of cooperation and solidarity amongst the
diverse array of anti-capitalist fighters of our

Also, any donations would be appreciated. Right now we
have a Yahoo discussion list, but we'd like something
better. We hope that in the future we can make print
copies of the journal, and also translate what we do
on the web to actual action on the ground. Donations

someone fulltime working on the journal, the
discussion list, and outreach. It looks like we have

We will update Left Hook a few times a week, usually
at the begining and middle/end of the week. We got
some great material coming up, including an interview
with Michael Yates and a review of his new book
"Naming the System"; an article about the growing
demoralization of soldiers in Iraq and what "Support
the Troops, Bring Them Home Now" really means; a
superb analysis of Howards Dean and the Democratic
Party illusion by a young ISO member; a discussion of
the changing political landscape in California due to
the Camejo campaign and the growing movement of
immigrant labor; and much, much more, including short
stories, poetry, and biting political satires. So keep
checking in.
