Green Left Weekly is celebrating its 700th issue!
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/2007/700/36349>

Seven hundred issues ago the first copy of Green Left Weekly hit the
streets in the midst of the first US-led invasion of Iraq. ``Just say
no'' to the war, was the cry on our multi-coloured cover, and the issue
was snapped up eagerly at the anti-war protests.

Iraq: Troops out now!
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/2007/700/36360>

three quarters of Iraqis want the US and other foreign troops out, with
61% supporting armed attacks on US troops. The war is also opposed by a
majority in the West, including those countries that are involved in the
US-led occupation.

VENEZUELA ``day a new epoch begins'', Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez
declared in his victory speech on December 3, having won the
presidential election with the highest vote in Venezuelan history on a
platform of deepening the struggle to build socialism. ``That new era is
