*For environmentalists, Indigenous rights activists, feminists, 
socialists and all progressive people, Latin America is a source of hope 
and inspiration today. The people of Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador 
and El Salvador, among others, are showing that radical social change is 
possible and a better, more just society can be imagined and built. *

The tide of rebellion and revolution now sweeping Latin America is 
posing a serious challenge to imperialism’s brutal global rule. For 
anyone who wants an end to war, exploitation and oppression, Latin 
America’s struggles to create alternatives are crucially important.

/Green Left Weekly/ is strongly committed to supporting the growing 
“people’s power” in Latin America. We are proud of the fact that /GLW/ 
is the only Australian newspaper to have a permanent bureau in Latin 
America, based in Caracas, Venezuela.

Through our weekly articles on developments in the region, /GLW/ strives 
to counter the corporate media’s many lies about Latin America’s 
revolutions, and to give a voice in English to the people’s movements 
for change.

The continent-wide rebellion is weakening imperialism’s power. As a 
result, it is taking increasingly threatening steps to push back the 
power of the people. Our solidarity, to help the people of Latin America 
defend and extend their tremendous achievements, is vital.

Through providing facts and analysis, and publicising and organising 
Latin America solidarity activities in Australia, /GLW/ has sought to 
promote greater understanding and solidarity between the people of 
Australia and Latin America.

We are therefore delighted to publish the first edition of /Latin 
America Social Forum/, a Spanish-language supplement to be produced 
regularly by the Latin America Social Forum in Sydney.

We hope the supplement will help build stronger links and solidarity 
between the Spanish-speaking communities in Australia and all those 
involved in the urgent struggles for the people and the planet. In the 
words of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez: “Time is short. If we don’t 
change the world now, there may be no 22nd century.”

/GLW/ congratulates the Latin America Social Forum for launching this 
important publication, and looks forward to continuing to help build 
solidarity in Australia, and around the world, with Latin America’s 
movements for freedom, democracy, sustainability and justice.
