Partido Lakas ng Masa Philippines congratulates Links magazine

We congratulate Links International Journal for Socialist Renewal, and note that since going on-line the journal has become more accessible to us here in the Philippines. It's an invaluable resource for socialist analysis, discussion and debate.

We also appreciate the inclusiveness of the magazine, as it carries articles from socialists and the socialist movement from a variety of perspectives. Keep up the excellent work.


October 20, 2010 -- In the early hours of October 20, 2010, Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal passed an historic milestone -- its 1,000,000th visitor (since statistics began being kept on April 4, 2008). The unknown visitor entered site at Renfrey Clarke's essential article, "The new climate-change denialism: Who promotes it, and how to answer it".

Those 1 million visitors have collectively read more than 1.33 million articles since April 2008.

Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal's mission has been to promote the revival of a democratic, ecological, thinking, activist socialism, and to encourage and publicise the activities and views of active socialists around the world who are rebuilding the socialist and radical alternative in deed as well as word.

Links' success is especially gratifying because there were some who claimed -- when we took the decision to go solely online, rather than continue to produce the excellent but largely unread hard-copy version -- that Links was being "closed down" and was part of an abandonment of our fundamental socialist principles. Well, there are now more than a million arguments against that pessimistic forecast.

Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal would like to thank all its readers, contributors, collaborators and well wishers for their assistance in passing this important milestone, in particular the comrades of the Socialist Alliance and Green Left Weekly in Australia, without whom Links could not appear. We'd like give special mention to our comrades in Socialist Voice in Canada, the Socialist Party of Malaysia, the Labour Party Pakistan, the Partido Lakas ng Masa in the Philippines, the People's Democratic Party (Indonesia) and Working People's Association (Indonesia), Patrick Bond from South Africa, and many other left parties, workers' groups, liberation movements and individual activists who have made Links an important asset for the entire world socialist movement.
