2,000,000th article read; 1,500,000th visitor: more milestones for Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal

October 5, 2011 -- Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal -- In the late afternoon of October 5, 2011, Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal passed another historic milestone -- its 2,000,000th article read (since statistics began being kept on April 4, 2008). The reader from South Africa entered site at the popular "Dissecting those 'overpopulation' numbers", an excerpt from the just published Too Many People? Population, Immigration and the Environmental Crisis by Ian Angus and Simon Butler.

That reader was the 1,509,498th visitor to Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal.

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 at the beginning 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 2 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 Canada -- such as Ian Angus, John Riddell and Richard Fidler -- the Socialist Party of Malaysia, the Labour Party Pakistan, the Partido Lakas ng Masa in the Philippines, socialist activists in Indonesia, the Communist Party of India (ML) Liberation, Socialist Worker and Socialst Aotearoa in New Zealand, Patrick Bond from South Africa, and the many other left parties, workers' groups, liberation movements and individual activists who continue to make Links an important asset for the entire world socialist movement.
