The Flame, January 2009 - Green Left Weekly's Arabic-language supplement

January 8, 2009 -- With the help of Socialist Alliance members in the growing Sudanese community in Australia, Green Left Weekly -- Australia's leading socialist newspaper -- is publishing a regular Arabic language supplement. The Flame covers news from the Arabic-speaking world as well as news and issues from within Australia. The editor-in-chief is Soubhi Iskander, a comrade who has endured years of imprisonment and torture at the hands of the repressive government in Sudan.

Iskander and his team are working to involve progressive activists from other Arabic-speaking communities in the Flame project. Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal is also proud to bring the Flame to readers outside Australia. Below is the edition of the Flame published on January 8, 2009.
