Issue #1501      18 May 2011

Best Wishes

I noticed from the internet “Guardian” that there is a celebration at the Sempahore Workers Club on May 16 for the 1500th issue of the Guardian.

As a former President of Unions SA, former Secretary of Actors Equity and MEAA and a former City Councillor in Port Adelaide I would like to pass on my good wishes for the 1500th edition of the paper. It is no mean feat to keep it going for so long and there were many disputes and community actions over the years that the Guardian was instrumental in supporting and reporting. I remember visits from Peter Symon and Anna Pha on more than one occasion ensuring that there was the greatest possible understanding of the situation current at the time.

I have been continuing my work as a trade unionist in London as Assistant General Secretary of Equity UK for the last few years but I have not forgotten the role The Guardian played in so many struggles in South Australia. In a personal capacity I wish you a very successful 1500th edition and every success in growing and developing the paper in the years to come.

In solidarity,

Stephen Spence
