Viewpoint online decides to call it a day!

Dear Readers! It is with a heavy heart and teary eyes, we at the Viewpoint announce that this will be the last issue to be posted online. Economic constraints have rendered it impossible to continue Viewpoint in an efficient manner. For over five years, we tried that every Friday morning a quality text is posted online. Every week, we at least managed to post an issue in time. Let us thank all the volunteers---contributors, editors, proof-readers, cartoonists--- who made it possible every Friday morning. Above all, let us thank all the readers whose encouragement kept us going for five years. Unfortunately, a dedicated editorial team and an appreciative readership is not enough to run a socialist paper under capitalism. Hoping that phoenix of Viewpoint will rise anew from its online ashes, we won’t say goodbye to its readers!
