Socialist Workers Party changed name to Democratic Socialist Party (DSP). Green Left Weekly was launched, replacing Direct Action in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 1994, John advocated and forged the formation among like-minded parties, particularly in Asia, an international network aimed at socialist renewal, and published discussion journal Links. He and Max Lane were centrally involved in advocating and bringing about a series of Asia-Pacific solidarity conferences, first in 1998, then 2000 (as Marxism 2000), 2002 and 2005. In 2005, John’s first volume on DSP and Resistance history was published.
