Radical? Socialist? Green? Feminist? Red Pepper has been the voice of dissent spicing up politics for 20 years!
Defiant in its search for the truth, Red Pepper is a leading dissenting voice in British politics, independent of all political parties, debunking the myths that exist to protect powerful interests.
It seeks to be a space for debate, a resource for all movements for social justice, consistently internationalist and a home for anyone who wants a world based on equality, meaningful democracy and freedom.
Red Pepper is a non-profit magazine and exists because all those involved believe the left needs publications which are non-sectarian yet unafraid to take a stand, radical yet undogmatic, and thoughtful yet orientated on real-world activism.
This issue puts the UK election result into global context with a look at the world leaders adopting 'strong man' tactics, and an exploration of the authoritarian psychology. It also features insights from incoming and outgoing Labour MPs, and a close look at the threatening promises of our new government - including how grassroots groups are gearing up to resist them. Editors Michael Calderbank and Ashish Ghadiali debate if nationalism can have a place in progressive politics, while a bumper Culture section focuses on the power of video games to transform society. We also cast our view on the latest book releases and preview arts events to look out for over coming months.
