Donate to build socialist media

Right now, with the rise of Jeremy Corbyn, there is a real possibility of a resurgence of the left in Britain. With mainstream media showing clear bias against Corbyn, this new left movement urgently needs its own strong voices.

Red Pepper is an independent media project led by volunteers — an essential voice for social justice and emancipation in the UK and beyond. We’re a welcoming space for political ideas and we cover intersecting struggles for social, environmental and economic justice. Thanks to generous supporters like you, we will soon be able to pay a new section editor with first-hand experience of the struggle for black liberation. This will help us ensure that we can diversify our content and contributors.

We have exciting plans for the future:

  • We will help groups around the country with our media and investigative journalism training.
  • We will support key events, including The World Transformed festival organised by Momentum.
  • We will work on a podcast and digital media to provide new forms of content for supporters to share.
  • We aim to produce a new series of short books visioning a progressive future.

But we can’t do any of this crucial work without your support. We urgently need your support now to continue to push for change both inside and outside the system; to build new links between grassroots campaigns and left-wing party politics.

We have the biggest opportunity of a lifetime for socialist ideas to gain ground.

The political pressure is on and the stakes are high. We need to raise £10k to secure our future and make our plans happen. The good news is that we have match funding from a sympathetic organisation which means anything you give will actually be worth double to us.

Red Pepper is an independent, non-profit magazine that puts left politics and culture at the heart of its stories. We think publications should embrace the values of a movement that is unafraid to take a stand, radical yet not dogmatic, and focus on amplifying the voices of the people and activists that make up our movement.
