Fighting Fascism

Red Pepper #242 WINTER 2023

This issue explores resistance to the noxious poison of fascism, past, present and rising – from Stockton to Spain, Greece to Israel – while David Renton and Sita Balani survey a British far right animated by xenophobic nationalism, climate and Covid denial, and violent queerphobia. 

In our essay, Lars T. Lih considers Lenin’s legacy 100 years after his death. Elsewhere, frontline workers catalogue the ongoing dismantling of the NHS – and the fight for its future. 

Our Culture section celebrate liberation, from Chilean and Argentinean memory archives to the cinema of Palestine and Ken Loach. Plus book reviews, previews, our regular columns and more!
