To uncover the stories happening on the ground and outside London, we need to train and pay writers reporting from their own communities

by Red Pepper in London, England, United Kingdom

This is the fight of our lives

Help us cover what's really happening by donating today

At an election that pits socialism against barbarism, the stakes could not be higher. But beyond Westminster and legacy media’s obsession with electioneering and polling averages, there is a lot more going on beyond the ballot box.

That’s why Red Pepper will be digging deeper to uncover the stories, campaigns and activism happening at the grassroots – beyond London and across the UK.
To help us do that, we need to train and pay writers who can report what’s going on in their own communities.

Red Pepper is run on voluntary and freelance labour, with just one part-time staff member. Despite this, we have committed to ensuring all writers are paid for their labour.

Therefore, we need your support.

Donate to our General Election fund now so we can fund quality journalism from the frontline.

Design a General Election Poster!

During the 2017 election, we had an overwhelming number of amazing illustrations and poster designs from our subscribers and supporters. With the help of donations, we were able to print and distribute these posters to people across the country. We want to do this again, so please send us your artwork! The best designs will be printed, shared across social media and will be free to download from our website.

Any amount you can donate to this project will ensure we can fund creative work and vital independent journalism to cut through the noise and take the fight to this destructive tory government
