Searchlight opposes racism and fascism in Britain and abroad.

Searchlight was founded in 1964 as an occasional publication and press agency, and became a monthly magazine in 1975. From the outset it has been uniquely successful in gathering and analysing intelligence on the far right. The results of this work are used far beyond the pages of the magazine and our other publications.

Searchlight exposes the fascists and racists’ activities and alerts the antifascist community to our opponents’ intentions, plans and trends. We are the only publication regularly to investigate and analyse the far right’s ideological powerhouse, the New Right. Searchlight is the first port of call for activists, journalists, politicians and academics seeking information on organised racism in Britain.
