Arkangel (magazine)

Arkangel (magazine)

"Arkangel" is a British-based bi-annual animal liberation magazine, first published in the winter of 1989. The magazine, which is sold internationally, covers global aspects of underground and overground animal rights campaigning, and promotes a vegan lifestyle. [Nocella, Anthony. "Understanding the ALF: From Critical Analysis to Critical Pedagogy," in Best, Steven. "Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?". Lantern Books, 2004, p. 195.]

The magazine was the idea of Ronnie Lee, the founder of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). [ "Ronnie Lee Fighting Talk: an interview with Arkangel"] , "Arkangel", issue 25.] While in prison, he regularly received letters of support and details of unreported actions by ALF activists. Lee decided to publish these in the form of a magazine, with the first edition put together by Vivian Smith.Mann, Keith. "From Dusk 'til Dawn: An insider's view of the growth of the Animal Liberation Movement". Puppy Pincher Press, 2007, p. 189.] The magazine continues to be written largely by activists associated with the British ALF. [Garner, Robert. "Animals, Politics and Morality", Manchester University Press, 2004, p. 78.]
