ROAR Magazine is an independent publication that describes itself as a “journal of the radical imagination.” Its stated aim is to “provide grassroots perspectives from the front-lines of the global struggle for real democracy.”[1]

Founded as an activist blog in 2010, the project has since expanded into an online magazine and quarterly print journal. In its early years, ROAR was particularly known for its coverage and analysis of the political fallout of the global financial crisis and the social movements that emerged in its wake, with Naomi Klein calling it “a very exciting window into the global uprisings.”[2] The journal now covers a broad set of social, political and economic issues.
