Richard Hunt was a green anarchist activist, and editor of various environmentalist magazines, such as Green Anarchist and Alternative Green. He was widely criticised in the anarchist community for his sympathies for nationalism, and wrote an editorial for Green Anarchist expressing patriotic support for British soldiers serving in the 1991 Gulf War in Iraq. Richard Hunt continued to have political disputes with the other editors of Green Anarchist, and shortly afterwards left the editorial collective to form his own magazine, entitled Alternative Green.

Hunt maintained links to the far right National-Anarchist 'movement', although he himself opposed their views on racial separatism. Hunt contributed to The English Alternative, the journal of the National Revolutionary Faction.[1] Richard Hunt died in May 2012 after a series of strokes.
