Since 1945 the paper has been owned by the morning star front pagePeople’s Press Printing Society. It was renamed the Morning Star in 1966. In the first years of the twenty-first century the paper has carried contributions from Uri Avnery, John Pilger, Green activist Derek Wall, ex-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, Labour MPs Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, Green MP Caroline Lucas, Respect MP George Galloway, former MP Alan Simpson, the cartoonist Martin Rowson, and many trade union general secretaries. Features are contributed by writers from a range of socialist, social democratic, green and religious perspectives.
