In the early hours of Friday (1st) the UK’s oldest anarchist bookshop got firebombed.
No one was hurt and the fire was eventually subdued, however this was not the first time Freedom Bookshop had such a blast. Throughout the years the agitated bookworm’s haven has been a bit of a target for such hate-mongers and in the early 1990s similar attacks were carried out by the then neo-nazi group Combat 18.
Freedom Bookshop entered the world and specifically London in 1866. It was founded by the “I’m a celebrity” within anarchist circles Peter Kropotkin and Charlotte Wilson.
The bookshop can be found down a narrow alley way and apparently there is a CCTV camera down said alley way hence CCTV footage (now you want it, eh?) but the boys in blue are not co-operating once again and refuse to hand the evidence over for further examination.
Alas much of their valued treasure was damaged as were the electrics, first by fire then by water. As you often finds with these bloody anarchists, they don’t get insurance and the bookshop is now stuck in a bit of a rut. Any gold nuggets in their direction would be most welcome.
The shop address is Angel Alley 84b Whitechapel High Street London E1 7QX. If gold cannot materialise anarchist books would also help to replenish their faded stock.
Support and solidarity are needed to get this literary deviant retreat back on its feet.
* As it ain’t 1886 anymore you can now follow Freedom bookshop on facebook and twitter.
