Britain: Freedom bookshop reopens upstairs while repairs continue at Angel Alley, Whitechapel

Anarchist Movement

Message from Freedom Press: While we do repairs and renovations downstairs after the firebomb attack http://www.freedompress.org.uk/news/2013/02/01/freedom-firebombed/, we’ve opened a substitute bookshop upstairs. It’s been designed by ‘Isla’™ and is known as the rainbow bookshop because all the books are sorted by colour. This isn’t as silly as it might sound.

Message from Freedom Press: While we do repairs and renovations downstairs after the firebomb attack http://www.freedompress.org.uk/news/2013/02/01/freedom-firebombed/, we’ve opened a substitute bookshop upstairs. It’s been designed by ‘Isla’™ and is known as the rainbow bookshop because all the books are sorted by colour. This isn’t as silly as it might sound. Firstly everything will have to be moved downstairs again in a week or two so sorting them out by subject would be a waste of time, and secondly it’s amazing how many people ask for books by colour.

Previous info:

Following Friday’s firebomb attack http://www.freedompress.org.uk/news/2013/02/01/freedom-firebombed/ we’ve had an amazing response from people worldwide.

So much so that we will be able to open the shop on Monday 4th February for business… not quite as usual, but reasonably close.

Our stock is somewhat reduced, but now features some interesting fire-damaged memorabilia.

As so much of our stock was damaged, we would appreciate any book donations you can make.

Please drop off books at the bookshop during our normal opening hours http://www.freedompress.org.uk/news/bookshop/ Monday to Saturday 12 noon to 6pm, Sunday 12 noon to 4pm.

There’s a report on the clean-up here http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/02/286977/britains-oldest-anarchist-bookshop-firebombed/ and here.http://leftunity.org/freedom-bookshop-the-cleanup/
