London anarchist bookshop firebombed

Freedom, London's oldest anarchist bookshop, was firebombed in the early hours of Friday 1st Febuary. 

Early reports suggest the bookshop on the ground floor and the building's electrics were "seriously damaged", despite the bookshop having been fitted with metal shutters following a bombing by members of Combat 18, a British neo-fascist group, in 1993. Thankfully, nobody was hurt in last night's attack.

Freedom Bookshop is home of Freedom newspaper, Britain's longest running anarchist newspaper, as well as the Freedom Press, the country's largest anarchist publishers. It also offers facilities for a number of radical and anarchist organisations including the Anarchist Federation, the Solidarity Federation, London Coalition Against Poverty, the Advisory Service for Squatters and Corporate Watch.
