New titles flood in

Thanks loads to everyone who’s donated books in the aftermath of the firebomb attack. We’ve had contributions from AK Press, Five Leaves, Zed Books, Verso and countless individuals. Come and check out the new stock. Meantime we are pleased to announce fire damaged memorabilia will be available from Housmans and 56a Infoshop from next week.

Freedom subscriptions and mail orders

Most online orders have now been sent out but there are a few where we haven’t got the titles or t-shirts to hand. The latest issue of Freedom is being posted out this week, and special apologies to international subscribers who won’t have got the last issue as it was incinerated before it could be posted.

Rainbow shop opens

Bookshop re-opens

Following Friday’s firebomb attack 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.
