Issue No. 2339

A firebomb attack on an anarchist bookshop in Whitechapel, east London, last week damaged thousands of books.

Freedom Press, which stocks anarchist books, pamphlets and newspapers has now reopened.

The publisher was founded in 1886 by a group including Charlotte Wilson and Peter Kropotkin. The bookshop opened in 1969.
