Freedom Bookshop in Arson Attack

Freedom Bookshop, home of the famous Freedom Press which has been the home of such amazing folk as Peter Kropotkin and Colin Ward, has been firebombed.

I don't know who did it. I'm assuming it's fascists of one sort or another. 

Either way: cheques made payable to "Freedom Press".
