"This was a group of so-called alt-right protesters who decided that a socialist bookshop, which stocks radical literature and working-class history titles and provides stalls for national trade union conferences, was a legitimate target for violence."

If this kind of shit doesn't wake up people, then nothing will. Fascists attacking books is the last step before fascists attacking people.



@jeroenpraat @Antanicus

we have had this before in London too *and* fascists attacking real people as well.

As recently as early 1990s, when I was a teenager and living in London, I had to literally watch my back in the areas I lived in. (I am not white skinned btw)

I'm not overly paranoid/frightened about it as I've lived through such times before, but its disappointing to see my country sliding back 25-30 years like that..
