"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.


@Antanicus Fascists attacking immigrants day in, day out should have been a more powerful indicator. They don't care about books anymore. Every important book written in history is available for free to anyone able in the western world. Nobody reads them.

Fascists are ahead of the curve taking new territories and the left worries about irrelevant things all the time, acting like the law and enlightenment still matter to fascists.

Fascists are at war, this is not a drill.
