In memories of Kristallnacht
The owners of Britain’s largest socialist bookshop have said the store was attacked by masked far-right protesters who chanted fascist songs and threatened staff.
Authors and an MP were moved to express solidarity with workers at Bookmarks Bookshop, on Bloomsbury Street in central London, after around a dozen people stormed in on Saturday night.
It followed the conclusion of a “Make Britain Great Again” protest against the censoring of a conspiracy theory website nearby.
The far-right group filmed their actions before swiftly deleting the video from their YouTube channel, however a copy was saved and uploaded again on the channel Far-Right Watch.
It shows protestors screaming abuse, tearing up signs on display in the shop, and brandishing books with titles they disapprove of.
