Far-right protesters including man in Trump mask attack socialist bookshop while chanting about Muslims | The Independent

A spokesperson for Bookmarks declared the incident a 'fascist attack'

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.

Theresa May has been accused of quietly scrapping a Conservative pledge to ban the ivory trade in the UK.  Former Prime Minister David Cameron vowed to “press for a total ban on ivory sales” in his 2015 manifesto, echoing a previous promise made in 2010 to eradicate the bloodthirsty practice. However 2017’s Tory manifesto, released ahead of 8 June’s general election, makes no mention of the pledge.
