Green left sends solidarity to the staff of Bookmarks bookshop which was attacked by masked fascists yesterday. Our politics are not the same as that of Bookmarks but over the years this shop has carried texts and hosted events which are in line with the environmental and political concerns of Green Left. We agree with the reports that characterise this event as an alarming attack on freedom of speech. Many fascist and repressive regimes and movements begin by seeking to suppress ideas that they cannot cope with but they will not succeed. We support Bookmarks in its work of telling truth to power in spite of this attempted intimidation.
