Show #72 Freedom after the fire

On Friday 1 February, Freedom Bookshop in Whitechapel was firebombed. The Bookshop is home to Freedom Press, founded in 1886 by a group of friends, including Charlotte Wilson and Peter Kropotkin. It remains one of the final remnants of the radical history of London’s East End and has been targeted before.

Donnacha talks to Simon from the Freedom Collective about what’s happening in the Bookshop and asks why Freedom Press is such an important part of anarchist history.

Show #71 52 Commercial Road

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

52 Commercial Road are a post-rock group from London, England who began in 2003.

Initially formed in the bedroom of five close friends at seventeen, where they found they all held uncommon musical interests and influences. They began learning their craft together with an aim no greater than to seek refuge in each other’s company and make the music they longed to hear.

Eventually finding a more suitable home (literally) amongst London’s activist and squatting scene, they refined their creative instincts in the abandoned structures from where they eventually took their name. 52 Commercial Road signified much more than a place to them; a shared experience of youth, hedonism, freedom, the birth of close friendships and an existence outside of mainstream culture. It has come to define and represent a collective memory, of transience, identity and politicisation.
