The Freedom Shop is a not-for-profit anarchist bookshop and info-centre. Our aim is to spread radical information and support DIY anarchist culture.
The shop is run by a collective of volunteers who are dedicated to non-hierarchical consensus-based decision-making.
We are fighting for a world free of oppression and coercion. We believe in acting in a manner consistent with our ideals. Therefore, the collective and the shop must be free of domination and discrimination, including (but not limited to) racism, sexism, homophobia, physical violence and harassment of any kind.
We agree with the hallmarks of People's Global Action:
  1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism: all trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive globalisation.
  2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination, including (but not limited to) patriarchy, racism and religious fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human beings.
  3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in which transnational capital is the only real policy-maker.
  4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximise respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the construction of local alternatives to global capitalism.
  5. An organised philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
