Update1 (Sunday 3rd Feb clean up added): http://www.freedompress.org.uk/news/2013/02/02/clean-up-continues/

Anarchists and supporters are asked to go down to Freedom at 1pm today (Saturday 2nd Feb) following an early morning firebomb attack on Freedom bookshop in Whitechapel High Street in London, on Friday 1st February 2013. Fortunately nobody was hurt, but there’s quite a lot of damage from both the fire and the water used to douse the flames. As well as the meeting at the shop, there is a call for donations and for everyone to spread the word so we can collectively respond to this attack. The damage is being assessed so visit the website for further details. Cleaning up will be 1-3pm and people are asked to take cleaning materials.
