We are now witnessing the rise of a neo-fascist menace. This menace has turned its attention to left books – with attacks on left bookshops and with murders and threats of left writers and publishers. There has been an upsurge of support for these bookshops as well as for the writers and publishers. A sense of outrage has built up that shows confidence amongst our readers and comrades to confront the neo-fascists and stand up for left books.
It is in this context, of the return of left book publishing as well as the attack and defense of left books and left writers, that we propose the establishment of RED BOOKS DAY. We hope you'll help us make this into an annual event.
We will come back to this page with more details of the bookshops which have agreed to host a reading. You can find the bookshop closest where you are and join us in solidarity. If the nearest bookshop Is far away, why don't you host a reading?
