Alt Bookstores Welcome Visitors After Covid


The squatted community space The Wonky Arrow on Bristol's High Street has now been closed down after an eviction and so closed is the free library and community bookstore, specialisng in progressive and radical literature. However, other alternative bookstores say that they are open and ready to welcome customers as we head out of lockdown. The People's Republic of Stokes Croft has a small bookstore at the back of its Jamaica Street based ceramics studio. You will find environmental and anti-capitalist texts, books on economy and society, especially from small publishers. And at 14 Robertson Road in Easton, home of the long standing Kebele Centre, now known as BASE, is the Infoshop. They say “ We’ve been doing a bit of anticapitalist shopping over the last year so come check out our expanded range of books, pamphlets, music, badges etc. We think there is something for everyone! And there will be cake and good people to meet and catch up with. Please bring a mask to wear while moving around in BASE and keep distancing as much as you can. We will be limiting numbers in the building to be as covid safe as possible as well as ensuring other covid safety measures are understood and followed”.
