Looking for new or alternative information, news & ideas? Can’t find any in the high street bookshops & newsagents? Then come on down to BASE’s infoshop for something different – freethinking independent media publications & mags, plus a range of books covering everything from historical texts & testimonies to modern day polemics & DIY handbooks. We also have loads of badges, music, stickers, t-shirts & patches, and a wall full of FREE INFO on local and national events, campaigns & networks. Pop in – whenever BASE is open: Sunday dinner, bike workshop, or during any other event, meeting or activity.
The infoshop is a not for profit collective based at BASE social centre. Our aim is to contribute to the spreading of radical ideas & action through the distribution of progressive political, anti-capitalist & anarchist literature and associated merchandise. In a time of relentless government double-speak & spin, and systematic mass media truth manipulation, we recognize the need to answer their lies and counter their misinformation. As we buy in bulk, and are unpaid volunteers, we are able to keep publications & merchandise affordable & accessible across a wide range of subjects – from anti-fascism to the Zapatistas, faraway rebels to European anarchists, permaculture & vegan cooking to actions against austerity, the G8/9/20 & climate change.
