In the early, morning of 3/21/15, the building behind the warehouse occupied by AK PRESS & neighbors caught fire and two people in that building died. Several units in AK’s building burned but everyone got out safely. AK PRESS and their neighbors at 1984 Printing suffered extensive water and smoke damage.
From the brave, tireless, lovely collective-mates at AK PRESS:
A lot of people have been asking what is the best way to help us recover from our warehouse fire. We still aren’t sure the exact amount of stock that is ruined, or how long our business will be disrupted while we work hard to get back on our feet. But we do know that we’ve lost a lot, and even in the best of times, we always need your support.
But we’re not the only ones in trouble. 1984 Printing and several individual tenants are trying to raise funds as well. We’ve created a web page with links to various people you might want to help out, including us.
Please spread the news, and thanks for all the kind words and support so far. We love you guys. xo.
AK PRESS is a small, worker-run collective that publishes & distributes radical books, visual & audio media, & other mind-altering material. They’re anarchists, which is reflected both in the books they provide & in the way they organize their business. AK’s goal isn’t profit, but supplying radical words & images to as many people as possible. The books & other media they distribute are published by independent presses, not corporate giants. AK makes them widely available to help you make positive, revolutionary changes in your world– & as you know, the material AK carries is less & less available from the corporate publishers & their chain stores.
