AK Press Defies Expectations — Again

Radical politics and roaring infernos are well acquainted. Countless insurrectionary screeds invoke flames as harbingers of necessary cataclysm, while such fiery fixations are reflected in the titles of avowed anarchist publications such as The Match and, locally, Fireworks. The literature published and distributed by AK Press chronicles centuries of blazing sedition — both figuratively and for real — and advocates for more. Considering that, AK Press’ more vindictive detractors might’ve relished the news that last month the organization’s Oakland headquarters at 674 23rd Street caught fire.
