For those already looking forward to gift giving season, Chicago-based leftist publisher Haymarket Books has decided to take a 90% off discount for all their books in the next week.
The Publisher is named after the noted movement in 1886 where Chicago unionists, reformers, socialists,anarchists, and ordinary workers combined to make the city the center of the national movement for an eight-hour day.
“We take inspiration and courage from our namesakes, the Haymarket Martyrs, who gave their lives fighting for a better world,” Haymarket said. “Their 1886 struggle for the eight-hour day – which gave us May Day, the international workers’ holiday – reminds workers around the world that ordinary people can organize and struggle for their own liberation. These struggles continue today across the globe—struggles against oppression, exploitation, poverty, and war.”
Since then, Haymarket has made it their mission to publish books that contribute to struggles for social and economic justice. This includes Angela Y Davis’ Freedom is a Constant Struggle, A People’s History of Chicago by Kevin Coval, Black Girl Magic Edited by Mahogany L. Browne, Idrissa Simmonds, and Jamila Woods, and more.
