On December 15, 2021, the mail-order space of the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective was destroyed in a catastrophic fire that reduced three large buildings to burned-out shells in downtown Olympia, Washington. Thousands of our books, posters, and stickers were entirely consumed, not to mention equipment and supplies. We lost everything that was in the space.
This represents a tremendous setback to us. To resume operations, we will need to replace the books, posters, stickers, computers, printers, packing materials, furniture, and many other things, and to secure a new space. We are an all-volunteer operation. We have always run on a shoestring budget, selling all our print material at break-even prices. We’ve been doing this for 25 years, supporting the social movements that we participate in. We don’t receive grants or any other source of outside funding. We are determined to get back on our feet and continue our mission, but we’re going to need help.
