New Projects/Spaces in London!

The squatting scene is getting pretty active at the moment, here are some projects that we are aware of, there might be more!

Social Centre Plus: a very recently occupied space, aimed to be a hub of local opposition to the cuts programme in Deptford.

Squatters take over disused Deptford Jobcentre

Squattastic: the group is aimed at getting squatters together and defend squatting against attacks from medias and government. Next meeting is this sunday 6th March 2-6pm, Colorama 52 Lancaster st SE1 0RY.

TheRebelDog: a new social centre based in Hackney, doing film nights, discussions and dog events! 🙂

Really FreeSchool: you might have heard of them in the newspapers, they’ve been occupying several buildings in a row to create vibrant spaces where people can share skills and knowledge.

AntiCuts space: people involved there want the occupied space to be a convergence centre available to all anti-cuts activists in London. Check out their website for updates or contact them at anticutsspacelondon [at] gmail.com
