Leeds: National Squatters Meeting - 9-10 February 2008

So we are inviting people involved in all squatted autonomous spaces around the UK to meet and discuss the squatting situation and some preparation for the days of action in April. The idea for this meeting is inspired by the recent international meeting in Dijon.

Some of the ideas of what could be discussed at this meeting are…
- Building a stronger network between the squats/Autonomous spaces throughout the UK.
- Initial planning for the days of action.
- The repression and resistance facing Autonomous spaces in the UK.
- How we can make better use of Autonomous spaces in terms of connecting them to issues such as increased surveillance, housing problems, gentrification and the fundamental issue of who owns and controls our land, space and lives.
- The impact of non squatted Autonomous spaces on the squatting movement.
- Breaking out of the “squatting scene”.
- The impact of drugs on the movement.

This is just some ideas of what could come out of this meeting, obviously there is no set agenda as this is decentralized so we want to make a collective decision about what will be discussed at the start of the meeting.
We feel this could be a really positive weekend; we’d like to see loads of you there. We’ve chosen Leeds as a location even though not all of us live there, because although it might not feel like it to you down south but it’s a central location on this island!
Please get in touch if you’re gonna come along, our e-mail is below. It is important for us to know how many people to expect. Please also get in touch if you want to help set up or get involved in any other way… Hope to see you all in February…
