|London (UK): Some news from squatted spaces:|
At the weekend we were tipped off that the Rampart might be getting a surprise eviction this week. Today we have been checking it out but we’re not much more wiser for it. We’ve heard nothing officially, through the county court or the bailiffs, but there are other ways we could still be on the receiving end of a surprise eviction, potentially high court bailiffs. Our much loved Bowl Court space was evicted through the high courts in August this year so ‘once bitten, twice shy’. Potentially the fires in the houses next door have worried the council and prompted them to get onto the owner, but the school that the Social Centre occupies is still in sound condition. As we have not been able to confirm anything to the contrary, we are treating the information as real and so we are calling out to you as our eviction supporters on standby!
** Call out for mobile numbers **
The text messaging service we were using for the London Social Centre alerts, Twitter, has started to charge for their service so we no longer have that as a facility, nor the list of phone numbers subscribed to it as that is retained by Twitter under privacy laws (you’ll be happy to hear). Everyone willing to support us during eviction please email us with your mobile number and we will be messaging you when the time comes for your help. Thank you for your ever solid support on this.
We will keep you informed about any developments but you can be assured that we’re still going ahead with the planned events and regular Social Centre functioning until further notice.
NEW SOCIAL CENTRE IN CAMBERWELL
About a year after the eviction of the former New Camberwell Centre, a new social centre has been opened in Camberwell, not far away from where the previous one stood.
The building where the Camberwell Centre stood has been left empty for this entire year, and only last week the boards that were placed outside were seen with a gap to allow physical access through the door.
Anyway - we have a new social centre! - address is 52 Knatchbull Road, although the entrance is through the gate on Burton rd, and the building is right behind Minet Library.
Meetings are happening weekly already. Electricity needs sorting out (hence call to all autonomous energy generator systems) and garden needs clearing. All welcome to help, get involved ...
The next meeting is on Tuesday 30th September at 7pm
