A chance to get together to share practical skills on squatting
and link up with others looking to squat in Manchester so you can open up your own social centre or
find a crew to open your own place TOMORROW(tuesday 8th) at 6pm at the OKasional cafe
The Secretary of State for Justice Ken Clarke has tabled an amendment to the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill to criminalise squatting in residential buildings. This will be debated in Parliament on Tuesday 1st of November, possibly for up to three days.
Make sure you come down today to discuss plans and action to oppose the governments plans which would aim to put an end to projects like the Okasional cafe as well having huge impacts on homeless and vulnerable people squat as the only way of avoiding rough sleeping.
October the 1st 2011 will mark one year since the Kraakverbod made
squatting illegal in the Netherlands. However, hundreds of people still
squat and will continue to squat. With squatting in the UK coming under threat, join us to hear 3 squatters from Amsterdam talk about squatting before the ban, resistance to the criminalisation and what’s been happening since the Kraakverbod became law.
Followed by bands at 9pm (check the poster) and a chance to discuss how in Manchester we can oppose the criminilisation of squatting.
6pm at the OKasional cafe
Convergence space for the Tory Party Conference squatted!
After some minor technical difficulties, including an owner with a fox-shooting gun, a jeep and some hired meat heads backed up by the pigs, we have found a resting, meeting and resources space for the weekend.
It can be found at the (former) Castlefield Centre, 101 Liverpool Road, Castlefield. It’s opposite the Museum of Science and Industry, check the map…
see you down here, limited space, bring sleeping bags.x
After 16 years SQUASH are back to resist yet another set of draconian laws that seek to criminalise the vulnerable and profit the rich.
When 70% of the land is owned by 1% of the population it’s time to even the score and secure a roof over our own heads.
Saturday from midday there’ll be workshops, banner making, skillshares, discussions and food.
On Sunday join the squatbloc on the demo before we get together with others to occupy Albert Sq.
Location TBC, keep an ear to the ground and check the website nearer the day.
