OCSET squatter Mary Hunter said today "Everyone except the owner seems opposed to this plan. Most of the neighbours have been to visit and every single one of them said it's a horrible idea. We were representing the neighbourhood today, even the police seemed to realise that."
OCSET social centre was evicted again today. It was the group's second eviction from its third premises in two months. Seven police and three bailiffs evicted about 20 people, forcing entry and carrying everyone down the stairs. As soon as the eviction was finished, people (assumed to be employed by the owner, Janet Alexander) started taking the tiles off the roof and throwing them on the ground, making the place uninhabitable.
OCSET is having a short break and will reappear somewhere in East Oxford before too long. The sturgle continueses.
