URGENT!!!!! EVICTION OF OCCUPATION AT 34 BROADWAY MARKET
Sheriffs and Police broke into Tony's Café this morning, injuring one of the occupiers and have allowed Dr Wratten's men to start an immediate demolition. Within an hour the building was rendered unliveable.
We lodged an appeal yesterday with the High Court but the bailiffs ignored that and went ahead anyway. Two of the occupiers are at the courts right now trying to get a stay of execution but Wratten's men have done so much damage that it seems unlikely we could re-occupy the café.
The sad thing is that more people than ever were coming to the café and there was still a fantastic energy to the occupation.
We plan a show of local solidarity tonight at 6pm, outside the Café. Please come and show your anger and support!
