As well as the proactive struggle to keep the existing social centre running, there is a parallel effort to get new autonomous spaces opened up around London and lay the ground work for an ongoing London wide social centres collective.
The first assembly of this embryonic London collective takes place on Sunday 6th Jan at 2pm at the rampART (followed by a meeting of the North East London Squatters from 6pm at a different location).
It seems there has been a cracking start to 2008 with several new spaces emerging in different parts of London. You might like to join the London Social Centres mailing lists and/or the LondonSCN SMS alert system to stay informed of the latest developments.
Get involved, these spaces don't run themselves.
