The project lasted a little shy of three months and was taken to court three times by the owners who have planning consent to knock down the building for a six storey block to be built in its place.
It was meant to be a backup venue for the rampART which is still open four months after being served papers for repossession. Despite the huge amount of work put into the place during the first month or so, the building got little use beyond accommodation. On the day of the final court hearing the building was given over to local kids for a party. Notice of the interim possession order was served on the building at 4.40pm on Thursday which gave the occupiers 24 hours to vacate before continued occupation would become a criminal offense.
The days of action for squats and autonomous spaces which takes place the 11th and 12th April will be a good opportunity to move forward and get new social centres off the ground.
