we wont go
A message from Jester's Comedy Squat resisting yet another TECOS in Bristol.
Today, Tuesday the 9th of March 2010, bureaucrats, private bailiffs and contractors turned up at 140 Cheltenham Road the site of the old Jester's Comedy Club. The owners, Tescos, received a possession order from the courts last month and the goons had arrived this morning to carry it out.
They were denied entry.
They will always be denied entry no matter how many corporate scumbags, bailiffs, security and police turn up.
This was the first eviction attempt and we are ready for the next one, be it in the next few days or a month.
We therefore calling for help from anyone that can spare it. We need to be even more ready for the next attempt. That means fortifying and barricading the building better. It means cooking and cleaning inside, carrying on with the events that we have been doing, and keeping the spirit alive.
Outside we need to be talking to people around us to explain what we are doing and why.
Thank you to everyone that turned up this morning, it was really appreciated. Next time they will come back with more forces and it would be great to get us all out again. Loads of us on the street outside really helps, makes people inside feel stronger and can make the difference!
We support the attack on the Tescos in Redfield http://bristol.indymedia.org/article/692052. We see that their actions and our occupation are part of a broad struggle with different ways of resisting Tescos and its take over of our city. Solidarity is one of our most important weapons that we have in this fight.
Helping each other out completely undermines what this system is trying to do to our lives and this planet.
Come down! Anything you can do helps, and 'every little hurts' them!
