Keeping Occupied - six months on the squatted Ocean Estate

09-11-2009 22:21

I already knew it was political to a point, and I had started writing up action reports and articles on the place I’ve lived for the half a year several times, but it always fell apart after a few lines because it felt too personal to express properly. Now that all of the events are in the past, I’ll try and record it in an intentionally personal manner – it is better to have any record at all than none.

World leaders and activists are preparing to descend on Copenhagen to discuss climate change, but have we fully understood its structural causes?
