JNC squatters fight illegal eviction attempt by cricket club.

Warwickshire County Cricket Ground staff and contractors force entry into Social Justice Centre squat.

At the first court eviction hearing with the legal owners of the properties Warwickshire County Cricket Club, Justice Not Crisis did not defend the action against 3 of the 4 properties held by them. The  Judge ordered forthwith possession on those properties.
The next stage in the eviction process is to apply for a warrant and return with Bailiffs who are then empowered to take possession of the property and remove occupants.
WCCC obviously think they are beyond the law  as the arrived at the properties and smashed down the door to 312 Pershore Road which was occupied at the time. JNC called the Police who informed WCCC staff that they were acting illegally. The staff then left and the building was re-secured by our members.

We have photographed and video recorded the incident and are currently taking legal action against WCCC.
