Squatters Estate Agents, putting people places
Map aids London Squatter
Checking out the properties available in the squatters estate agency

... with the Squatters Estate Agents ...
The display boards were also on display at other autonomous spaces over the weekend, including the Hackney Social Centre.
Lots of people seemed to really appreciate the idea and it worked on multiple levels. Not only did it provide a practical and up to date list of a few possible places people might go off and squat but it also showed how many properties sit empty for years doing nothing while properties developers wait to cash in. It also started to present and document bits of recent squat history.
It's now planned to continue and maintain the project, adding more properties and arranging specific estate agents open days when people can meet up to go view properties together. The next opportunity will be the Days of Action follow up on Saturday 19th April from 2pm till 4pm at the Bowl Court Squat in Shoreditch.
If you'd like to contribute to the project or have a copy of the display for your put up at your space then contact the.rampart AT gmail DOT com . Feel free to send in photos and details of any empties you know of.
