10-09-2010 14:30Across the country pubs and clubs, gig venues and community centres are being threatened by new developments and residents noise complaints. However ridiculous the idea of someone moving into a flat in a busy area surrounded by pubs and clubs and then complaining about it is in recent years some very well established music venues and bars have been closed for these very reasons. We must ensure the survival of communities and the survival of our community hot spots.

26-08-2010 11:32As most 'activists' in the squatting community will confirm, the legal wrangling of bailiffs turning up and people being evicted from a site usually run along the same lines...The bailiffs turn up, with some lock smith looking (usually) blokes with tools and then get in any available entrance to get people out...Anarchist Zones are not so easy to get rid of though, as the following article on the current resistance at JB SPRAY SQUAT will show...(apologies for the shoddy google translations, but hey, im trying to show solidarity, not perfect language skills)
