Some contradictions at the squatted library



North London’s squatted library has made some headlines. An element of novelty helps no doubt – a new take on opposition to the cuts.

It sounds like there has been a fine and determined campaign to save the library from Barnet Council’s axe, including a sit-in on the day of closure and regular pop-up li…

ABC Prisoner Art Tour Arrives In London


A Prisoner Art Exhibition, collected and co-ordinated by Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) groups and allies, has now arrived at Colorama #2 (or C2), South London, as it begins a year-long tour visiting over a dozen venues across England, Wales and Ireland.

Opposite the old Colorama Cinema, C2 is fast becoming a hub of activity as residents transform the office block and ground level warehouse into a…

Guardian: When the cybermen serve as censors

The first thought to strike anyone stumbling upon the now-infamousInnocence of Muslims video on YouTube without knowing anything about it would probably be that it makes Monty Python's The Life of Brian look like the work of Merchant Ivory. It's daft, amateurish beyond belief and, well, totally weird. So the notion that such a fatuous production might provoke carnage in distant parts of the wo…

Seeing the woods from the trees at Runnymede Eco.

If you happened to glance at a recent BBC Surrey news website report entitled: ”Runnymede squatters: National Trust wins eviction order”,  you could be forgiven for thinking that the Digger’s 2012 Runnymede Eco-village was situated on land owned by the National Trust.  We are taking this opportunity to clarify that Runnymede Eco-Village is not situated on land owned by the National Tru…

Freedom under the law at Runnymede?

Diggers2012 and ‘Persons Unknown’ (meaning anyone in the known universe) have been served with court papers.  Despite the fact that there are no tents, structures or other items on their land, The National Trust is seeking an order for possession and an injunction prohibiting trespassing from a large area of land (over 200 acres) including parts of the ‘Runnymede’ and ‘Ankerwycke’ Estates (wh…

BBC: Heygate Estate residents fight compulsory purchase

Heygate Estate residents fight compulsory purchase order

"Unpopular social housing."

"An arrangement of monolithic land uses."

"Out of place in a city fringe location."

These are just a few of the phrases Southwark Council uses to justify its plans to knock down the Heygate Estate, a sprawling 1970s housing labyrinth in south-east London's Elephant and Castle.

Yet, on the estate, resides a…

ONN: An End To Squatters Rights

It seems that not a day goes by without another callous Tory policy, designed it seems to harm and terrorise anyone who struggles to put food on the table or in this case, a roof over their head.

On the 1st of September a new law comes into force that criminalises squatting in residential properties. Despite there already being adequate laws to protect the homes of people who actually live there,…
