Banner-thumb

Following on from our previous Private/Public space projects which have focussed on the gentrification of London and the erosion of civil liberties that that entails, the Space Hijackers headed out to the Truman Brewery complex on Brick Lane to enforce the rules that are implicit, and perhaps not so implicit in such places. Stopping people from drinking, smoking, talking, loitering, laughing and…

Edldrop-thumb

The streets of London are always in a constant flux, and so are the people of this town that choose to engage in grass-roots political activism. The past few days have seen a flurry of activity around town that has meant it wasn't just a "normal quiet weekend".



It all started on Friday night with an impromptu street party in Old Street that began at the newly occupied Fury Squat, aka The Foundry, a…

Another Normal Quiet Weekend in London Town

Cor blimey! that was another boring weekend!  Street raves in Shoredtich, and looney Socialist Workers in Whitechapel causing more problems than the EDL ever could.

The Tories are cunts, they're cutting back everything! It makes me think "Come back Tony all is forgiven!" (Thats a joke ok), so its good to see people get hyperactive in the streets in a positive non-violent way, but sort of "W…

Esernyok-thumb

The implications are that the police now has around 100 shorts, 3 tesco uniforms, several dozen umb…

Non Commercial House is still here!

Nchclotches-medium-thumb

Non Commercial House is a squatted autonomous FreeShop space on 165 Commercial Street. The Corporation of London (The city of london council that owns the building, booooh) want us out, so they took us to court and won.
