Brighton: Squatters attack cops with bottles and paintbombs, then set trap which leaves one cop with broken ribs (UK)

Just over a week ago, an Interim Possession Order was served on a squatted church in Brighton. Deciding to resist the IPO, the squatters barricaded the building, and took to the roof in protest and a large group of people gathered outside.
A Banner was hung from the roof stating “The meek shall squat the earth” in reference to some religious nonsense found within the church, and a black flag was flown whilst the squatters maintained a presence on the roof for 3 consecutive days.

On September 3 2012, some people were arrested for being in a derelict building under section 144 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act. They are up for pleading not guilty and fighting this stupid new law.
The three defendants are booked in for a two and a half day trial at Brighton Magistrates Court which starts at 10am Monday April 22 2013.
There will be a protest outside court.
The charges originally were squatting (under s144), obstruction (of the police in their lawful duty) and abstraction (ie stealing electricity). The abstraction charge has already been dropped.

But we don’t want to stop after a couple of actions, because this is much more than just a reaction to repression. This is a call out to all anarchists and anti-authoritarians to fight now across the world. (more…)

EVICTION WAVE HITS AMSTERDAM: SQUATTERS CHOOSE ATTACK INSTEAD OF DEFENSE.
This Tuesday the 22nd of March, the city of Amsterdam witnessed a huge eviction-wave.
It was the first big series of evictions after the new anti-squat law in Holland. The formerly quite tolerant attitude in Holland towards squatting has been replaced by a zero-tolerance approach to anyone taking housing rights into their own hands. (more…)

We suggest to organize your protests between 26 and 28 of November, because Eerste Kamer (First Chamber of Dutch parliament) will vote about squatting prohibition beginning of December. (more…)
