For anyone who is genuinely interested in finding a squat, it's worth checking out the 56a Infoshop as there's regular squatting workshops and a noticeboard of empties/people looking for fellow squatters. Good luck!

Hey to all,
i am working on a photo project of foreigners, preferably the ones from czech republic squatting in london.
Please get in touch if possible, this is not a commercial project, but my MA project to school!
and if there is anyone who is seeking a person to squat with i will be more than happy too as my
financial situation is not great due to my studies but don't have any people to squat with as the ones
i know either gave it up or don't have space...(
Hope to hear from you,

Hey all,

Struggling to pay my rent to the big man and work has dried up. Anyone out there need some extra hands in return for some space in a squat? I'd be happy to open one with a gang.

If anyone is after a squat in Grays Essex there’s a suitable property in russel road (the first house on the left) its been empty for years I think the woman who lived there moved abroad and its never been touched since

Visit Advisory Service for Sqatters (ASS) which is located at the top of Freedom Bookshop. They'll get you in touch with squatting types.

Hi, i am really glad to have found this page! A bit about me: i am anna, 24 from germany. last year i have been for the first time in london ( i didnt plan to come there- was on the way to glastonbury with a friend, but we seperated and thus i just decided to go to london alone). i didnt have any place to stay, so just talked to some guys, who offered me a place to stay for one night. next morning they brought me to the internet café. again i met another guy who offered me to stay one week at his place. afterwards i met some other new friends and so on. somehow i managed to be there for 3 months, always staying somewhere else and i have really met some great people. one of my friends also squatted in the 90ies. I have met many homeless people on the street and personally i also had some bad experiences- for example i had a sleeping bag but someone stole it (now i have another feeling. i think the other person must have needed it much more than myself- as it was pretty cold outside, and at least i could stay inside with some friends).
Anyway i am looking for a job in London, as i am planning to come back soon. I absolutulety love this city! I am a bit crazy, but so is this city. And when i have been there i could really feel this spirit of London. It was like my prayers got answered immediately and i just listened much more to my heart than in any other city i have ever been to. No joke... io must have some deep connection with this city ... i cant wait to be back there.
pleaseif anybody knows about a cool sqaut,please please let me know!!
I am grateful for every single reply that i get....

Hi Luke, funny thing happened to me , I just got back from Canada last week after being 10months there , and find myself in the same situation as you , my problem also is that I lived 20years in France before that, I am British and British passport holder. I think we both need help to find out what to do first and where to go to get back into the system (I hate that expression) In the meantime good luck to you , any info I find that could be useful to you I will post here , take care.
