It breaks my heart to say it, but when the revolution starts, it might well start in South London.. sad

Well done guys, inspiring stuff!

Well done, is it possible to come down and visit? Are you opening the door to people?

I think the new recycled red ikea sofa in the Autonomous Centre in Edinburgh was donated by binworkers still in dispute. Does that get extra class struggle points? Have you had the 'we should make the place look more acceptable to ordinary working class people' debate yet?

I'm glad the centre wasn't evicted even though it sounds like I am taking the piss.

Yeah, well done everyone! Jim if you get a chance to do an interview or write something up for news that would be great.

Ed, it is only because South London is so crap it forces people to fight back. The proletariat in North London is more content generally, because north of the river is so much better.

Good initiative.
Was the fact that this building was going to open as an art gallery ("for the community", of course) a factor in it being chosen, or was it because it was a former Job Centre, or was it simply a question of it being easy to get into, and a nice space for a social centre?
And isn't there a very good chance the bailiffs will try again as soon as numbers defending it are down?
