On Monday 17th May there was an attempt by Bailiffs to evict the
Occupied Social Centre, now located at 156 - 158 Fortess Road.
Around 120 people showed up in support of the space.
A 4 ft high barricade made up of a dozen beer kegs was placed in
front of the steps and a soundsystem played from 12noon. The
outside of the building was decorated with banners, made at the
weekly art workshops, reading "Stop the Bailiffs" and "This
community supports our social centre [signed] children for a
bailiff free world" which were painted by local kids who have used
the place for the past 10 weeks.

When the bailiffs turned up they were in small numbers with only
a handfull of police who told us that we weren't gonna be evicted
today due to the fact that the bailiffs only informed them a hour
earliar. The police also informed us that the bailiffs will not return
for another few weeks.

And so, we continue until we here more information. We feel that
the occupied social centre will continue, even though we may
loose the building at some point.

Thanks for everyone who turned out!
