Squatters Action for Secure Homes (SQUASH) is current putting together a research report “A 30-month Review of s144 LASPO” which we will be using to make the case that 1) the new law should be repealed, 2) no further criminalisation (ie commercial), 3) end to illegal evictions.: info@squashcampaign.org www.squashcampaign.org

Dear All London Squatters

Squatters Action for Secure Homes (SQUASH) is current putting together a research report “A 30-month Review of s144 LASPO” which we will be using to make the case that 1) the new law should be repealed, 2) no further criminalisation (ie commercial), 3) end to illegal evictions.
We have made Freedom of Information requests to the police nationally asking for statistics (see attached for data to date), but we would like more data/ case studies to back the case that, since s144 LASPO was introduced: 
1)      squatters have to live in more insecure and less appropriate properties
2)      s144 LASPO is used on whim (not evidence) by the police
3)      has encouraged owners, police, security to act more aggressively and violently

Therefore was wondering if the London squat community could offer any data or case studies to back this up, for the period 1st Sept 2011 – February 2015 (all info will be anonymous) eg:

NELSN phone: how many call-outs against evictions for the period (ideally by month)? Additional circumstances?

Case studies with regard circumstances, contact with the police, security, bailiffs, owners and squatted properties

 Illegal evictions – what happened, who was responsible, what techniques did they use

Please email anything or comments to: info@squashcampaign.org or me. 
Many thanks

The Next Syriza? As Greece Rejects Austerity, Meet the Activist Who Could Become Spain’s New PM | Democracy Now!

The Next Syriza? As Greece Rejects Austerity, Meet the Activist Who Could Become Spain’s New PM | Democracy Now!
Talks between Greece and eurozone finance ministers over Athens’ debt broke down Monday when the newly elected leftist Syriza government rejected a deal to extend the terms of the current bailout. The Greek Syriza party was elected last month on a promise to roll back the crippling austerity measures in Greece’s international bailout. While Syriza has taken power in Greece, the grassroots party Podemos is also quickly gaining popularity in Spain, Europe’s fifth largest economy. On January 31, as many as 150,000 people rallied in Madrid to show support for the Podemos party, which translates into "We can." Podemos only became an official party last March, but a recent poll by El País found 28 percent of the population supports the party, enough to possibly win Spain’s next general election. Last May, Podemos surprised many when it received 1.2 million votes and five seats in the European Parliament elections. The party grew out of the "indignados" movement that began occupying squares in Spain four years ago. The indignados rallied against austerity cuts, rising unemployment and Spain’s political establishment. We are joined by Podemos Secretary General Pablo Iglesias, a 36-year-old political science professor and longtime activist who was elected to the European Parliament last year. If Podemos wins Spain’s national elections later this year, he could become Spain’s next prime minister.

Leading Egyptian Activist Sentenced to 5 Years for Challenging Draconian Anti-Protest Law

    
One of the leading activists in Egypt’s 2011 revolution has been sentenced to five years in prison. Alaa Abd El-Fattah received the term in a retrial following an original sentence of 15 years. He was accused of inciting a 2013 protest that broke a law barring public gatherings without government approval. El-Fattah has been imprisoned multiple times since playing a key role in the protests that toppled Hosni Mubarak four years ago, missing the birth of his child and, more recently, the death of his father. As the verdict was read today, El-Fattah’s family and friends wept in the courtroom and shouted, "Down with military rule."

For 30 years, Adelaide Adams looked out of the window of her former council flat and watched the ducks on the water.
The estate she lives on might look unloved, but the grassy park at the back, stretching down to a reservoir always made it a lovely place to live.
“My three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren all grew up playing out there with all the other kids,” says Adelaide, 85, who moved here in 1983.

Second UK-based Israeli drone factory shut down by occupation - UK Indymedia



Instro Precision, an arms company near Broadstairs (Kent), was occupied at 5am this morning to protest its sales to both Israel and Afghanistan. Four people are on the roof with banners to shut the factory down, with ten more on the ground, one of whom is locked to the fence. 

Instro is owned by Israeli arms company Elbit Systems, who make drones that are used to kill Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Optical and camera systems like those made at the Instro factory are also supplied by Elbit for use in drones flown over Afghanistan, as well as in Israel’s apartheid wall. 

Elbit Hermes drones have been flown over Afghanistan and the new Watchkeeper drone, based on the Hermes, was deployed by the MOD last year. Although the Watchkeeper is ostensibly a surveillance drone, it has been displayed with missiles under its wings at the DSEi arms fair in London. 

During last Summer’s ‘Operation Protective Edge’ attack last Summer, armed drones killed 830 Palestinians in Gaza. 85% of the drones used by the Israeli military are supplied by Elbit. Elbit’s share price rose in July off the back of the extensive use of its technology during Israel’s massacre,and the company recently reported a backlog in orders worth $6.2 billion. Elbit advertises its products as “combat proven”, by which they mean their products are tested on the bodies of Palestinian civilians

Six arrested as police help in evictions from London estate | Society | The Guardian

Six arrested as police help in evictions from London estate | Society | The Guardian

Six arrests were made during a major police operation to support the eviction of protesters from a London housing estate which has become a rallying point for campaigners opposing controversial regeneration schemes.
A standoff following scuffles late on Tuesday at the Aylesbury Estate, which is being cleared for demolition before a £1.5bn regeneration project, after the local council moved to evict a group who took over part of the estate following a March for Homes protest in London earlier this month.
Notting Hill Housing was named last year as the development partner for a 20-year regeneration scheme to build 4,000 homes.
Taking inspiration from recent housing campaigns such as Focus E15 and New Era, the people involved in the the occupation at the Aylesbury had mounted a last-ditch legal bid to challenge their eviction by Southwark council.
Speaking at the scene shortly after the eviction on Tuesday night, activist Charlie Ebert accused the police of heavy handedness and said the estate had become synonymous with a London housing shortage affecting the poor.



“What’s going on here is effectively social cleansing to make London a nice ‘clean’ place for the rich,” he said. “A group of us wanted to stand in the way of that so we took over some of the flats as an act of solidarity.”

Did GCHQ illegally spy on your emails and phone calls? Use this tool to find out

Privacy International offers up a "historic opportunity" to find out if British intelligence agencies spied on you

Getty / Reuters
Are you worried that intelligence agencies may have been illegally spying on you?
Consumer group Privacy International has created a tool to let you easily find out whether GCHQ targeted your communications.
The tool has been developed in the response to a ruling that GCHQ unlawfully spied on British citizens by allowing the US National Security Agency to harvest all of our data and then share it with UK spooks. 
This was taking place for years, up until December 2014.
The ruling means that ANYONE around the world can ask the spy agency if their records were unlawfully shared by the NSA.
Privacy International will collect all of the requests - which involve entering in your name, email address and phone number - from around the world and then submit them to the UK Investigatory Powers Tribunal.
If it turns out you HAVE been illegally spied on, you can then request that your records - including emails, phone records and internet communications - are deleted.
The recent ruling was actually the first time in the Investigatory Powers Tribunal’s history that it had ruled AGAINST the actions of security services.
"Intelligence agencies' culture of secrecy has allowed them, for too long, to avoid public accountability. 
"Whether it's secret hearings in closed court rooms or committees equipped only with rubber stamps, intelligence agencies like GCHQ have never been forced to answer to the public for their actions," says Privacy International.
"The public have a right to know if they were illegally spied on, and GCHQ must come clean on whose records they hold that they should never have had in the first place,” adds Eric King, Deputy Director of Privacy International, adding that this was a "historic opportunity" to hold GCHQ accountable.

​‘100 riot police’ clash with housing justice activists in South London, 6 arrested — RT UK


Six people were arrested on Tuesday night in a London council estate, following a standoff between riot police and activists protesting against the ‘social cleansing’ of London's poor.
Southwark's Aylesbury Estate has become a focal point for campaigners who strongly oppose controversial regeneration schemes in the capital. It has been earmarked for demolition as part of a £1.5 billion regeneration scheme spearheaded by Southwark Council.
Activists occupied flats in the estate on February 1 in protest against the development project. But Southwark council sought to evict the campaigners on Tuesday evening, following an official court order. Met officers arrived on the scene to assist the local authority.
Among the activists present when police arrived were members of housing campaign group Aylesbury Occupation. Following a tense standoff with police, the campaigners eventually dispersed.

Occupy Democracy February – “Equality and Representation”

Last weekend, ‘Occupy Democracy’ returned to Parliament Square for a series of events around ‘Equality and Representation’. Despite an ongoing legal challenge against the GLAover previous repression, on Saturday they faced further arrests by police who appeared to be having difficulty providing a legal basis for their actions.
The afternoon began peacefully on the pavement by Churchill’s statue with a presentation on Islamaphobia, followed by a mock funeral for democracy at the foot of Mandela’s statue. 
01 occupy democracy february
02 occupy democracy february

Then the activists walked on to the grass area and unfurled a huge tarpaulin, on which they continued debate, with an inspirational offering from Kerry-anne Mendoza (aka Scriptonite). 
04 occupy democracy february
05 occupy democracy february
Heritage Wardens and police kept interrupting proceedings and attempting to hand over pieces of paper and information to members of the group, but were mostly ignored. Police numbers were also building up, with TSG officers arriving on the scene, and suddenly a dozen or more officers bundled into the crowd, ignoring the shouts that there were elderly and infirm individuals present, and they made their first arrest of the evening, targeting Donnachadh McCarthy, author and media activist. The authorities clearly see him as some sort of focus, as this is the fourth arrest he has endured.
From then on, the evening descended into a petty legal farce and police actions which successfully disrupted the planned events. Superintendent Kohli, heading the police operation, began the evening in assured form claiming his conscience was clear, but as legal arguments ensued, he was heard arguing with CPS about whether CCTV was needed to support any charges, and later literally refused to speak with Bindman’s lawyers and drove away into the night. See the video.
Each of the several more arrests over the evening followed the same bizarre pantomime. A Heritage Warden, surrounded by a large group of TSG officers, would randomly select a member of the public on the grass and (if they didn’t run away), would ask them to leave the grass, without giving any reason for the request. He then claimed they were breaking a Bye-Law by not following a “reasonable direction”, but constant requests to be told the “reason” for the request were ignored. He then asked for a name and address, and if refused, police piled in to arrest the person targeted.
06 occupy democracy february
At one point, people in chorus (using the ‘mic check’ technique of call and response), described to the wardens and officers that some months ago, a Bindman’s solicitor had explained to the commanding Inspector why this exact same scenario was unlawful, and as a result he had withdrawn nearly 200 officers allowing the occupation to continue peacefully – this caused the police and wardens to withdraw and huddle for a while, but they returned for more arrests soon after.
The argument lies around whether a Warden can just issue a direction to leave (which clearly opens him/her up to the dangers of discrimination or infringement of human rights), or whether the “reasonable direction” has to have one of the reasons defined by the rest of the Bye-Laws. 
The arrestees were released hours later, and all except Donnachadh, who is facing other charges, were told there would be ‘No Further Action’. Thus, the entire police operation seriously disrupted a peaceful and probably entirely lawful assembly by a few dozen people wishing to discuss the state of democracy in front of Parliament. It seems the occupy movement have a point.
They returned the next day and again held many of their workshops (with topics including ‘feeding the homeless’, ‘black activism’, ‘Greece and Syriza’) on the pavement next to Churchill’s statue.

But when they peacefully moved to the grass, they faced further intimidation and harassment from wardens and police threatening further arrests.

Superintendent Kohli certainly had CCTV covered on the Sunday, with a crew of four mysterious figures observing and filming from an overlooking window, and an unmarked green van sporting a powerful surveillance camera just behind the gates of Westminster.

Next Occupy Democracy tactical tips -Phoenix


We need to work on more legal shielding ,rather than ringing bindmans when it goes off, maybe Gavin from bindmans solicitors  who is sent in emergency can be there during the whole thing.

Can we put a call out for other solicitors,as they are stronger legal shield ,than the excellent Legal observers we already have.
Also more work to bring in media shield coverage,national and international film crews to shame the governments,blatant political policing.
And Bomber Boris' GLA free speech clamp down.
WHO is it in the GLA that decides that democratic discussion is trespassing.

The police could not tell us we need to know who the decision maker is,is it Boris or some mid level GLA manager who determines which groups can and can't have discussion and debate in the heart of our so called democracy (corporatocracy)

Possibly some more direct action training,for if when the police come in,linking arms ,sitting down,arm tubes,locking on to each other ???
also would like to observe that we need to sometimes keep moving ,when a heritage warden approaches you the best tactic is to ignore and move away from him fast.
The heading away from wardens and police fast has helped avoid arrest a number of times.

Then obviously returning back to the discussion.
would also like to share a tactic from the school kids in parly sq when the Iraq War 2  started, as soon as the police got 2 sides on a kettle ,some one would shout,change the scenery and the kids would get up and run around in all directions very fast. 
Totally frustrating the police attempts to contain them.Imaginethe police trying to catch many fleet footed school kids in the playground of parliament.

We need to sometimes move around very fast in different directions and then "swarm"
​back together to continue democratic discussion.

Just some ideas folks, keep networking viva the resistance and lets all pump the networking machine for March 7th and make it the largest Occupy Democracy ever.
Lets get those stickers up in all the tube/bus stations across london.
Love n resistance

Parliament square the Battle for the heart of British Democracy,some phoenix advice #olsx @occupynn #bohemians4soho #occupydemocracy


This Saturday at Parliament square saw a number of people arrested for merely trying to have democratic discussion.

After a few months of fencing off the square, attacking and arresting those at the protest .It seems like last month that the authorities had allowed the democratic debate to happen on the grass in an unfenced square.
Possibly due to A strong JUDICIAL REVIEW against their heavy suppress and arrest/fence off  tactics.

However this weekend the forces of corporatocracy were back to their old anti democratic tricks.
Arresting people, snatch squading them into waiting bully vans.
Being an activist of nearly 25 years now and seeing the last few months tactics, i was not surprised at all.
We have grown used to the Tory Tyrrany's Totalitarian Tactics.

However a friend of mine who came with us from Reclaim Love at piccadilly square, was absolutely appalled,astounded and shocked as the police and heritage wardens pushed their way around the field arresting people,without fair warning or explanation of the laws they were using.

Some advice from the old school protest team 
THE KEY QUESTION TO ASK IS....what law are u using is it a bye law or a normal law, and how does that law actually apply to what we are doing NOW,or does it apply at all.

Always find out the name of the senior policeman on the field. always record with cameras and note pad what is said, what law is being used, what time things happened and get this info to legal observers .
and follow it up, look up the laws online as they quote them, and challenge its exact interpretation.

The heritage wardens have the power to ask you to leave if u have broken one of the 30 bye laws,and then demand name and address.but if you have not broken one they cannot ask you to leave.or ask for name and address.



IF U HAVE BROKEN A BYE LAW, they can ask for your name and address,if u refuse to give name and address that gives the power of general arrest to the police.
so if you give them some name and address,thats means they have NO power  to  ARREST.

The name and address you have given will be sent a letter to summon u to court for breaking a bye law, a small fine ,not a criminal record.
Its handy to not carry I.D> on these demos.if u get me.

As long as u have no sleeping equipment or tents they can't use the Police and social responsibility Act PSRA ? law on that one.the one to stop camping and equipment.

The police,in previous months,at OCCUPY DEMOCRACY when challenged directly have changed from laws to bye laws and back again. trying to find a law to frame us in.
Bindmans solicitors say that the police seem rather confused as to which law they are using.



Keep saying to them that there is a Judicial Review under way, by Liberty, they are being recorded on national,international media and livestream, 

What they are being asked to do is, unlawfully and undemocratically suppressing our rights to assemble ,protest and democratically discuss,in a place that was created (parly sq) so that the British public could make their views known to the passing MPs and political establishment.
we have rights under European ECHR rights articles 10 and 11 to assemble and protest.

The police tried to claim trespass on saturday,but who in the GLA decides which of the public is trespassing in this public square.
its claimed GLA owns it ,but in fact they only look after it for the people.
It is an ancient site (TOT HILL,under westminster abbey) where the ancient celts in Druidic times gather to discuss,debate and make the lores (which became Laws later) We say it is COMMON LAND

The police said we should ask written permission to protest,we reminded them that in Russia and China people have to apply in writing to protest,in this country we have rights.



On previous occasions some of Occupy Democracy have checked out the so called Legal route of applying for permission, to find out you need to get £1,500 public ;liability insurance to have a public demonstration.PROTEST for the RICH or large well organised/funded groups only???
They say u need to apply in writing to display any written material or banners.

WHERE HAS THE DEMOCRACY AND FREE SPEECH GONE?



Know your rights,stand firm (sometimes) keep moving around fast sometimes,keep on your toes innit, and swarm back together to carry on the direct democratic debating that is our inalienable birthright as free born people of this country ,that has a long and proud tradition of struggle to uphold our rights and freedoms,
keep networking
Viva the resistance see u march 7th OCCUPY DEMOCRACY http://occupydemocracy.org.uk 

NETWORK it big time we shall prevail,keep up the pressure ,keep coming every month up to and beyond the election and we shall see a very magical thing happen People Power  winning the day in the Heart of British Democracy
Reclaim the Power NOW IS THE MOMENT OF POWER.
NETWORK NETWORK NETWORK everywhere you go,carry leaflets and stickers,be a relentless networker for a better future.
