TAKE ACTION ? SAVE YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY CENTRE

For 5 months the Black Cat Community Centre has been providing a free,
inclusive space for community events. It has hosted open mic nights,
poetry sessions, yoga and dance classes, debt advice centres, meetings
and many more events based upon demand and all free of charge ? all have
been keenly taken up by the people of Bath. This project is run by
full-time volunteers using abandoned buildings otherwise going to waste.
The council, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that this kind of
blatant altruism and community solidarity must come to an end before the
people start expecting the council to provide a decent service, and as
such are sending bailiffs in to evict us so that the Riverside Studios
may once again stand empty gathering dust.

THE BLACK CAT NEEDS YOU!

The first eviction attempt is expected this Friday 26th March at 10am.
We WILL be resisting this eviction attempt. This is OUR community and we
should not be afraid to stand as the people against power-hungry
politicians, fatcats, cops and bailiffs. This is a call to the people of
Bath to stand tall with the Black Cat Collective. To receive updates
and the all-important eviction alert please send a blank text to 07529

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GET ARRESTED TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

A large crowd outside the building demanding that the centre be allowed
to remain sends a very strong message to the council. There are also
many vital non-arrestable street roles including:

Grabbing supplies
Arrestee Support
Legal Observer
Media Liaison
Making lots of noise
Bringing all your mates

If you wish to get involved in any way, please come knock on our red
front door! Unit 3A, Riverside Studios, Lower Bristol Road, Bath.
