update: as far as we are aware Practical Squatters Evenings are not currently happening on a regular basis. If they do happen they will be announced on the NELSN phone list, which you should be on if in London
Monthly Practical Squatting Nights:
COME LEARN & SHARE ALL ABOUT SQUATTING
Once a month we gather new squatters and old in Decentre to share skills, stories, experience and knowledge and make plans to squat the world.
The ASS collects contacts of people interested in squatting and helps them connect with others.
If you’re interested in joining a crew, finding out more about squatting, helping out others or learning which end of the crowbar goes where, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop-in to Decentre at 7pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. Below are the dates …
We need people to help out on the nights, to promote them, and to get active, ideally people with experience who’d be willing to put a bit of time and energy into sharing their skills with new people and supporting them as they squat a new place.
Also, we need people to drink tea and talk about squatting.
How You Can Help:
Tell people about PSN and the ASS. If people don’t know, they can’t get involved.
Collect empties. Send them in to the ASS so we can pass them on to those who need them. All areas of London and beyond are welcome.
Come to the night and encourage new people.
Join up with others to take direct action to collectively house people.
Let us know if you need people to join your crew or help hold a squat.
For more info, come down and say hello!
Anyone looking to squat should get in touch with ASS, and leave their contact details (so we can text/phone/email them) and some basic info about what they’re looking for, when they want to move, etc.
Once we’ve gathered at least 5 or 6 names, we can also set up a time for everyone to meet each other and look at potential buildings.
We are happy to come out and run practical squatting workshops and squatting legal workshops on request, whether that’s for existing squat crews or other groups of people. Please contact ASS if you’d like to arrange something like this.
