sicko news from rampART social center

The following news is taken from this weeks newsletter from the rampART social center in East London. [15 Rampart Street, London E1 2LA (near Whitechapel, off Commercial Rd)]. To get regular news join the mailing list via

We are planning on some fairly major renovations to the building before the end of the month with the goal of creating a second large space within the rampart for large meetings. This is happening because the final climate camp gatherings is taking place at the rampART and people expressed concern that two day meetings in the hall with no windows is not particularly appealing. The collective have therefore agreed to take down some of the stud walls on the first floor so that the the corridor, library and hacklab are combined into one large and sunny room.

Currently the library is used for meetings of up to about twenty and if often pretty cramped. The new enlarged room will be able to host meetings of perhaps 60 to 80 people without the gloom and poor ventilation of the hall. The hacklab will be closed in it's current form although internet facilities will remain.

While these are only stud partition walls, it is a pretty big job and help would be very very nice. Tools required are saws, claw hammers and crowbars. Also needed are dustpan and brushes, and lots of bags for plaster board rubble. We'll also need a van to dispose of the waste. We'll be keeping hold of the wood for the climate and no borders camps.

Please let us know if you'd like to help.
