A weekend of free workshops, discussions and skillsharing focusing on issues relating to housing and squatting is being planned for mid-June. The London FreeSchool will be occupying an empty building for the weekend. This is an open project for people to come and get involved in creating a new space from the beginning. It will hopefully include workshops relating to opening/fixing squats, housing rights and gentrification.
Hi folks. Can you believe the weather? In this first June installation, we cover a jolly folk dance day that happened in Forest Fields on perhaps the only rainy weekend of last month. Nevertheless, lots of people, music and dance, with a tastefully anti-authoritarian undercurrent.
