rampART Social Centre was evicted at 5:30am this morning by 45 police, bailiffs and a priest.

They also had climbers going up to the roof conjuring up memories of the raid during the G20 in April. Police are blocking the entrance to all three roads leading to the social centre with vans and their bodies.
