At about 7:45pm last night a vanload of pigs violently forced entry to the social centre. They searched the place, threatened arrest and generally tried intimidating the occupiers who were eating dinner. After a good half an hour of general wandering around and intimidating the occupiers these police left saying they’d be back with a warrant. Shortly afterwards, several more vans of police turned up and tried intimidating those who had come down to support us in solidarity. These police eventually left and were replaced with more again, a process which continued into the night.

We believe it is likely that the police are currently in the process of getting a warrant to raid the place in the near future. Please stay tuned to our blog and indymedia in case a call out for support needs to be put out in this case.

Thank you to all those who came down in support last night. Solidarity.
