WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE!

102 Eaton Sq. Belgravia, London is now a political occupation until further notice. Among the supporters are Lauri Love. The stated aims are:

* to help house and feed and support the homeless and precariously housed.
* to screen films for general educational benefit and to provoke thought and discussion [The Internet’s Own Boy; I, Daniel Blake…]
* to hold workshops on various skills and activities in a DIY self-organised fashion [including poetry/spoken-word/rap with Potent Whisper Georgie PW!!!!]
* to facilitate debates and discussions on the clusterfuck of crises we face this year and how we will push back against the darkening of history. These include:
- the NHS under existential threat
- demonisation and oppression of migrants, refugees and minority groups
- the deterioration and outright failure of the UK’s social safety net and welfare state.
- the crisis of [empty] housing and the lack of government initiative to counter increasing cost of rents and decreasing prospects of home-ownership for youth and working/middle classes.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE!

For tomorrow Saturday — or throughout the occupation — we would love if people could bring or help us find [and fund]:
* comfortable things for people to sit on during workshops/screenings/discussions
* electric heaters or other heating devices that can be safely operated indoors
* a cinema projector
* tea/coffee/food for visitors and residents
* cooking equipment for feeding the homeless and hungry at scale
* HELP US ORGANISE: do you know anyone in homeless outreach or who can help facilitate a public discussion through contact lists? let us know….

A formal press release and poster/flyer for the space and opening events tomorrow will be released this afternoon/evening. If anyone would like to help with writing copy or graphic design, please get in touch.
