A campaign group says it will camp in Victoria Gardens, Brighton, in protest at plans to make squatting illegal – and the city council will let them.Well, of course they will. Look where it is.
Changes to the law, which come into effect on September 1, will see squatting in residential properties a criminal offence.
In a rallying cry to supporters the group said: “They take our houses, so we’ll take their city.
“We will resist the squatting ban by any means necessary.”‘Our’ houses..?
The Squatter’s Network of Brighton is calling for a Mass Squatting Action on October 13 to resist the new anti-squatting laws.
“This act is draconian, unworkable, an attack on our way of living…”A strange way of living, that requires stealing the fruits of others’ labour.
Be careful what you set in motion, won’t you?
Hove MP Mike Weatherly, who had been campaigning for the new law, said: “I fully accept people have the right to protest, but squatting in our public parks is not something I approved of. "If they are there in October then all they are doing is crying out for increased powers.
“The new law will only affect squatting in residential properties, but if they start abusing other areas of land and commercial properties then all they are going to do is hasten the introduction of laws to these areas as well.”Playing right into the State's hands, and too stupid to see it!
