Matilda Social Centre being evicted right now

repost | 14.06.2006 09:21 | Free Spaces | Social Struggles | Sheffield

The Matilda Social Centre in Sheffield,  http://www.matilda.aktivix.org/ is being evicted today, Wednesday 14th June and a request for people to come down to resist this has been made to the matilda email list.

This is the text of the first email:

Duplicitous suits have turned up in bulk at 8:15am and are now (8:45am) changing the locks, contrary to what was said yesterday. Can anyone who is able and gives a shit please get down here now. To begin with they told us that they were not going to ask us to leave. True to their word, but leaking shit from their smug and condescending faces (Hey - I'm a media luvvie, we can work together, lets do lunch, ciao! etc...) we have now been told that if we do not leave the police will be called to arrest us as trespassers.

We are physically outnumbered and could use some props. Any volunteers...?

And the second:

I believe YF are busy "securing" the building RIGHT NOW

ie 10am 14 June 2006

If anybody wants to pass by and check this out. PLEASE DO!

2pm Update

14.06.2006 13:03

Yorkshire Forward (the owners of the building) changed the way the front door works, the left leaf is fixed and the right leaf now opens outwards and has a new lock.

The door is currently open, YF and the builders and the police have left and the plan is for the 15-20 or so people here to have a meeting at 2pm (now!) to decide what to do next...
