Subject: [act-locally] New squat in Newcastle - Eclectic City II
URL: http://www.tapp.cjb.net


Tyneside Squatters are at it again! This time in a brilliant social club in Newcastle city centre which is due to be turned into a lap-dancing bar. Women have opened up the squat today, at the same time as a hearing a magistrates in Newcastle regarding a licence for the proposed sexist bar. The results of the hearing aren't known yet, but the club will inevitably be delayed by the squatting.

Eclectic City II is in the former Manors Social Club, Carliol Square, Newcastle NE1 6UQ. It's behind the job centre in central Newcastle, and near the police station.

So, WE have a wonderful social centre for the immediate future. So please come along to express your support for the squat and protest at the plans for another way of comodifying women's bodies. It's a really great building, so there is various events planned, but come along anyway during the day - something will be going on.
