11th Edition of Squatters Handbook now available

Contrary to what Louise Casey, the 'Tsar' of homelessness, knows, squatting is still legal. Just to prove it the new 11th Edition of the Squatters Handbook is now out. A definitive guide, even having the diagram of a yale lock!! Fully updated to take account of new Civil Procedure Rules. Great value at an incredibly low price of £1+57p postage. From the Advisory Service for Squatters, St. Pauls Road, London N1 2QN. (For squatting advice call 0207 359 8814 Mon-Fri 2-6pm; and they're always on the lookout for new volunteers)

Eclectic City II (Newcastle-upon-Tyne)

Women Squatters in Newcastle have reclaimed a building to delay it being turned into a lap-dancing bar. It's been opened by the women as a Social Centre for the community rather than the proposed sad sordid watering hole that was given approval last Tuesday. Named Eclectic City II after a squat that was set up back in October on the future site of a massive entertainment complex called Electric City, the new squat is located in Carliol Square off Market Street. Eviction is threatened for early next week, so get down there soon to show your support before the poles go up! Events are happening every day with a May Day benefit night this Saturday starting at 7pm (to follow on from the Tyneside May Day march). Squat Hot Line 07833 646228
