Dalston Theatre squat evicted


Yesterday (2nd) at 4.30am police arrived to evict the Dalston Theatre in Hackney (See SchNEWS 533), and evicted the building by 9am. The Victorian era theatre had been occupied as a social centre since February this year, to prevent it being knocked down to build 533 luxury flats. The building is steeped in history having been the "4 Aces" reggae club, where Bob Marley once played, but its destruction is one of several assaults on East London as the Olympics steam-rolls into town (see also Queens Market - London's most multi-ethnic market - due to be demolished for, you guessed it, 240 luxury apartments (see SchNEWS 565, and http://www.friendsofqueensmarket.org.uk)
