Re: [smygo] British Govt Bans Squatting to Tackle "Anarchists"
- The ban came in two months ago. 90% of NGO's were against it. The first
jailing happened in late September.
Squatting in non-residential buildings is still legal. Campaign groups
think other exceptions will be established as courts interpret the new law.
There is also speculation that squat defence could become more militant as
a result of the new law - as happens in most European countries.
Weatherley just got some comeuppance as well.
