Beginning ofhttps://london.indymedia.org.uk/system/photo/2010/10/11/4665/squat.jpg.display.jpg October 2010, a police station was squatted in London in retaliation against police oppression.

What follows is a communique’ from the occupied to the occupiers:

‘This is for everyone who has suffered injustice at the hands of the police.
This is for everyone who has been robbed by a banker,
This is for every soldier who was sent to war on lies.
This is for every refugee who is hounded for having there homes destroyed.
This is for the people who sleep on the streets on the outside of empty buildings.
THIS IS FOR YOU
RISE UP NOW!#* IT’S NOW OR NEVER…’
