Five jailed for opening empty bank building to house the homeless

In a week when a lot of the media was apparently captivated by such major issues as a bloke not singing a song and a bloke not going to a rugby game, a court handed down sentences of 10-13 weeks – adding up to over a year in total – for the heinous offence of occupying an empty building and opening it up as a homeless shelter.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
