On Friday 1st August, at nine in the morning, police and bailiffs kicked down the door of the social centre and gave residents one meager hour to collect all their stuff and leave. The night before, Tesco had lost their planning appeal, and this action shows their arrogance, as they were clearly banking on winning the appeal.

So the Mill Road Social Centre is no more. We’ve had a good three months, though, so thanks to everyone who put in their energy to make this space happen. And fear not, the struggle goes on, so there’s still time to get involved!
