An ASBO was served on Luton airport, and there were other events around the UK & the rest of Europe.

After 10 months of occupation by local residents, Oxfords last remaining boatyard, Castle Mill boatyard, finally succumbed to the forces of darkness this morning when it was evicted by dozens of bailiffs, security guards and police. The boatyardâ€™s owners, public corporation British Waterways, want to sell the land for development despite planning permission for the site having been repeatedly refused. Property developers Castlemore are rumoured to be interested in acquiring the site. At the time of writing British Waterways are craning boats still undergoing repair back into the water and several people have been arrested whilst trying to defend their homes.
Three people arrested on last month's critical mass in Southend-on-sea, Essex.

A group of squatters have taken over Home Farm in Stanmer and in a week successfully turned it into a community centre.
Our aim is to reclaim disaffected public buildings and council properties to create community based projects (art exhibitions, plays, workshops, classes, lectures etc.) for the benefit of Brighton residents, as well as involving the squatting community in positive activities.
9am, Monday May 29.
POLICE did not return during the night. The protesters are asking for people to come and bring them a wheel barrow, more tarpaulins, polyprop rope, climbing harnesses and 100mm nails. But most of all they need PEOPLE there to back them up.
