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.

Critical Mass tonight (26th May) was the biggest we've had yet in Glasgow. Too many to count accurately but 70+ was many folks' best guess. You could it was bigger from the start in George Square, no more wondering which corner the cyclists are at.
A get-together for anyone wanting to set-up a 'neighbourhood'
At the Camp for Climate Action this Summer (26th Aug - 4th Sept) there will be 'neighbourhoods' - groups that can set up camp together if they wish. If you want to be part of a Bristol and South West group, come along to my place for a first meeting up.
Since 2004, the World Naked Bike Ride has been spreading it's message of opposition to car culture and oil dependency in rides throughout the globe. The ride celebrates the power and individuality of the human body. Many riders will have their first experience of social and non-sexual nudity through the ride. All rides are clothing optional in the truest sense. There is no pressure for riders to go more clothed or nude than they wish. Rides range in size from the very small (Sao Paolo 2004 had 2 riders) to the very large (Zaragosa 2004 had 400 riders). The average ride is under 100 riders, but London beat the odds by having 250 riders in 2005 for it's second ever ride. There are over 100 rides planned for 2006.
INVITATION TO THE NEXT CAMP FOR CLIMATE ACTION ORGANISING MEETING IN LONDON, SATURDAY 10TH & SUNDAY 11TH JUNE 2006

We are currently on course for a 3C degree rise in temperature, which is likely to mean the deaths of 400 million of the world's poorest people, and a social crisis that will engulf us all. And still the insane machine rumbles on: political clichÃ©s about sustainable growth, full steam ahead for nuclear power, the new Airbus, civil war in Iraq, the gridlocked motorways rumbling towards oil depletionâ€¦
