195 Mare Street Evicted

Around 5am 2nd September 2010, high court bailiffs turned up in force, for the second eviction attempt on the east London social center. around 30 officers failed to batter the grade 2 listed door in, and then moved on to the chain saws.

This awoke residents sleeping inside who had seconds to react as the bailiffs, in a change in strategy started smashing through the grade 2 listed windows, despite being clearly labeled. It just shows that Dunbar bank doesn’t care about the buildings historic past, only the money that can be made from the construction of more yuppy flats.
