An occupied social centre in a disused Job Centre in Deptford saw off its first eviction attempt on Tuesday (12th). Renamed the Social Centre Plus, it has been squatted for over a month in protest against the cuts - with meetings, film nights and other community activities aplenty.

The bailiffs who turned up at the site to turf them out made a swift exit within five minutes, having seen a crowd of 30 people demonstrating outside. The building’s owner was granted permission in court to forcibly remove the occupiers at the end of March, so more eviction attempts look likely in the future.
