Squatting Spring – 2015

February 2015 saw the beginning the Squatting Spring, kicked off by the Squatters Bloc at the March for Homes, taking over a block of flats at the decanted Aylesbury Estate in Elephant and Castle after the standard A-to-B march. The action inspired a spate of political occupations across the country, giving renewed vigor to squatting as a tactic and form of resistance. Actions ranged from social tenants taking homes, to the antics of ANAL in the wealthy West End.
