Social Centre Moves... And Moves Again

The Sheffield Social Centre, in almost no time at all, has received the attention of University lawyers, and forced an eviction. The Sheffield Star takes the story here, with their fine journalistic standards.

"We regret the fact that at a time of cost savings, valuable university funds were required to take legal measures to address such actions."

Hmm.

Anyway, now 10 Northumberland Road has been occupied. But... by about 4.30, once again the notices have been served. Not surprising considering its owned by the local NHS trust, whom I'm informed have the same legal people as the University. It might be wise to pick another part of the city where:

-There's a greater number of disused buildings
-The locals are more likely to support it

We shall see.
