** Come to a DIY-Squatting Weekend, 28th-28th JUNE, in North/East London**

This is a callout to all women and trans-folk that would like to be involved in a weekend of workshops around diy-squatting.
We plan to take advantage of all the usual
challenges that semi-derelict buildings
pose as
a platform for sharing our
knowledge, skills, and experience in all
tasks related to opening and
maintaining a healthy and happy squat!

These are all the areas that we've
thought of so far, but more ideas
always welcome:
          • Electricity
          • Plumbing
          • Gas
          • Security- doors/locks etc
          • Barricading
          • Legal
          • Dealing w/ cops/owners- talk about experience/share tactics
          • Women/Trans squatting- open discussion on experience of squatting from a women/trans-perspective.
          • Sustainable energy
All levels of experience in any of the above areas are welcome
(you don't
need to have a degree in plumbing to know how to
unblock a pipe and share
this knowledge with others!).

And even if you have no experience in any of the practical,
areas, we also hope to have a platform to share
experiences, stories and
advice related to all aspects of
squat-living from a trans/woman's
perspective, so all experience

Please get in touch if you'd like to help out at all in
organising this
weekend - We'll need help finding a suitable
space and preparing it for
the weekend, publicising the gathering,
and then running workshops on the
weekend itself, as well as
collecting and preparing food. We also hope to
provide childcare
(on a rota-basis), so please let us know if you can help
with that.

This gathering will be held on the
weekend of the 28th - 29th June.

You can e-mail us at

Please spread the word!
(Let us know if you would like to be sent leaflets)
