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
the 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
are always welcome:
- Security- doors/locks etc
- 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,
diy-related 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please spread the word!
(Let us know if you would like to be sent leaflets)
