Squatters evicted from building of company that works to stop squatting
More than 20 squatters who have been occupying the former headquarters of a property management company that works to keep squatters out of empty buildings, have been evicted.
The group who moved into the former head office of Camelot Europe in Shoreditch, east London two months ago to highlight housing inequality, were evicted by bailiffs just after 11am on Thursday.
Camelot provides property guardians who look after empty buildings, generally at lower rents. But the squatters say property guardians do not get a good deal from companies such as Camelot and do not have full tenancy rights. The activists say they also want to highlight Britain’s homelessness crisis.
