4th May 2015 – A speedy shot from Pier Head of the previous Lender of England developing.
For about a 7 days now the “Love Activists” squatting team has been occupying the Lender of England developing on Castle Street in the centre of Liverpool. They have opened the previous bank as a room for the homeless with kitchen area, sleeping room and many others. They are anticipating eviction, and not long ago (29 April) large quantities of law enforcement arrived at the developing in what seemed established to be an attack on the squat. Nonetheless, immediately after harassing individuals outdoors and issuing a dispersal purchase, most of the cops still left. Up to now, the developing continues to be occupied. For much more info and updates see the occupiers’ fb page. Below we repost a statement of needs from the team, by using squat.web.

We make this document a Statement of Intent pertaining to the previous Lender of England developing on Castle Street, Liverpool. The intentions are as follows to feed, cloth and assistance all those people who find it and for the local neighborhood to assistance useful resource this job.

We intend to use this developing for the neighborhood, to inspire a sensation of neighborhood, which is missing.

We do this in immediate response to a local council and federal government who are missing in their initiatives to assistance those people in need and in reality, the local Council and federal government seem intent on building issues even worse for the individuals by placing much more and much more austerity actions in spot.

We would like by the immediate action of occupying an empty unused developing and making use of stated developing to offer certain demands for the avenue individuals or for that make any difference everyone else who demands to use what is presented by donations, which occur from the local neighborhood.

We intend to dwell in peace and harmony with our local neighborhood and will resolve any difficulties which are introduced to our attention.

@Enjoy Activists (Liverpool) previous Lender of England.
Our needs are as follows:

1. We demand Mayor Joe Anderson meets with us prior to the finish of this 7 days

two. We demand the Merseyside Labour councils and Joe Anderson Mayor rejects the cuts and suggests no to austerity and no to the cuts. We are struggling ‘Enuf is Enuf’ – we and they need sanctuary.

3. We demand all of the homeless we have been supporting, assisting to offer a feeling of value and belonging are re-housed right away.

4. We demand Social Services and Mental Health Services undertake immediate assessments of those people we are supporting, they are quite vulnerable.

five. We have learned the drug and alcoholic beverages rehabilitation products and services are underfunded and unsupported, with long ready lists, cuts to funding. These products and services should be perfectly resourced and secured. We say no to privatisation.

6. The voices of the homeless should be heard and their requests should be actioned and they should be handled as equals.

7. We have also learned that the Homeless Provision in Merseyside is at breaking issue, we have been operating with the Whitechapel Centre in specific and will keep on with that favourable marriage.

8. We demand that the first move to restoration for those people with addition difficulties is a roof about their heads, this is a precedence about their restoration.

9. We would also like to thank the neighborhood and firms of Liverpool and more afield for their generous assist in solidarity of our immediate action to occupy the Lender of England – we have only got this far with that assist.

10. We keep on to peacefully resist our removing from the Occupied Lender till our needs are met in entire.

In peace and solidarity @Enjoy Activists (Liverpool)
