Hard News: Squatting in the Square, in reply to
That is the first squat I lived at in London, 1989 I think. I didn't stay long and ended up on a semi squatted estate in north London. I have lived in squats in Amsterdam, Berlin, Northern Italy, Spain and visited many others in countries throughout Europe. It is a really good scene to be involved in and is very creative. I have worked on many parties and festivals at squats and the DIY ethos is inspiring. I wish we had a similar thing going on here in N.Z, it is something I really miss from my many years in Europe.
