Holding on to 11 Conduit Street in rich Mayfair

Morning comrades and friends all...

We are still in occupation and hold onto 11 Conduit Street, the former head office of Olympic Airways sold off as part of the austerity package imposed on the Greek people and now the building owned by Qatar Airways (@qatarairways) ruled by the Al Thani family since the mid-19th century and now an absolute monarchy with a very bad human rights record and According to Human Rights Watch in June 2012 hundreds of thousands of mostly South Asian migrant workers in construction in Qatar risk serious exploitation and abuse, sometimes amounting to forced labour.

We cracked the building and 14 others during course of the last 4 months as part of a campaign to highlight the mounting housing crisis now engulfing our country particularly in London.

This is day 2 of our defence, in defiance of our occupation and disobedience of a court imposed IPO, resistance and refusal to vacate on our part and as housing activists is part of the overall protest.

We are on lock-down and the fortifications, the barricades are in place, 16 Love Activists London and supports stand together whilst others hold onto two other buildings in rich Mayfair, our numbers are growing as more activists join our ranks from around the country, we are all in it for the long haul.

More from me latter comrades and do have a great day, but if you can make every day count in the class war!
