Hey folks, I'm arriving in London next Wed the 31st. I'm going to hit up some of the infoshops and social centers and try to get connected with some squattas. Anyone wanna hang out while I'm there? If you have any recommendation for things to check out I'd appreciate that too! I'm heading out to France probably on Aug 4th.

hope you find 'the scene' - squatting in England (London in particular) has been severely fucked with due to changes in the law - it is now illegal to squat residential buildings - its now a criminal rather than civil offence : supposedly you can be fined £5000 or put in jail for 6 months !

I'm more from the vehicle dwelling / land squatting traveller community - finding places to park for any length of time is really hard these days - the scene got so big and crazy that new laws were introduced to stop free festivals / land squats / illegal raves etc..... a lot of people then moved in their vehicles to Europe but after a few years the scene got so big and crazy that new laws were introduced etc etc.... fun while it lasted though !

Just got here! My partner and I are heading to Scotland for about a week, but we'll be in London for a majority of the next month. Found a squat with some wonderful people that housed me up for a bit when I was last here about 6 months ago, but it's been evicted and a lot of those folks aren't here right now. I'm also going to be looking for squats, but am couchsurfing for now. Will probably make some posts at infoshops. Hope you find something cool! I might be able to hang out if you're still around when we get back to town.

Oh thanks! I changed my plans and im going to be my n Spain until Sept 2nd, then i come back to London and fly out the next morning on the 3rd. Maybe if you’re around on the 2nd, but if not happy travels. I tried Couchsurfing and really didn’t have any luck. So I wouldn’t bank on it.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $110.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

We are moving the jamboree to New Orleans this year due to some personal disagreements between myself and the lead organizer of the slab city library. Details can be found on the Jambo information thread.
