Squatters in Radford

I have been following the tales of a group of squatters as reported on the Indymedia site. Squatters have occupied the JB Spray building in Radford – an old listed industrial building. I have very mixed feelings about this saga.

On the one hand the building has been unused for many years and it is good that someone is using it. On the otherhand some of the squatters posts betray an adolescent attitude. For example, the obvious glee at the policeman’s mistakes.

Or maybe I’m just getting too old!

    Is this not part of Cameron’s Big Society initiative then? I thought the BS was all about empowerment and communities helping themselves.

    Do you think that this isn’t what he meant?
