Heads-up for the long-awaited Issue 5 of your friendly, local squatters’ paper.
SLAP! is a squatter’s freesheet first printed in early 2016. After a quick half-year of squat-hopping, sitting around and organising elsewhere, some of us involved in the previous four issues teamed up with others and knocked-together a fifth. SLAP! is back to support the flow of counter-info between London squats and act as a semi-regular message-board for squat happenings, updates and unapologetic ideas.
As with past issues, no.5 couldn’t have worked without contributions from a broad mix of London squats. For the sixth (and hopefully issues after), we’ll take resistance write-ups; international updates; graphics; upcoming squat happenings or callouts for action; legal and practical info and shortcuts; offers of translation into different languages; details and photos of scumbag owners, bailiffs or private security; tales from squatting’s past and comments on wherever it’s heading; or anything else (produced by and for London squatters) you want to see in SLAP!.
(Please don’t send us anything that supports property guardianship or owner-friendly squatting; promotes cooperation with bailiffs, the police, fascists or other agents of control and social oppression; reproduces self-congratulatory lifestylism or the macho culture of “professional squatting”; or would incriminate or endanger yourselves, your squat or others.)
