Occupiers took a large abandoned/repossessed (bank-owned) house in the Central District today, November 19th. The building is located at 23rd & Alder across the street from Garfield High School.
The banner displayed across the facade reads “Occupy Everything / No Banks / No Landlords” with a circle-A. Political posters and graffiti have quickly sprung up on the building.
Occupiers spoke and chanted against the gentrification of the Central District, and many passers by who live in the neighborhood have expressed support.
The occupation is currently continuing indefinitely, and occupiers have asked for supporters to come join them or visit the space. They are also requesting supplies and work help. To find out exactly what they need one could check Facebook or ask around, but all of the obvious things would probably be welcome, keeping in mind the space does not yet have running water or energy.
Against private property and the domination that maintains it!
For the spread of occupations!
