Converging on the Ridiculous

The location of the Brighton International Squatter's Convergence has been announced. If you're heading up there it's here. Look around for a door and knock!

The Convergence has taken over the old CO-OP department store on London Rd. The site has been empty for years. SchNEWS took a preliminary stroll around the frankly labyrinthine building and with 150 property reclamation specialists from across Europe already in attendance it looks like it's gonna be a good weekend.
