We’re very sad to say that the Factory was evicted by police, Delta security and court bailiffs at 6am on November 16.
Two men were arrested. One was released when police realised he wasn’t the person they were looking for. The other has been bailed until January. He may be facing charges relating to the smashing of windows at the evening post in august. However, the evidence is flimsy to say the least, so he and his solicitor are confident these charges will be dropped. All other residents were simply put out onto the street. Everyone is okay.
Thanks to everyone who came out in the morning, those who have helped people find places to stay, and to everyone who has put in work over the last year and a half.
The flag is no longer flying on the roof, but the fight isn’t over.
