Housing commission versus “empty” houses

Posted by on August 6, 2011

This is the single greatest article about squatting I have ever found in a mainstream media source. I mean, it’s not really “about” squatting, but it’s squatting related. Basically, the Housing Commission sent out wrecking crews to destroy the former Glebe estate squats in the early 90s. But they weren’t as careful as they should have been with little details like which houses were squats, and which were privately owned. Oops.
