A group of squatters is running an autonomous social centre in the heart of Deptford. The squat has been going for nearly six months now, after the crew was evicted from three previous squats on the high-street. The squatters have received a great response from the local working-class community and continue to host events for both squatters and the wider neighbourhood.
Running an autonomous cafe, with tea, coffee and snacks, as well as a place to chill out and relax, the squatters are distributing books, clothes and information on political happenings in London and beyond. There is space for radical left-wing groups to hold meetings or host events.
One squatter remarked: “It’s a rare situation in which people are welcomed to come in and participate in the squat without necessarily being “part” it.”
The current address is now (as of 10/03/20)
38-40 Deptford High St
Open from Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12pm-3pm and 7pm-9pm; and on Sundays 12pm-3pm
