On Tuesday we went to support the second resistance of the year, this time in a much loved community garden project in Camden.
Derelict greenhouses, left to ruin for over 12 years, transformed into a thriving community garden and arts space. A really inspiring use of urban wasteland. More about this amazing project here:

colourfully dressed resistance saw off the forces of darkness in true community style . Numerous vans of police, a dog team and a helicopter were peacefully deflected by the 80 strong resistance. An aggressive attack on the group locked on outside the front gates led to one arrest and a few minor injuries. Once the chain on the gate had been angle grinded off, those inside the perimeter fought back with heavy barricades and sheer community power. People clambered to the roof and those on the ground piled pallet after pallet against the gates. Much joy was had when, after a frenzied attack, the cops, bailiff’s and security staff decided to call it a day. The residents of the Camden Garden centre sleep once again amongst their blossoming community garden.

Here’s the pic’s:

First cops on scene calling for backup
Cops quickly grew in numbers
Rooftop resistance
Cops and bailiffs suddenly charge at the resistance in front of the gate
Cops pulling and kicking at the peaceful resistance
Angle grinding the chain on the gate
One arrest for an alleged breach of the peace
People protecting each other from angry cops
Cops still unable to get in….
The resistance defiantly move back into position once the cops pull back
A song of success when the forces of darkness  finally sulk off with their tails between their legs
