In the UK there are over 846,000 empty properties, and thousands of homeless people. The math is not hard to work out. Squatting is a solution to homelessness, empty properties, speculation and building unnecessary new homes on Greenfield sites. It provides homes for those who can't get public housing and who can't afford extortionate rents. Squatting creates space for needed community projects. Squatting means taking control instead of being pushed around by bureaucrats and property owners.


This life is NOT for everybody, in many peoples eyes what you are doing is illegal and you are going to have to bend the rules to get away with it. However squatting no matter what people say is NOT illegal but it is frowned upon especially after the Thatcher years and the legislation that was brought in by her government.
