The Squatted Circle Community Centre

London, England - A group of squatters have been evicted, for the second time from their home, a former police station still owned by the department, in Arbour Square, Stepney. An embarrassed Scotland Yard hopes that this will be their final eviction effort as they plan to sell the building for £2million. Another group in Tufnell Park Road, Holloway have occupied the four abandoned St George's Theatre and put it to use as a community center. The Circle Community Centre, which oppened last November, offers a wide variety of workshops and performances in the building as well as yoga and meditation classes. The Pentecostal church group House On The Rock who own the site have been making efforts to evict the project, which is likely to drag on for years.
