ANARCHISTS have occupied and taken over an abandoned police station in London.
Activists from the Green Anti-Capitalist Front took over the premises at Paddington Green, central London, on Friday night and were still there today.
An attempt by the Metropolitan Police to evict the protesters proved unsuccessful.
The station, which was closed by authorities in 2018, was known as a high security detention centre where terrorism suspects were held and questioned.
The group’s intention is to turn the space into a community centre, and to host a set of workshops and other events as part of a “week of action against capitalism” later on this month.
A statement by the group said that their actions are “motivated by the belief that capitalism by its very nature will continue to destroy our planet and ultimately our civilisation.
“Only by ending capitalism and finding a new system, immediately, can we hope to survive in any meaningful way to the end of this century.”
