Opening of Seattle's first public squat

On January 1st, 2009, a new squat will be opening up in Seattle. A rally of homeless residents from the U-District's Tent City, which the community simply calls "Nickelsville" after Seattle's Mayor Greg Nickels, will have live music and speakers giving talks on the need for free housing for the homeless and impoverished.

At 12:30 in the afternoon, residents and supporters of Nickelsville will gather to discuss their situation, and at 2:30 all will march to the house we intend on expropriating. As a group we will clean up the house, stuff it full of food and goodies, and secure it for our own use.

The rally is being held on the corner of 15th and 45th at the Tent City at 12:30 in the afternoon on Jan. 1st. Please bring signs pertaining to housing rights, squatting, anti-capitalism, and direct action. Bring noise makers and bring friends!
