Offmarket Collective on Lower Clapton Road
You may have noticed the new occupants at 111 Lower Clapton Road (formally Faith bookshop), this is the Offmarket collective, who are occupying the space after it’s been empty for over a year.This is the email I got from them:There are lots of ideas about what to do with this space!One is to initially try and link to local and broader struggles that are happening in Hackney around issues like the coming cuts, housing, employment, gentrification, supermarket invasion etc. There will also be a FreeZone, where you can bring what you don’t need any more and take what you need ; an InfoLibrary with literature available about various political subjects ; promoting and defending squatting ; skill-sharing etc.It would be lovely to hear from you and what you would like to see happening in a space like this. For now and in the future, we are open to your comments and feedback (or complaint!) about what we are doing.
