The Vortex Social Centre was evicted this morning at 5.00am by high court bailiffs and 3 van loads of police. The 8 or so people staying were escorted out of the building without incident. No arrests were made.
We managed to retrieve most of our equipment and plan to resume social centre activities in the area as soon as is possible.
Thank you to all those people who contributed in making the Vortex an extraordinary, if short-lived, experience.
Needless to say we will be back.
