The OffMarket collective - invite to their new open space

The OffMarket collective, take disused buildings and turn them into open resources.

They recently moved  to Lower Clapton Road and want to invite supporters of Hackney Unites to ‘come and check out the place, meet us and have a cuppa :)’

‘OffMarket is an open squatted space, a small shopfront on 111 Lower
Clapton Rd E5 0NP. It is not-for-profit and run by volunteers who all live
in or around Hackney. The aim of the space is to be an open resource for people living in the
area and activists, as well as promoting and defending squatting.

We're open Sundays 12-6pm, Mondays 12-6pm, Tuesdays 12-8pm if you want to browse our InfoLibrary with books and zines, and our FreeZone where you can bring what you don't need any more and take what you need!

We are keen on having regular activities/skill-sharing sessions. At the
moment, there is (subject to changes!) French conversations (Sun
6-7.30pm), Gardening (Mon 12onward), Bike fixing (tue 2-6), Juggling (Wed 6-8pm), Clowning (Wed 8-10.30pm), Legal drop-in for anti-cuts and students arrestees (Thu 6-7pm), Practical squatting evenings (1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month 7pm)...Special events like movie screenings, infonights, reading groups etc. also happen on a more irregular basis.

All our events are free/on donation and everyone is welcome (there is a
small step at the front and unfortunately the toilets are not wheelchair

You are very welcome to contact us or to come to our open weekly meeting
on Mondays 7pm if you have any comment or proposal about how to use the
