London: Anti-Capitalist Squatters Take-Over Royal Mint Building

The Daily Mail have reported another important headline quoting::

'All about the money! 20 anti-capitalist squatters drape banner over the iconic former Royal MINT in London and force police to negotiate through a cracked window'

Message: The squatters, pictured, are protesting because of the 'unacceptable' housing crisis in Britain
Pete Phoenix, 45, from Camden Mothership, one of four organisations occupying the building, said: 'There are 104,000 homeless children in this country which is completely unacceptable when there are 1.5 million empty buildings in the UK.

'We want an end to homelessness - we want these buildings to be used. Ordinary Londoners are now being priced out of London. Even people on good wages are unable to buy.

'We want everyone to have a home and we want to raise awareness.

'There are hundreds of thousands of homeless people and massive empty buildings like this could home 500 or 1000 people.

'Manchester and Bristol Councils have already opened up some of their empty buildings.' 
Also among the throng, was a former soldier and Iraq War veteran, who would only be named as Ian. 

He said: 'I am 35 years old and I was in the army since I was 16.

'I was medically discharged at 27 for bad hearing and I have lived on the streets ever since.
'This time I have had enough. I don't want to be homeless anymore.

'The Government are either going to have to house people or, by the summer, I will be marching up to the Queen's house to make her listen.'

Royal Mint Court has five buildings spread across five acres including Burgess House which the squatters entered.'

Take the Holy Bible and Quote the Scriptures...

Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will indeed obey this word, then there shall enter the gates of this house kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their servants and their people. But if you will not obey these words, I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation. Jeremiah 22:3-5

Deuteronomy 10:18
He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. 

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Pslam 82:3

A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge. Proverbs 29:7

Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? James 2:5

Peace be with you
