Dalston Theatre occupation

This article is over 15 years, 10 months old
Activists occupied the Dalston Theatre in Hackney, east London, last week in a bid to save the historic building from being knocked down by the council. The theatre, which used to house the legendary Four Aces reggae club, has been left derelict and uninhabitable for years by Hackney council. Other local campaigners trying to block the demolition plans won a high court judgement against the council last week. The Open Dalston group wants the area developed into facilities for the local community, rather than the high rise buildings favoured by private contractors.
