Foundry Squatters Evicted

1908_foundry2.png The people occupying The Foundry in Hoxton were evicted earlier today. The group were the second lot of Foundry squatters, after a first group barricaded themselves inside in June, fighting the plan to destroy the building and construct a particularly unattractive hotel in its place. After spending two months there (during which Londonist was one of the few media outlets to actually get an interview with the people inside), the first group moved on, to be replaced by the second, whom bailiffs removed around lunchtime today. This photo tweeted by @markasaurus shows the aftermath.
