Petition for squatters’ rights

 
October 5th 2016
 

A petition has been launched to encourage the owners of former Manchester pub, the Ducie Bridge, to allow a group of around 30 homeless people to continue squatting at the property until it is demolished.

The homeless squatters have been served an eviction notice from Manchester authorities due to asbestos in the building posing a ‘health and safety’ threat to the dwellers, but squatter and petition-starter Danny Jones told the Manchester Evening News it is not an issue, and “will only prove hazardous if disturbed and poses no risk to the occupants.”
