The Guardian: Hammerson property occupied 'by the people'!

(or read more below)

"31 Jan: A group of protesters took control of an abandoned Leeds building [for a tea-shop] this morning, in protest against government welfare cuts and the 'gentrification' of the city centre."

"A spokeswoman for Eastgate developers Hammerson said the company is likely to make a statement tomorrow."

UPDATE: 1 Feb, tea-time (appropriately)

New posting on the Guardian web site
"Andrew Hilston, project director for the Eastgate Quarters development, was responding to comments made by protesters who have occupied a building and set up the Cuts Cafe in Templar Street, which is part of the area due to be developed."
