Violence at Hacienda

The Hacienda, which closed a few months ago, was squatted over the weekend of 5 and 6 June as the fifth "OK-asional Cafe", in order to hold a party to raise money for the sound system confiscated at April's mini-reclaim the streets. Exact details are unclear, but it seems that about 1,000 ex-Hacienda goers turned up expecting an (illegal) rave and when the riot vans turned up violence flared. Police claim they were pelted with stones, resulting in one injury and 20 arrests. We understand the violence was from people attending the rave who had nothing to do with the OK Cafe.

More info as we get it.
