----- Forwarded message -----



In the last twelve months, MATILDA have turned an abandoned building
into a thriving social centre. For a year we have put on performances,
film showings and exhibitions, as well as providing much needed working
and meeting space for local artists and activists.

This week, we are fighting eviction – and will be demonstrating outside
court to support those inside.

MATILDA needs your support too!  The court case will be heard on

Thursday 22nd June, 10:30am
at Sheffield County Court
The Law Courts, 50 West Bar, Sheffield, S3 8PH.

The demonstration in support of MATILDA will take place outside the
court at the same time.

If evicted, the building will stand empty for at least two years.
Currently, there is no planned development for the site.  We are asking
Yorkshire Forward, to let us stay - at least until they know when the
site will be re-developed.

So – if you've ever been to a gig / film night / art showing / Thursday
social / meeting / bike workshop / clown training or anything else, and
you want to see MATILDA carry on –

get to the demo on Thursday at 10:30!

Tell everyone you know!
