Resource Centre Squeezes A Last Laugh

Squall 5, Oct/Nov 1993, pg. 24.

The last four issues of SQUALL have all been collated with the help of a community resource centre in Kings Cross called CopyArt. They provided use of high quality photocopiers and computers at a very cheap price compared to many such commercial set ups and a number of samizdat projects were members, including SQUALL. Unfortunately, Camden Council decided in its cutbacks, to no longer fund the centre and, despite an appeal campaign, the centre had to close-down this year.

Within two weeks of its closure some graffiti appeared on the door consisting of a swastika and the slogan ‘Kill Lefties’. A lifetime’ s subscription of SQUALL is due to the wordsmith who got rid of the swastika and then put the letters ‘S’ in front of ‘KILL’, and ‘ED’ after it.
