The Post Bag: Letters To Squall

Ex-Squatting Statesman

Squall 07, Summer 1994, pg. 33.

Dear Squall,

Thanks for the latest copy of the magazine.

It’s a very interesting and well produced publication. Do let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.

As you probably know, I was very active in the squatting movement throughout the 1970s and early 80s and co-authored the book, “Squatting: The Real Story" in 1979. You have all my support in what you are doing in the much more difficult circumstances of the 1990s. I will be sending a personal donation towards the campaign, in the meantime I have placed Squall on the complimentary subscribers list and so you should be receiving a free copy from now on.

I hope you find it interesting.

All the best,

Steve Platt (Editor)
