Saving Salt Lake's Squat
For a number of years now, the Bikehouse has been an established activist house in downtown salt lake. It's been home to punk rock kids, artists, vegans and alike. it's been a temporary home for hundreds of bands passing through town, or activists who need a place to crash while touring. It has been featured in a documentary by National Geographic, the book PUNKHOUSE, a number of independent documentaries and articles in papers all over the country. It has been a staple in the punk rock and activist community for nearly a decade. It is one of the longest running squats in the United States, and represents a symbol in the social housing movement, and sticking it to the man!! It is now home to 4 people, 3 cats, and one dog... and it's in jeopardy.
At the end of last month, the residents of bike house recieved a notice from the state that if $6200 is not paid by November 30th, the house would be taken from us. Scrounging together what they could, the residents realized quickly that they didn't have the means to make that much in such short notice, and are looking to the community for help.
