The Autonomous Nation of Anarchist Libertarians (Anal) say say they have been in the Grade II listed building in Eaton Square since Wednesday. They intend to use it as a homeless shelter and community centre, open to any group that “would disgust the wealthy”.
This property was built in the early 1820’s and it had been used as a language school. It’s believed to be empty since Russian oligarch Andrey Goncharenko bought it in 2014. He also purchased three other properties in London in a three year period including one of the most expensive properties in UK.
ANAL, The Autonomous Nation of Anarchist Libertarians claimed that they occupied the place in Facebook.
They said in a post: “We’re back. We’ve opened our first squat in Belgravia. We intend to erect an [antisocial]\[discommunity] centre open to all individual groups who wish to unite under one roof.
“If it would disgust the wealthy, you’re welcome here.”
