The Red and Black Umbrella and Cardiff Squatters Network have shared a number for the last year.
This number was cut off by the greedy capitalists at giffgaff in April after we sent you all too many text messages (even though we were on an unlimited free text package)!
The new number for the RBU and the Squatters Network is 078 4560 1239.
Look out for many more texts from us (until they cut us off again probably), and shortly we will send out a reminder about today’s workday (starting at 11am) and upcoming events this weekend: KilnAboy gig – Friday / Folk, Garden and Art Day – Sunday!
We’d also like to say a big welcome into being to SubrosA, the newest social centre in the UK - now open in Manchester. You can read more about them here and the family of social centre’s in the UK here.
Love and peas, and rage, and squeebs x

While we knew him for only a short time, we couldn’t fault the dedication and passion of a comrade uncompromised by the struggle…
“a comrade through and through….i will remember him for a long time.”
“a top bloke and a good mate. You taught me a lot and your conviction in your beliefs was something to be admired, I’m grateful for the time we had”
“Darko was in his early twenties. He died too soon, like many of the best.”
“REST IN POWER COMRADE”
The struggle goes on, he will be in our minds and hearts as the barricades go up and the battles go on…
Hope to see you down the RBU on Wednesday 8th Jan (tomorrow) as we have another workday.
A few of us are putting a vegan breakfast on at 11am for anyone that can come by, and the plan is to eat together and then to get on with a few jobs by midday.
The fortnightly “tea, cake and chat” about the social centre, which is the space to bring ideas, energy and plan for future events, is also back at 7pm tonight.
Other things are back this week as well, including meditation on Thursday at 8:30pm.
Another thing we’re back on is twitter, after a longer break there, check @RedBlackBrolly for updates, news, links and more.
Thanks and happy new year from the crew x
People’s Kitchen is back again tonight at the Red and Black Umbrella.
