Shed 22 had been fighting evictions since July 2020. On the morning of Tuesday 17 November 2020, without any warning, in the midst of lockdown, bailiffs, along with police, three vans, dogs and sledgehammers, homeless people occupying the long-disused community centre, ‘Shed 22’ were evicted. No alternative housing option has been provided by the local Council. 
The squatters moved into Shed 22 during last summer. The local Council (Newham) Council made an eviction order and claimed the building would be demolished.  
Newham Trades Council support the plight of the homeless.
