Squatting not rotting

We had a meeting with Morris of the Watermouth Housing Association at the Pembroke Arms next door to the Art College.

Morris first came to Watermouth in the ‘60s as a mod and says he only planned on staying for the weekend—this much I gained from snatches of overheard conversation. He talks very rapidly and with a slight impediment. It’s taken ten years to build up a respectable image for the Watermouth squatting movement and he proudly showed us the leader from a recent copy of the Herald titled “Squatting, Not Rotting,” which tacitly supported squatting (horrible word—occupation sounds better).
