The article mentions the actions of protestor and organiser Olive Morris, who in 1972 climbed to the roof of the building she was occupying to escape eviction. The iconic image became the cover of the Squatter's Handbook in 1979.
Paying tribute to that image, I collaged aspects of the original photograph of Olive with drawn and cut-out elements to build up the scene.
