Campaigners fighting to prevent the sale of a church-owned community centre in south Liverpool started an occupation of the building on Saturday.
Community activists say they want to keep Bankfield House in Banks Road in Garston, open for the local community.
They claim their views are being ignored by newly-appointed trustees.
Property owner, the Church of England, said it could not afford to maintain the building and subsidise the centre. A public meeting is planned next week.
Bankfield House has been in an awful state ever since I can remember almost 20 odd years ago we used to knock about around it.
The building looks bad
