A squatter, who refused to identify herself, prepares a meal at the house where she and others reside in London, Tuesday Oct. 11, 2011. Five people live in the brick and stucco 19th-century row house on a street of 600,000 British pound (950,000 US dollars) homes. The owner is unhappy about the unwanted guests, but they are not committing a crime _ something that could change if the British government has its way.Squatting is a well-established, if socially unpopular, tradition in Britain. While the government does not keep hard numbers, it cites an estimate of 20,000 squatters nationwide. Britain’s Conservative-led administration says squatters are an anti-social scourge, and is considering criminalizing the practice of living in empty buildings without the owner’s permission. It’s currently only a civil offense. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
