Stop the Rushcroft Road Eviction
Monday 15th July, 6:30am (sorry it’s so early!)
Outside Clifton Mansions, Rushcroft Road, Brixton

Join the people of the Rushcroft Road to stop Lambeth evicting Brixton.

They are 75 people living in 6 blocks of flats in central Brixton who are facing eviction from our homes. Most of us have lived in, occupied and squatted the buildings for decades. One person has been here for 32 years. Generations of families have grown up here.

Lambeth council have let these buildings go into a state of dis-repair. We have made these buildings into our homes.

Now there are significant profits to be made in Brixton they will renovate the buildings and sell them off. In doing so they are destroying a community with deep roots in the local area. This is part of a wider trend in and around London boroughs where councils socially cleanse, motivated solely by money, pushing out those who have been for many years.

We demand that Lambeth council stops making people homeless.

We invite you to join us for the eviction on Monday 15th July. Show Lambeth council that they can’t continue to make people in Brixton homeless. Tell your neighbors! Bring your Mum, Dad and Grandma! Make some noise! We expect an early start so invite you to meet on Rushcroft road at 6.30am.
