Stop Unfair Eviction by Guinness

Brixton, London. Sat 25 Feb 2017


 

 The Revolutionary Communist Group had a street stall close to Brixton Station

 

 I walked past after taking a few pictures to see what was happening in the railway arches

 Some are now boarded up

 but others who have resisted eviction were still trading

 

 

 Church members had come to sing facing the market opposite Electric Avenue

 and on the other side of the railway there was the pop-up 'Pop Brixton'

 

 Brixton Tools was still trading

 Andrew points to his poster to explain what Guinness Trust are doing

 demolishing estates of social housing and putting tenants into properties with unaffordable rents - and then evicting them

 Beti is facing eviciton after being moved out by Guiness Trust - and her rent in the new property was more than double

 what she had been paying. She got into problems paying and is being taken to court as Guinness want to evict her

 Simon Elmer of Architects for Social Housing (ASH) speaks in support of Beti

 

 

 

 

 

 

 They handed out leaflets on the street and many were shocked to hear what was happening
    
 to Beti and others
