Discussion in 'Brixton' started by editor, Mar 19, 2019.
I'm tempted to go for the very last night tonight.
We've just got back in! Tonight is going to be special!
I admire your stamina Sir.
Last ever night at the 414. End of an era. So fucking sad.
Does anyone know of a walk in medical centre open today?
Google is telling me the one in Streatham has been closed for over a year?
I've never used it, but there's one at Clapham Junction. I don't know if there's anything closer to Brixton.
The Junction Health Centre
Thanks. I saw that one on Google. But looking further into it, it says you have to register with them as your main gp.
So I'd have to leave mine. At least that's how it seems to work.
Ok looks like I'm wrong. I just noticed the don't need to be registered part. Thanks will try that.
Specially on those occasions when he's said nothing in the slightest objectionable
Liked for 'good luck!'
Good night for the LDs and Greens and we all now have a MEP, Scott.
Why we will remember Theresa May as one of the worst prime ministers in British history
Good riddance to racialist rubbish.

Some pics from Friday night at the Effra and Saturday at Market House. Quite different nights as you can see!
It was a bloody busy weekend with the last nights of the 414 and Jack's wake at the Windmill....

Nearly half a million rent per annum!

Brixton article - New homes for Brixton – but what of a new interchange and station?
I think some proper guerilla gardening is called for.
I think it’s the fucking up of guerilla gardening which is being objected too.
From a prominent local Black Green:
"BRIXTON IS the second most famous black community in the world; Harlem’s first. Here are two equally famous – sometimes infamous - neighbourhoods that members of the Diaspora have proudly chosen to call home ..."
So What Makes Brixton Tick?
TBH I find this depressing. Someone started a thread about voluntary work on Urban. One poster said they do go around to plant flowers etc in streets.
I've read all the notes.
Looks to me that a some local residents have been trying to do their bit and make the street look nice.
And have been accused of being gentrifiers.
Its imo depressing that its come to this.
Their are plenty of things that have happened or are happening to local area re gentrification.
Like scumbag developers wriggling out of affordable housing, Network Rail and the arches, a supine local Labour Council who have no answers to gentrification.
Yet a few locals who try to make the streets look a bit better, voluntarily for no pay, are accused of being gentrifiers.
This is offensive.
I'm the first to criticse this Council and property developers. Capitalism is the problem not well meaning people planting flowers.
Rebel Dykes! - There's a meeting locally soon, about the women who lived in Brixton squats in the 80s, with a showing of the trailer and discussion with Fisch - one of the rebel dykes who will be telling us about their project to make a full length documentary film.
PM me for details if you are interested.
I'd be fucked off if someone nicked flowers I'd planted - but then I also see people helping themselves to daffodils that appear outside the Barrier Block every year. Fuckers.
Happy to list it on Buzz (but only if they want/need the publicity). If so, mail me the details, if not, ignore this post!
See from Twitter account Rachel Thompson is local feminist commentator. Quick Google and she has done some interesting stuff.
not for this event, thanks - its a small free discussion. I'll ask the Rebel Dykes if they want coverage of the film documentary project though.
I haven't listed details on U75 listings as we have had some dubious journalists contacting us as they have seen it here, demanding comments from us.
You've posted this up directly after the post about gentrification and Street gardening.
I can only conclude you are taking a position on that.
Your time here you've always posted up links but you have never put up links and said what your view is.
So what is your view on the street gardening?

If you can... Please give blood at Lambeth Town Hall, Tuesday 4th June 2019
Im a regular blood donor.
Its quite easy process.
I use the London West End Blood donor centre near Oxford Circus. Its permanent centre open seven days a week now. Unlike the ones like this that move around. So if one can't do this one there is the West End centre. I go on weekends.
Its well worth doing. Blood donations in this country are voluntary ( not paid for ) and NHS always need blood.
They text me where the blood went. After 10 donations I got a badge and certificate. So they appreciate what you do.
A tip always drink plenty of water based drink before donating.
London West End Blood Donor Centre
Blood donation saved my life, cheers to all the bleeding darlings that donate
One of the things that makes me more positive about this country in these Brexit times is when I go to the West End Blood donor centre. Its very busy. With a diverse range of people. Its worth going just to see there is another side to this country.
