6-30am thursday 12th August 1999 after 18 years and 6 months occupation.

(Read the background to the story here)

This morning at 6-30am 150 riot police backed by an armed squad and a helicopter sealed off Railton Rd and adjoining streets before bursting into 121 through the first floor window. Within minutes the 8 occupiers had been removed and the council went about trashing and barricading the building. A van of police continue to guard the building 16 hours later. Another van load have been stationed at the Town Hall building to guard against anti-council action. Protests and other actions against the eviction and planned auction of the building are currently being put together.

We are asking people to join the howls of protest against the council's evil actions and the continuing gentrification of Brixton. You can do so by emailing the people listed below on our our hit list or by joining an international fax protest planned for this coming Monday 16th August. The protest is aimed against the following people whom we ask that you send a nasty message (or black fax).

This is a legal action so fax-

Lambeth Legal Service- The people who put the case against 121 and the eviction together. Fax- 0171 926 2313

Nelson Bakewell- The speculators who want to sell off 121 along with hundreds of other properties to line the council's pockets. Fax- 0171 544 2299.

Thanks, Friends of 121.
