(en) Britain, class war Death of a community: The cafes are cleared out of Brixton Station Road BY MIKE URBAN

Date Sun, 9 Oct 2016 15:30:06 +0300


Brixton, 4 October: The once bustling Brixton Station Road feels a very different place these days, with most of its popular cafes closed down in advance of Network Rail's hugely unpopular refurbishment plans, which will take up to a year to complete. ---- We took a look around Cafe Rio as it was being stripped out over the weekend. ---- The owner told us that he'd been here for ten years, when Brixton was a far harder place to do business in. ---- Like a lot of people on the sharp end of gentrification, he said that he felt he was being kicked out to make way for new trendy businesses - the kind of businesses that had no interest at all in Brixton until recently. He wasn't sure if his business would be able to return. ---- Inside the Rio Cafe. ---- The affordable Station Cafe was also being evicted. ---- Cafe Brixton clears out.

BRIXDONE. The boarded up frontage of the popular Max Snack Bar.

The night before, a closing party was held along Station Road. It went on very late!

The morning after, with the seemingly eviction-proof Ekcovision bar continuing to do business behind velvet ropes.

Some of the traders are refusing to give up the battle, and you can read about their crowdfunding appeal here.

Prop left over from the solidarity demonstration last month.
