Brixton Gentrification Struggles 1993-2021: A Timeline

This timeline charts sixty events, campaigns and places in the Brixton gentrification struggles in chronological order. It starts with the 1993 Brixton City Challenge to the merciless implementation of Lambeth’s Future Brixton Masterplan in the 2010s, along with the enforcement of austerity measures following the 2008 financial crisis. It ends with the enforced gentrification of the Pope’s Road area in 2021, which is now marketed as Brixton Rec Quarter. All entries link to articles, images, videos and some books/ theses which document activist perspectives as comprehensively as possible.

This Timeline was put together by Jordi Blanchar and Marion Hamm and has been archived by Activist Media Project and published by MayDay Rooms.
