Mash & Sons fishmongers have put up a new sign – after their first one was mysteriously taken down – directed at Lambeth council which says “Where do you stand?” and paraded it in front of the town hall this morning.
Last weekend A & C Continental deli also put up a new banner which says “Caution: cleansing in process”.
The signs are in protest at Network Rail’s plans for refurbishment of the arches and consequent eviction of the businesses who operate there.
Local businesses who have operated there for decades are likely to be replaced with big chains who are able to pay the hiked up rents.
The Save Brixton Arches campaign has vowed to fight the evictions and has received a lot of support in the local community.
Tonight Brixton Buzz is holding a fightback concert at Electric Brixton to raise money for housing campaigners, including the Brixton arches.
