Brownies’ guide does Brixton proud

Local Brownies Lina and Isla have created what may well be the most entertaining guide to Brixton yet.

Their 11-minute video covers many memorable local sites – from the historic Bon Marché building to the Cherry Groce memorial opened on Windrush Square earlier this year.

The pair, from the 1st Stockwell pack based in Slade Gardens, made the video to gain their Local History Interest badge.

  1. Peace Be With You – It was lovely to see UPRISING last night and to see our brothers and sisters rise up against the oppressor. The greatest threat to humanity today are our leaders and wannabe colonialists bullyboy USA/EU. We work for a pittance still and life passes most of us by as the rich get obscenely richer and the poor poorer. I cannot believe we have gone so many decades since this priceless example in the 80s. No matter race, colour or creed we are all one people and the state still keeps us separate because UPRISING showed us once again that United WE stand and divided we fall.

    Rise up brothers and sisters because WE are the people. Not the few, the minority who cause 99% of global problems and rape and pillage 99% of the worlds resources. We see dear Africa today and since forever fighting oppression despite being manipulated by western sponsored rentamobs designed to force regime changes so that good ole boy puppets can be placed in power to do the bidding of the west yet again. Our dear brothers and sisters in The Middle East are a terrible examples of what will happen to us if we stay divided. The entire region bombed back into the dark ages by war criminals in the west who commit daily crimes against humanity all over the world. Dear Woody Guthrie (The white Sir Bob Marley of early 20century) “This Land Is Your Land” and never forget it. It belongs to us so we must take it back before the few destroy us and the planet. The devil has never been so busy to those who sold their souls for greed. We must stop the west, israel, apartheid and bring back Nuremberg to cull the global nazis again and again. The ICC today is a joke and its no wonder Trump said he doesn’t recognise it. Adolf would have said the same given half a chance.

    Brixton is one part of a big planet. We are all little parts and we must remember to stay united and know our enemies. The state who feed the rich and oppress the poor and any dissent. The real leaders among us must stand up and get rid of the ivory tower brigade to whom none of us would buy a pint because they are not from the same planet. How can Brixton, Toxteth etc vote for todays politicians. Limp wristed charlatans who have destroyed family and society since forever. Stand up, Stand Up. One Love one inity. Follow God alone and nothing can touch us. He will provide. Peace & Love. Peter

    ( I am a 60s/70s white kid and throughout my life black people brought colour to the world In London and beyond. Rastus Eddie the greatest characters you could ever meet. The biggest smiles and beautiful people. Hatred and division doesn’t come from us because we are your brothers and sisters. It is created and fed by the state to divide and conquer. The kick up the **** they got in the riots was never needed more than today. Each one of us can become a politician even rastus at number 16 we just have to stay united to the cause of humanity and not bribery and corruption. We have eyes to see. use them and see what we have become)

    I adored the gals in “Brownies’ guide does Brixton proud” God Bless them little stars and long may they shine. Keep moving forward despite the obsticals they put in our path. if we fight each other we are too busy to fight the filthy rotten system so stay focussed.

    Peace and Love to Y’all.

    RIP all the victims who died for the cause and all.
