121 Railton Road

From 1981 to 1999, three floors of 121 Railton Road, Brixton, South London hosted a squatted centre, serving the local community as as a bookshop, cafe, gig and rehearsal space, printing facility, office and meeting space.
Over the years, several campaign and community groups were based at the centre, including radical women's magazine Bad Attitude, AnarQuist (the anarcho-queer group), Brixton Squatters' Aid and the prisoner support group Anarchist Black Cross.
The premises also hosted punk gigs ('Dead by Dawn'), regular women's cafe nights and a monthly Queer Night, hosting vegan banquets to film nights to live cabarets to zine-making to glittery glammed-up disco parties.
After a long occupation, in January 1999, the squatters lost in court against Lambeth Council's claim for possession of the premises and an eviction order was issued.
