Brixton ‘celebrate’ Thatcher’s death
Brixtonian’s and others around the UK celebrate Thatcher’s death with “street parties”.
While many of you were sleeping in the early hours of Tuesday morning, revellers took on Brixton to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher.
The former Prime Minister, who died on Monday (April 8), was said to be the cause of the Brixton rioting during the 80s, due to the policies passed, racial tensions and social divisions during her Conservative reign.
Old and young anti-Thatcher demonstrators gathered in Brixton and other parts of the UK, including Glasgow and Liverpool, for “street parties”, to celebrate the partial end to Thatcherism – as it still lives on today.
To chants of “Maggie Maggie Maggie, dead dead dead,” revellers partied to the sound of pounding drums with their posters, while individuals changed the lettering on the famous Ritzy cinema to “Margaret Thatchers Dead Lol”.
There have been reports of arrests and low level disorder.
Photos have been circulating on Twitter, Instagram and videos have been uploaded to YouTube. Watch one of the clips below.
