More South London Blogs

A couple of new (to me) South London blogs.

Free South London - move over Wolfy Smith and the Tooting Popular Front, Wolfgang Moneypenny has seemingly launched the campaign for transpontine independence via his 'FreeSouthLondon Anarcho-Situationist Commune'. Yes there's even a new flag. Some entertaining reflections on his childhood too, like his 1995 memories of being a Man. Utd fan at Crystal Palace on the night of the famous Eric Cantona 'kung fu' incident. How he squares his South London pride with supporting United you will have to read for yourself.

Southwark Notes is dedicated to the critique of gentrification around the Elephant & Castle and elsewhere in Southwark. Lots of information and some interesting historical material, particularly Jam Tomorrow: Some history and notes on the regeneration and gentrification of North Southwark + Bermondsey.

Transpontine - such a beautiful word! And for those of us who love the South London symbol that is the Elephant& the Castle, I must second the opinion that Southwark Notes is brilliant.

Revolutionary Love,
