Frestonia was the name adopted by the residents of Freston Road, London W11, when they attempted to secede from the United Kingdom in 1977 to form the Free and Independent Republic of Frestonia.
Many residents eventually set up a housing co-op in negotiation with Notting Hill Housing Trust, and included artists, musicians, writers, actors and activists.
Actor David Rappaport was the Frestonia Foreign Minister while playwright Heathcote Williams served as Ambassador to the United Kingdom.Attribution:
