From the Sweets Way campaign: support tomorrow morning if you can: Monday, March 23, 2015, 09:30, Barnet County Court – St Marys Court, Regents Park Rd, London N3 1BQ
Two weeks into a political occupation that has expanded from one to six homes on the Sweets Way Estate in Barnet, occupiers and residents will be going to court to challenge the replacement of perfectly good and truly affordable homes, with yet more luxury new builds.
Following the delivery of court papers, late in the afternoon on Thursday, March 19, residents, ex-residents and supporters of the Sweets Way Resists campaign will be going to Barnet County Court against private property developers Annington Homes on Monday, 23 March, at 10:00am. The campaign aims to challenge the legal processes used by Annington against the estate’s remaining residents, as well as those involved in the political occupation of 60 Sweets Way, during the company’s attempts to bulldoze the estate.
Supporters and families will also be gathering outside of the courts to stand in solidarity with those fighting the social cleansing of Sweets Way on the inside. Families and activists will be available to share their stories with the media.
In the past week of the now-two-week-old occupation, Russell Brand has hosted a ‘sleep-over’ at the Sweets Way social centre , members of the community have been ignored in their attempt to deliver an open letter to James Hopkins, Chief Executive of Annington , and a petition against the estate’s demolition has garnered nearly 50,000 signatures on Change.org . It has also been revealed by various sources that Terra Firma, the private equity company that owns Annington, is tied up in a range of questionable tax affairs and close relationships with high levels of the Conservative Party, bringing a national dimension to this seemingly local story.
