At about 8pm on Wednesday, private security attacked two occupiers from Sweetstopia, who were wheeling a shopping trolly across the estate.

None of us ever wanted our campaign to protect our homes to come to this, but those with money have clearly decided that the only way to protect their investment, is through violence. Wednesday a new security firm, Dorman, arrived on site, and within hours had sparked the first outbreak of violence in six months of peaceful campaigning.

After a young man and woman from the Sweetstopia occupation were violently wrestled to the ground by security guards without cause, dozens of occupiers came to their defence. Dorman security began to attack and detain them (without having the legal authority to do so), closing a group in behind the temporary Heras fencing placed around many of the empty houses on the estate.

We called the police, who arrived and moderated between us and Dorman, but not before one of the occupiers was physically beaten by security, leaving him with a bleeding head injury and was eventually sent to hospital.

Even after the police left, Dorman again assaulted more occupiers until we called the police once again.

During the attacks, Dorman guards covered up, shone lights at, and threw away cameras and phones that were filming their brutality. None of the security had badges on display either, which is illegal.

BUT WE MANAGED TO FILM THEIR ILLEGAL VIOLENCE!

Call Dorman NOW and demand that their staff at Sweets Way are IMMEDIATELY FIRED.

Call them on 0208 951 4909 or 07957 360 185.

  2. Hello
    I have written a basic petition on this, which I humbly present to you in the hope you like. I am happy to publish this myself, although we would need to agree on which site is best (38 Degrees, Care2, etc).

    Please let me know if this is good enough and/or of use to you.

    Petition Idea:
    On the evening of 2 September 2015, security guards from Dorman attacked two occupiers in Sweetopia, the Sweets Way resistance group. In six months of peaceful protest, this is the first act of violence; performed by a firm that had only been on site for a few hours.

    Additionally, the guards were not displaying any identification, which is illegal. They also attempted to prevent their violent and unprovoked actions from being filmed, but they failed.

    This petition calls for the security guards who committed this vicious assault to be fired immediately. We call on Dorman to also remove themselves from Sweets Way.

  4. How’s this? Please fact checked and I will publish as soon as:

    Sweets Way is a housing estate in Barnet, N20, whose residence are presently under threat of eviction by Annington Homes and Barnet Homes, in yet another action of social cleansing in London. The site is presently being occupied; as their webstie puts it so well; ‘at a time when residents are being told there are no truly affordable homes left in Barnet, Annington should not be allowed to bulldoze our homes to make way for luxury flats!’

    This petition calls for the security guards who committed this vicious assault on the peaceful activists of Sweets Way to be fired immediately. We call on Dorman to also remove themselves from Sweets Way; or if not, for Barnet Council to remove them.
