London: Noise demo in solidarity with the Sweets Way prisoners this Saturday – cancelled

Update from Sweets Way Resists 15/10/15: “We can announce that today the 2 protesters were granted bail, and they retain their anonymity! We will therefore not be attending HMP Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday…”

Let’s make some noise for our friends and defenders of the Sweets Way Estate!

During the evictions on the Sweets Way Estate 19 people were arrested. 16 of those were in defence of Mostafa, the last remaining tenant. Despite being a passive resistance, they were arrested for obstructing the high court enforcers. We all believe these arrests were unjust, and 2 of the arrestees have asserted their right to remain anonymous. As a result, the state has incarcerated them, holding them on remand while the police take their time investigating their identities.

To remain anonymous is a bold move, and we need to show our support for our friends. So we call for a salute to them and other political prisoners inside HMP Wormwood Scrubs at 1pm next Saturday.

Bring pots, pans, anything you can think of to make noise and let them know that we are doing this for them! Banners as well for those who will get to see us outside.

We will be attempting to organise some transport there, hopefully we will have a couple of vans going. Please contact us if you would like to come and need a lift, or if you have a van/can drive.

Greysweatshirt and Blackhood (their assumed names for court registers) will be back in court on Thursday the 15th at 10am. Should they be granted bail we will use this event (Saturday 1pm) to hold a celebration action at one of our protest sites, so please keep the time free and we will update people as the time draws nearer :)

Please spread this far and wide, let’s really show these guys the same support that they showed Sweets Way!

Details: 1pm, Saturday 17th October, Wormwood Scrubs, Du Cane Road, W12 0AE
