Sweets Way Housing Estate Evictions LondonAdd to Lightbox Download
Housing activists take refuge on a rooftop from bailiffs trying to evict them from the Sweets Way housing estate on 23rd September 2015 in London, United Kingdom. A group of housing activists calling for better social housing provision in London had occupied some of the properties on the 142-home estate in Whetstone, in some cases refurbishing properties intentionally destroyed by the legal owners following eviction of the original residents, in order to try to prevent the eviction of the last resident on the estate and the planned demolition and redevelopment of the entire estate by Barnet Council and Annington Property Ltd.
