Sheffield Street Tree Fellings - Pingle Road, Dobcroft School Night Attacks!

Local / Sheffield Feb 28, 2018 - 04:21 AM GMT

By: N_Walayat

Local

Sheffield tree fellings resumed this week after a 4 week pause following the Mayhem on Meersbrook Park Road on the 22nd of January 2018. Whilst the police have been taking a heavy handed attitude towards the protestors this week. It's what's happening elsewhere that has children weeping on their way to School as they walk past trees that have been attacked and mutilated during the night, literally drive by fellings, leaving behind butchered trees as is the case on Pingle Road at the end of which sits Dobcroft Infants and Junior School.


Sheffield Street Tree Fellings - Pingle Road, Dobcroft School Night Fellings

So after a 4 week break the felling of mostly healthy Sheffield street trees resumed on Monday 26th Feb, as streets such as Meersbrook Park Road. Thornsett Road and Chatsworth Road are being flooded with police and SIA security personnel tasked with ejecting any peaceful protestors from the cordoned off zones around trees ear marked for destruction.

Therefore as was the case a few weeks ago, the protestors are now even more outnumbered by SIA security and police then in January.

Heavy Police and Security Presence at Sheffield Street Tree Felling Protests 2018

Having attended tree protest sites such as at Meersbrook Park Road over a number of days this year, there definitely was a growing bad atmosphere brewing as the Arb's increasingly were becoming emboldened by the heavy police presence to become abusive towards protestors and bystanders alike such as swearing, threatening, pushing and shuving and even reports of spitting in the face of protestors.

All of which is had now been preceded by a concerted establishment propaganda campaign in attempts at frightening off protestors from attending the resumption of street felling, mayhem on which was the catalyst for the initial suspension of street tree fellings on the 22nd of January as the following video illustrates of a tree protestor being allegedly repeatedly assaulted by SIA security:

The full spectrum of establishment propaganda involves mainstream broadcast local media repeating reports of a 'phantom' broken wrists of an SIA security without providing any details. Whilst the only evidence of violence on the day in question is as the above video shows a protestor being punched at least 5 times, including an upper cut to the head. Maybe that is the origins of the 'phantom' broken wrist reporting?

Continuing with threats are a string of council headed legal correspondence sent to prominent campaigners warning of costly court actions against named protestors and also handing out the same legal threats to people at the felling sites this week, though apparently in many cases without accompanying evidence that matches the allegations being made, with the police earlier issuing statements warning of taking a heavy handed attitude towards protestors in support of SIA security personnel in their use of force against protestors that they have been implementing resulting in numerous arrests and injured protestors.

A message that had been iterated across local media including the BBC's Toby Foster radio show which featured Assistant Chief Constable David Hartley "Our role here is to be really really independent. So when we look at what is the evidence coming from the scene, we make a judgement and we take all legal advice around that, what is reasonable force, there's an injunction in place. SIA trained security, we work with those routinely. As you will well know in the nighttime economy you have SIA trained staff. They have to be fit and proper and they're trained around their role so we look at that and we make an assessment around is what they're doing reasonable, is it reasonable force within the bounds of the injunction"

Sheffield's peaceful tree protestors are definitely facing their darkest hour as the establishment has decided that the tree protests will be brought to an abrupt end through use of force. All this whilst Sheffield's Weston Park Museum celebrates 200 years of protests in Sheffield.

Meanwhile attention is increasingly being focused towards how to hold the Labour controlled city council to account at the May 2018 local elections for its deployment of force on the streets of Sheffield:

Will The Bunny / Beast from the East Halt Street Tree Fellings?

The 'Beast from the East' weather pattern that the forecasters have been warning off for a good 4 days failed to hit Monday, that saw just a few snow flurries of mostly powdery snow. Similarly Tuesday was mostly clear however, evening snow fall could bring Sheffield tree fellings to an abrupt halt Wednesday and likely for the remainder of this week, find out why in this video:
