We are collecting signatures for the ‘Hands off our Barnet! Stop the One Barnet programme!’ petition.

You can download a copy of the petition here – or several copies! – and collect signatures from friends, neighbours, workmates…

We are aiming for 7,000 signatures by November, which will allow us to demand a debate in the Barnet Council chamber on this crucial issue – that’s right, there has never been a full public debate before!

Please let us know of your progress in collecting signatures – email barnetalliance4publicservices@gmail.com. The text of the petition is:

We, residents of Barnet, are alarmed at the council’s plan known as the ONE BARNET PROGRAMME, to hand over our public services to private for-profit companies. We call for an immediate stop to these measures until the issue is put to the electorate in the form of a simple YES or NO referendum on the ONE BARNET PROGRAMME.

On the reverse of the petition sheet is a list of Barnet councillors. Please contact your councillor and ask them where they stand on One Barnet.
