On 4th July 2011, some 90 families at Dale Farm, the UK's largest Traveller community, were hand-delivered a final notice of eviction giving families until midnight on August 31 to abandon their homes, or face their entire community being bulldozed. The central government and Basildon Council have set aside over £18m for the eviction battle that could last three weeks. It will be the biggest clearance of its kind involving the ploughing up of 54 separate plots created on a former scrap-yard purchased by the Travellers ten years ago.

Resisting Dale Farm eviction

abstract

On 4th July 2011, some 90 families at Dale Farm, the UK's largest Traveller community, were hand-delivered a final notice of eviction giving families until midnight on August 31 to abandon their homes, or face their entire community being bulldozed. The central government and Basildon Council have set aside over £18m for the eviction battle that could last three weeks. It will be the biggest clearance of its kind involving the ploughing up of 54 separate plots created on a former scrap-yard purchased by the Travellers ten years ago.

Supporters are /en/2011/07/481926.html urgently needed to help the community resist the eviction. Come to the camp for one of the http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/activity/activity weekends any Saturday between now and the end of August, and join http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/massive-call-out-for-action-28-day-eviction-notices-served/ Camp Constant from 27 August.
