Info from the Dale Farm Solidarity campaign, Wednesday 31st August:
A last ditch effort to stop the eviction at the High Courts has just been turned down. This means that anytime after midnight tonight, Dale Farm could face the bulldozers. Dale Farm residents are defiant, refusing to leave their homes, and supporters from the UK and across Europe are standing with them.
An eviction attempt is expected anytime in September. Please come to Camp Constant at Dale Farm to spend some nights here and sign up to the sms eviction alert system. Dale Farm is only 30 minutes by train from London Liverpool Street Station. The atmosphere at Dale Farm is inspiring -- for some video of residents and supporters celebrating and learning together, see here.
This weekend at Dale Farm:
On Saturday, Sept 3rd, noon: Jewish Solidarity visit -- it's important that cultures with a shared history of oppression support each other when our fundamental human rights face being breached. That is why this Saturday, Jewish rabbis, citizens and activists will be on a special blockade in support of residents at Dale Farm.
There is a workshop, on Sunday Sept. 4th, 2pm: Freedom of Movement and the Right to Stay! This is the rallying cry for Roma, Gypsies and Travellers and of migrants throughout the world. A common thread of persecution, of forbidden lands, eviction and deportation connect the struggles for migrant rights and the rights of Gypsies and Travellers. These realities have met dramatically in the crack-down and deportations of Roma people from France and Italy. Come to the Workshop organised by No One Is Illegal and London No Borders including a speaker who is an activist in Amnesty International's campaign against the persecution of Roma in Europe.
TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE DEMO: Sat, 10th Sept, 1pm, see here for more information and email: email@example.com to add your group’s support to the list.
