If you can't make it you can support in another way, we are in desperate need of funds. Please donate!
Dale farm in Essex, a former scrap yard which is now home to 90 Traveller families, is under threat of imminent eviction. To find out more check out the website. The eviction will make 400 people homeless, and will devastate the brilliant and close-knit community at Dale Farm, breaking up families, pulling children from schools, and denying the elderly and sick vital community and health care. Basildon Council and the Coalition government have pledged between them to spend £18million wrecking the lives of Dale Farm families. Legal routes for stopping the eviction are almost exhausted; we need people to help stop the eviction now!
The eviction has been set for 19th Sept and could last over a week, perhaps weeks. The police can raid the site before this date and the more people on site the better protection we can provide and the more chance we have of preventing the cruel and brutal planned eviction of Dale Farm.
Dale farm residents are calling on supporters to come to Dale Farm as far in advance of that date as possible to help them stop the eviction. Residents have invited us to set up a base, dubbed ‘Camp Constant’. Launched in August, 2011, it is a mass gathering of national and international supporters of the Dale Farm community. Activists are supporting the Travellers in defending their homes and community.
As the eviction date looms, we are in constant need of more and more people. There's many different ways of getting involved – we need medics, legal observers, site defenders, cooks, etc.. More people are needed on all fronts.
Please sign up for txt alerts, as we can’t trust the council not to try an early eviction.
