SAVE DALE FARM

The date for the £18 million pound eviction of Dale Farm, a former scrapyard which is now home to 90 families, has been revealed to be Monday September 19.
Residents are calling on supporters to come to help them stop the eviction. They are also calling for legal observers and human rights monitors to come down to act as witnesses. Dale Farm is only a half-hour by train from London Liverpool Street station. The council has threatened to close roads in advance, so it is recommended that people come as many days before the eviction as possible. Sleeping space in homes is available, but please bring a tent if you can.
On September 19 Basildon council and the coalition government, who are financing this, will face a moral challenge to explain to thousands of people and the world’s assembled media why they are choosing to make over 100 children homeless and remove them from their schools.

If you do go down there to help out make sure you lock your car and keep your hand on your wallet. And don't stand still for too long or you'll be covered in Tarmac and then charged for it.

Racists don't seem to do humour or originality.

oh man, it's too easy...

how come you're standing up for a minority people who have arguably taken land that wasn't theirs and are now surrounded by other people who just want them 'removed' and see them as less than human?

Sounds a but like somewhere else eh Derek? eh? know what I mean, say no more, my boy...

So, you're supporting some people who have taken some land without regard to the law, refuse to return the land, regularly flout the accepted laws of the majority, are surrounded by people who see them as a despised minority and simply want to 'get rid' of them?

mmm, sound like somewhere else you can think of where you have a very different opinion?
