Dale Farm eviction today at Basildon, Essex of Irish travellers

Today is the day the Irish travellers settled on Dale farm, Essex are to be evicted by the Basildon Council.  This is to be an expensive project – up to £18 million to be spent on the eviction itself.

These travellers are Ethnic Irish travellers and have been living on the green belt site for over 10 years, knowing all the time that they were wrongfully living there.  They lost their battle a few weeks ago to stay on the site and have been refusing to go.

Many celebrities are talking about how it is right, but these people do not have to live on the doorstep of this site and the people on it.  Local people have been complaining about them, and surely they are the ones we should be listening to.  They are supposed messy and bad neighbours.

There are many activists on site who are talking about giving up their lives in support of this campaign. 

Everyone has been talking about spending the £18 million on re-homing them, but this would then be blackmail, as they would be getting free homes for their fight, whtn they dont even pay council tax or other bills.

The story goes on today…
