Campaigners have staged an anti-eviction protest at the gates of Dale Farm traveller camp.Let’s have a look at the clowns, shall we?
Yves Cabannes, a professor at the University of London and chairman of the UN advisory group on forced evictions congratulated the traveller families on continuing to live illegally at Dale Farm in the face of the council’s threat to remove them by force.I guess he isn’t a professor of law?
Ah, it seems his ‘expertise’ is in ‘urban and municipal governance’. How lucky Dale Farm is, to have such a towering intellect on their side…
He said: “A forced eviction is the wrong way to go about things. If Dale Farm is not suitable, that is not the responsibility of the people.It’s ‘not the responsibility of the people’ who are breaking the law, but the responsibility of the society that builds that law for its people.
“It is for the Government to deliver what it is expected to deliver, which is proper pitches or places for them to settle.”
Wow! I think he just uttered a rallying call to a whole host of freaks and weirdos and anarchists and…
Oh. They’re already here:
Protesters in camper vans, from as far away as Croatia, Kosovo, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Scotland and Wales arrived to demonstrate on what had been declared World Zero Evictions Day.I wonder if they’ve all gone, or if they’ll stick around for the dénouement?
