Travellers and campaigners are planning a protest march to Dale Farm against the planned eviction of the illegal site.Good planning, chaps! Because…
The demo from Wickford train station to the site, on September 10, could be too late because Basildon Council has revealed it will evict the families any time from midnight on August 31.SNORK!
According to organisers’ websites, if the eviction begins before the planned demonstration there will be an immediate call for people to rally at the site and a protest camp, called Camp Constant.And how many can just drop what they are doing and leave for Essex? I mean, won’t they have trouble getting time off their jobs…?
Protesters are busy setting up defences in a bid to stave off the bailiffs.Translation: ‘We’ve watched ‘Lord Of The Rings’, we know how a siege is conducted!’…
The website adds: “We’ve got loads to do in terms of setting up Camp Constant.
Everything from putting in the compost loos, to site defence building.”
I think you’ll find the orcs were a pushover, compared to Essex bailiffs!
Basildon Council’s plan to cut off electricity and water to the site during the clearance could be a death knell for those who rely on electrical medical equipment, according to Grattan Puxon of the Gypsy Council.Haven’t you heard of batteries, Gratton?
He spoke of one man who uses a nebuliser 24 hours a day to allow him to breathe.
“If they switch off electricity as they have stated, it will kill him.”
