Travellers join 30 June action

Issue No. 2258

Travellers from Dale Farm, and their supporters, planned to protest on Thursday of this week in Basildon, Essex.

The local council is debating adding £1.2 million to the fund to evict them. The total already stands at around £20 million.

People from the local settled community are backing the travellers. Dale Farm is the largest Traveller site in Britain—and the people who live there own the land. Dale Farm activists said the protest was part of those taking place on 30 June in support of the public sector.

Protest 6.30pm at the Basildon Centre. Go to
