Basildon Council is trying to force Travellers it evicted from the Dale Farm site in Essex to pay £4.3 million to pay for their own eviction.
It evicted around 100 families from the site in 2011. Many have since been living on a nearby roadside as they have nowhere else to go.
Travellers and their supporters have begun a petition against the council’s demand for money. Sign it at chn.ge/YDpqQQ
Activists across Europe were set to mark Roma Nation Day on Sunday of this week. In London there is a family event at Kensington Gardens from 12 noon which will be followed by delivering letters of protest to nearby embassies.
