19 October 2012
On the 19th October the Traveller Solidarity Network are taking action in solidarity with the families of Dale Farm, and Traveller families across the country who face racism and state violence wherever they go.
Join them to expose the role the government plays in attacking Traveller's rights and criminalising entire communities.
Friday 19th October at 1pm, Victoria Station, London Mass Action - Dale Farm Anniversary - Evict the Department for Communities and Local Government!
One year ago at dawn on 19th October 2011, hundreds of riot police and baliffs stormed the Dale Farm Traveller community to carry out one of the largest and most brutal evictions in UK history.
Eric Pickles Department for Communities and Local Government funded the Dale Farm eviction to the tune of £1.2 million. They are also leading the wholesale attack on Gypsy and Traveller rights, abolishing local government targets for the provision of sites and strengthening powers to evict through the Localism Act.
It is time to fight back! Join the Traveller Solidarity Network's mass action to evict the Department for Communities and Local Government - the eviction to end all evictions!
