Dear All, I wish to enclose a statement from the Travellers' Solidarity Network as it be the first anniversary since the evictions of the Pavees and British Roma community from Dale Farm. Kind regards Austin Harney, Chair of CRAIC Fighting the Cuts. Just one week from today, we're 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 us to expose the role the government plays in attacking Travellers' rights and criminalising entire communities. Friday 19th October, 1pm at Victoria Station, London Mass Action - Dale Farm Anniversary - Evict the Deparment for Communities and Local Government! One Year Ago, at dawn on 19 October 2011, hundreds of riot police and bailiffs 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!
