Dale Farm in Essex is the UK’s largest Travellers community, consisting of nearly a hundred plots and over a thousand residents. Across the UK many sites have been closed and others evicted and travellers forcibly moved on. This is only part of the marginalisation and prejudice Travellers face, this is not just about homes but also the criminalisation of a community and a way of life . Basildon council wants to spend over £13 million evicting 52 plots of land and 150 families from Dale Farm making hundreds of people homeless. Let’s organise in solidarity with the residents of Dale Farm to save these homes and prevent the largest eviction in recent UK history.
