Dale Farm Irish Travellers in last bid to save their homes – Wickford

Basildon Council is set to spend over 18 million pounds to evict the largest Irish Travellers community at Dale Farm in the UK. Up to 90 families with children will lose their home. One of the arguments used is that the travellers site is on a green belt field. However, the Travellers say that the land has not been a green area since 1950 and that in fact they built their homes on a registered scrapyard. As it is approaching the 19th September, the date set for their eviction, the Travellers went to Wickford to demonstrate hoping that their voice will be heard, in one of their last bid to save their home. Wickford, Essex, 10/09/2011
