SAY NO to the UK's largest Eviction of Travellers - Signatures

If the Basildon eviction goes smoothly and Eric Pickles is emboldened by that to turf Travellers out of their homes we could see things getting much worse," says Acton. "That's why the battle of Basildon has to be fought to the last moment and the eviction has to be made as expensive as possible. If Basildon rolls over, the Tories will come back to the other sites where Travellers have been living legally for years." (Thomas Acton, Professor of Romani Studies, University of Greenwich, The Guardian 25 March 2011)
