Activists and Residents from Dale Farm report back from the front line in the antifascist struggle.
19-10-2011 23:40(as far as I'm aware) all previous evictions of sites and protest camps have been by sheriff's officers, bailiffs and climbers, and you only get handed to the police once you're down/off whatever; the cops assist in certain roles, but that's very different from this eviction.
Early this morning riot police and bailiffs stormed the Dale Farm community in a dawn raid. Police violated the court order and used sledgehammers to smash through the walls of a fully legal plot on the site in order to force entry. Human rights observers reported several injuries of residents and supporters from police action as they forced their way onto site.
Police are using tasers on those protesting the eviction.
Residents and supporters remain inside the site, many locked on to blockades and caravans together in order to resist the eviction. Police breached the perimeter to initiate the eviction.
