Dale Farm

A ten-year struggle between British law, international law and basic human rights. New British law states that travellers cannot travel as they have done for thousands of years therefore in the late 80s and early 90s they were encouraged to buy land and settle down like many did. On Dale farm the Travellers bought some land which had a rubbish tip on it and they paid for it to be removed properly and safely according to British law. However after a while they were refused planning permission and was told that it was green belt land and they should have looked in the council offices for the paperwork.

So we have a council who did use the rubbish tip for council waste which is against the law if it is green belt.

On the day of the eviction the police took over and marched in like a military operation and used electric guns Tayers which isn’t allowed in British law.
