The public date of the eviction is the week of the 19th September, but we still need supporters at Dale Farm. We have received unconfirmed reports that part of the eviction operation may start on Monday the 12th, and so the more people on site the better. Please be ready to come to Dale Farm in the morning, just in case — you’ll receive a txt if you’ve signed up to txt alerts at https://smsalerts.tachanka.org/dalefarm/
Residents believe that the bailiffs and the police may attempt some sort of operation early Monday morning. This is a very stressful time for a lot of the residents- they are being made homeless by their own council. They need our support.
If you are able to come down Monday, please do. If not, come down as soon as possible. The police and bailiffs may try to stop people from coming on site, so be ready to find ways to get on- it’s a big site and should be possible.
We have also received intelligence that the bulk of the police operation will start with a briefing on Sunday the 18th to prepare for the 19th, and that the police operation is being run out of Boreham police station. The operation is planned to last one week, but officers have been asked to block 10 days off just in case. The bailiffs are believed to be running their operation out of Basildon. The council has said they will be cutting off electricity to Dale Farm on the 19th, but we have had reliable information that in order to interfere with our ability to get information out in advance, that they are considering cutting off power from the 16th.
