We need people to visit the site and help with paperwork, and people to help put on film nights in their area. Email email@example.com if you can lend a hand.
Hold an info-night in your community
In order to build a strong movement for Traveller rights, people across the country need to be aware and active about the situation at Dale Farm. A great way to make sure this happens in your local community is to hold a film night with films, discussion and/or speakers. We’d be happy to help you organise an info-night in your community- get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out the resources for local groups for leaflets, info-sheets and films.
Friends and supporters of Dale Farm from across the country and from abroad have come to live at Dale Farm to provide around the clock support to the community and resistance to the eviction. If you might be able to come down to be part of this camp, please get in touch, and sign up to the text service.
Sleeping space is available in caravans and residents homes but we encourage you to bring a tent, and you are welcome to sleep over anytime. Please bring a sleeping bag if you can, and a roll mat is highly recommended especially since most of the tent space is on hard ground. We need people to actively resist the eviction, be human rights/legal obervers, coordinate outreach and media and much more.
The welcome pack is available here (in three formats, all versions have the same content):Dale Farm Welcome pdf or Dale Farm Welcome odt or Dale Farm Welcome word doc – if you have trouble opening any of these for any reason, please email email@example.com The welcome packs contain information on Dale Farm and the political context of the current eviction, Camp Constant and what to bring, Traveller history, and legal advice for activists.
Writing to your MP
We need to take urgent action to stop the eviction of hundreds of people from their homes. We have already seen the current government commit significant financial support for the eviction, so we think that lobbying them has quite significant limitations at this point. Our main “ask” of supporters is to come to Camp Constant once it is set up in order to take direct action to stop the eviction, or enable others to do so. However, if you would like to flag up this issue to your MP, there is currently an Early Day Motion (No. 1729) speaking out against evictions of Traveller Sites. Here is some useful information you can use when you write to your MP.
