HUNTINGTON EVICTION ALERT

Activists at Huntington Lane in Shropshire are readying themselves to defend the anti-coal action camp from eviction. Following last week’s police and bailiff raid on a vacant part of the site, National Eviction Team (NET) goons have been lurking around the main camp (see SchNEWS 743).

Campers are now on high alert and are battening down the hatches in preparation for an eviction attempt. Defences already set up include a wooden ‘fort’, tunnels, tree houses, nets and aerial walkways. Campaigners have put a call out for bodies to get down there to man them.

For information on how you can help, ring the site phone on 07503 583419 or 07727 295232.
