If you can spare the time please come along to a rally outside the Beds.

Please bring a tent, sleeping bag, warm clothes, rollmat, food, to spend
the night on the woodside site ready for possible early morning eviction.
Bring cameras if you can for legal defence purposes. 

Though the eviction may not happen on Thursday morning - it's becoming all
too common now for the bailiffs to be vague about eviction dates to dispel
resistance - we're going there in case it does. If you can't come please
contact Grattan on 01206 523528 who is organising a phone tree for future
eviction alerts.

Hope to see you there!

Some 60 families face eviction on Friday (1 Nov) from >Woodside< caravan
park, at Hatch, near SANDY, in Bedfordshire.
