Woodside Park Roma eviction (Hatch, Mid-Beds)


A group of Roma gypsies are facing eviction from a caravan site they own at Hatch in Bedfordshire. The council are spending a whooping 230,000 on evictions, which would more than pay for the modifications required for the site to get planning permission. This is not an isolated example, Romas have repeatedly been subject to this sort of abuse in this country.

There's a rally and barbecue against the intended closure of the caravan park -

meet 11am, Tuesday 4th Sept at the site
