We lost the court case on June 9th and have been on 'aruga red alert!!' ever since - Treehouses walkways and tree lock ons are up - Its the waiting game - we are very worried about the probability of eviction in Glastonbury week - numbers are low and activists are urgently needed - have your busman's holiday in sunny (ha ha) north wales!!!

seriously folks... we've now got the legal aid forms through for the police lock-on assault at our last eviction - however chief inspector Roberts has said that they are happy with their use of "reasonable force" AND ARE PREPARED TO DO IT AGAIN... what will it be this time - Plod lumbering up the trees to pressure-point us off?? they think they can get away with it and they are probably right... especially if this campaign remains small and neglected - Obviously this has implications for protests round the country - if other police forces think they can save a couple of grand by torturing us out rather than using cutting gear - then they will.

(Remember last time they didnt have any cutting gear with them. They were prepared to go through different levels of pain, ie if we hadnt given in at the arm twisting stage then a karate chop to the shoulder blade was next)

Stop it happening up here and hence nationwide.
