success at Derby and Southampton

Bass Rec victory (Derby)

Victory for the Derby Bass Rec protestors who have started coming down from the treetops following a council decision to change the road plans, saving the Recreation Ground and instead shaving away the verge. Fun days and a Planning for Real exercise were held.

St Mary's Churchyard (Southampton)

St Mary's Churchyard campers in Southampton have disbanded the camp as the Church have scaled down their plans and gone back to the drawing board. It' ll be 6 months before they put in the planning application, and they'll talk with campaigners at the end of this month. The camp had also been attacked one night by organised thugs not from the local area, who trashed tents, badly bruised someone's back and broke someone else's finger. Locals are completely supportive, and the camp will set up again if needed.
