Victory! Campaigners up the trees at the Bass Recreation Ground in Derby are coming back down to earth following a Council decision to change road plans. Instead of going through the Park the road will now shave away the verge

The Camp at St.Mary's Churchyard in Southampton has been disbanded after the Church scaled down plans to build business units, apartment blocks etc in the churchyard



All these protest camps have (we think) been issued Possesion Orders and so could be evicted any time soon -
