On Tuesday the Beckney Protest Camp in Hockley, Essex (see SchNEWS 224) was served with a possession order and has seven days to clear the site. An appeal is planned. Developers want to build houses by a nature reserve - spending £150,000 on relocating up to two thousand great-crested newts. This despite a similar relocation in Peterborough ending in the deaths of 10,000 of this rare species.

Weird goings on recently include £11,000 worth of damage by militant badgers, a security guard stapling his finger to a piece of wood, one of King Arthur's Knights showing up, and the replacement of a local councillor who failed to turn up at a local meeting with a teddy bear.

People are desperately needed.
