Laing site occupied in support of Gorse Wood (Essex)

Last Friday a Laing building site in Surrey was occupied in solidarity with protestors who are fighting eviction at the Gorsewood road protest camp in Essex. Grateful workers enjoyed a break from building a massive complex for Pfizer - the makers of viagra. Maybe that's why people found it so easy to get up a massive crane to unfurl a banner saying 'more roads? Don't even try it!' Laing were targeted as they are part of the consortium that is building the six lane motorway through the Essex countryside. 20 days into the eviction and 5 people are still down the tunnels.
