***** AdvocacyNet News Bulletin 133 March 12, 2008 *****
/The Washington Post/ Features AP's Coverage of the Dale Farm Eviction Crisis March 12, 2008, Dale Farm UK and Washington, DC: In a Washington Post article published on March 9 Iain Guest, Executive Director of The Advocacy Project (AP), called on the British government to prevent the eviction of the Dale Farm Travellers. The article argues that eviction will create a medical and education crisis and undermine the legal protection of Travellers, who are recognized as a racial minority in Britain. "It's more like a battleground than a housing development. Dale Farm lies deep in the English countryside, about 50 miles east of London. You enter through a makeshift barbed-wire gate, driving past gas cylinders that were once stacked as a barricade against invaders and a large banner ("Save Dale Farm") that has seen action outside 10 Downing Street, the home of the British prime minister. Inside, 86 families are steeling themselves for eviction."
