There will be an illegal eviction attempt on the Bristol Eco Village tomorrow morning at about 11, just 5 days after site was set up. This will be resisted. We need as many people as possible down there to witness the illegal attempt and help resist. For practical reasons there must be no violence or even abusive behaviour.

Some members of the Liverpol Social Forum/Liverpool Social Centre don't think that the BNP are very important, or a threat to our communities.
Who gives a fuck about the BNP? Apparently not the social centre, dub comes first.

The Black Wood Solidarity Camp packed up the night before last and left the site of UK Coal’s new mine at Blair Farm, in Fife. The camp occupied the site for a week and a half to show UK Coal and other mine operators that no new mine or coal infrastructure is safe and out of reach of protesters.
Hours after the Black Wood Solidarity Camp successfully pushed back its eviction hearing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court this afternoon, members of the National Eviction Team including Martin Leyshon, Head of Resources, visited the site to document its defences and presumably to begin the process of evicting the camp.
This morning a sheriff officer from Dunfermline Sheriff Court handed the newly-established Black Wood Solidarity Camp its eviction summons, with notice to appear in court on Monday morning. Despite not making an appearance yet at the site, it is believed that UK Coal representatives met with Fife police on Monday to discuss how to deal with the occupation.

The Metropolitan Police have been forced to admit that the raid on the G20 convergence centre last April 2009 were illegal.
They have been forced to pay compensation to the falsely arrested but still refuse to apologise.
It’s day three of the occupation of Black Wood, a designated wildlife site and ancient woodland, as campaigners attempt to stop UK Coal from open cast mining 720,000 tonnes of coal from their Blair House site in Fife. The woodland was occupied last Sunday as 25 activists blocked and barricaded the access road using a scaffolding tripod, and took to the trees putting up nets, platforms and treehouses.
