The Wilderness centre evicted
This morning at 5am (19th April) the bailiffs and police numbering over 60 evicted the residents of the site. The barricades were up but no one had been up the tree houses for the night. The residents were given time to remove what possessions were left and the whole thing was over by 9am. The eviction was characterised by the huge police presence out numbering the occupiers by about 5 to 1, the police having prevented a breach of the peace continued to assist the bailiffs by carrying wood, boards and enjoying the beautifully spring morning laughing joking while the evil squatters retreated to their tents in the forest. The site now has 24 hours security with attack dogs.
Protect the wilderness will continue to campaign against the massive corruption and land grabs in the forest of dean and further afield. The achievements of the group will not be forgotten, the beauty and peace contained in the experiences of all who have been there will live on, in the past, now and in the future. The fight continues, resistance is fertile.
The mood is stoic, this type of action will come to an end, but the momentum we have created will carry us forward to the next field to be reclaimed.
The group now are concerned with the plants in the green house, in the ground and the chickens, who are the un witting victims of this squabble between human and bureaucratic machine. Although the chickens and the plants are making a stand, and so far have resisted eviction.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Protect the Wilderness, we love you all.
