Protestors NOT evicted at Linslade. The protestors retreated under the cover of darkness as a surprise tactic against the Counci

15.02.2005

Bucks Council arrived this morning with the heavy mob at Linslade to murder half a dozen more ancient trees. Hundreds of security and police, some on horses, as well as professional climbing baliffs, accompanied the Council goons to evict protestors from the six treehouses.

However the murderous councillors were left with egg on their faces when it emerged that there was nobody in the trees to evict. The protestors had retreated under the cover of darkness as a surprise tactic against the council, who had already paid for police, balliffs, security and climbers.

Nothing was to be gained by fighting a pitched battle on this day. These trees were doomed but the road is far from built and the battle goes on.

Local protestors were on the verge to show their opposition to the destruction. There were no arrests, but the trees are gone and a bit of us has gone with them.

Unlike the trees we are free to fight another day.
