Dalkeith Protest - Thursday Update

Dalkeith Eviction 5

The occupation of Dalkeith Country Park continues.

No arrests on Thursday!

Thursday 19 January 2006, little was accomplished by the eviction team today. The three who have been in tunnels at Middle Site since Monday still remain. With enough food and supplies to carry them though at least another week underground, spirits remain high that they can seriously delay attempts to feel trees on Middle Site. The eviction team's main success for the day was the eviction of an unoccupied site. It is likely that Friday they will begin work at the Bottom Site, however this is by far the protesters' stronghold and should prove a lengthy eviction process.

People on site are calling for more supporters to join them in the trees. There is still time, and the road is still far from being built!
