South West England
We can now announce that set-up will begin from around 2pm on Saturday, 31 July. Marquees, tools and construction materials will be arriving on site from Saturday morning so there will be plenty to do. You will be able to camp on the site from Saturday and there will be skeleton facilities (water, basic kitchen) from that time.

Check out http://coalaction.org.uk/ for the updated and re-vamped Coal Action Network website and detailed coal maps of the UK. It is hoped that this website will be a useful resource to anyone taking action – or thinking of taking action – to protect communities, environments and the climate system from coal projects.
The Black Cat, Bath, has sadly been evicted this morning from the Porter Butt building on London Road.
We lost in court this morning, and rather than wait for an eviction order to come through, the landlords came right round the house and barged in with the full support of local police.
Lifted from the Black Cat centre blog [blackcatcentre.blogspot.com]:
"The Black Cat occupied community social centre is currently homed at the
former Porter Butt public house on London Road, Bath, opposite the E$$o
station and next door to Morrisons. We still have a lot of work to do,
cleaning and setting things up - volunteers always appreciated to the level
18 people were arrested and some held for over 24 hours at Ystrad Mynach police station before being charged a with:
An unlawful act with intent to obstruct the railway under the Malicious Damages Act of 1861.
The baliffs, having been served notice that their attempted eviction would be illegal under common and criminal law, failed to show. However, response to the emergency call out was good. It is expected that there will be another attempt in the not too distant future, which will also, of course, resisted.
Thanks to everyone who did respond, and please be ready to respond to future calls.
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.
After many months of planning and preparation the eco village was opened today around 12noon. Come down and visit if you can. Bring supplies as well if you can such as bedding cutlery and tools such as hammers, nail, axes and saws.
