"Hi we are Gypsies living in Bedfordshire. We are on a private site owned by 27 seperate families. We are battling with the local council for the right to live here. The council are trying to have us removed. They are having a meeting on the 12th of this month (July). they plan to spend 180 thousand pounds of the tax payers money to a private firm to evict us. We would appreciate any support you can give us ." (sent 9 July 2001, this is in the UK - FOC)
I'm writing to say that we lost and the council have got the money they requested, but we have challenged them to the high court, if you have any help or advice for us please get in contact with us as we are all feeling down at the moment. Sincerely all the residents of Hatch. 12 July 2001.
(FOC) Please write in support immediately! Bedfordshire Email addresses are found here. The Bedfordshire web site can be found here. Please contact all government personnel, and perhaps Prime Minister Tony Blair himself, and inundate them with requests for reasonableness on this issue and a reversal of this action. (please make suggestions to the webmaster for how to suggest help to them)
(FOC) I would suggest writing to these - immediately:
Request the religious organizations to help on humanitarian grounds.
I also suggest that you contact Bedford College and try to get their support.
Anyone with information please contact me.
