I'm sorry to report that the local people and Rainbow Common Wealth activists who had been running their community centre at the old Meadview Nursery in Littlehampton,
West Sussex, were
forced out of their home by a huge force of riot police today, see here for background:
It's not over yet; they have returned. I'm sorry I couldn't get there myself
and stand beside them. If you can, please go along! Here's are the statements
issued by the Rainbow Common Wealth about what took place. Also some coverage
by my friend and fellow researcher Lisa Sunkmanitu Wakan. Lisa recently fought
alongside over seven hundred other people in the successful defence of Tom
Crawford against his own illegal eviction, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/je-suis-tom.html:
