Skip to comments.Anarchists hijack the travellers' last stand: Fears of bloody confrontation
Posted on 08/31/2011 3:25:15 PM PDT by dynachrome
Hundreds of anarchists and student protesters are plotting to join the battle against the bulldozing of Europes largest illegal traveller camp. Police fear bloody confrontations with bailiffs and officers as outsiders attempt to turn the protest into a politically motivated riot. About 50 anarchists have already joined the 1,000 travellers at Dale Farm and Basildon District Council has spent ten years trying to remove around 500 travellers from Dale Farm after they settled beside dozens of legal plots. It ended up in the Court of Appeal last year when 80 families on 52 plots were ordered to leave. The council issued a 28-day notice to leave the camp which expired at midnight last night. It said it would be checking compliance in the coming days. But police insiders fear that when council-appointed bailiffs arrive it will either trigger

Free land, no rules, squat where you want.
Free the Tinkers...
So scumbags helping GYPSIES, is what I’m thinking...
Fire a couple dozen cannisters of tear gas in ... nothing makes a libtard cry, like a little exposure to real life. Why risk having a working, and contributing member of society being injured.
Another plus side, is that the ‘Gypsies’ (Travelers ... gemmme a break) will likely never get the smell of tear gas our of their ‘caravan’ or campers (minus a toilet).
Hit’em where they live, literally. And yet another side benefit - the Gypsies will have the Anarchists to thank for the damage done to their ‘homes’. We can let the Gypsies thank the Anarchists for their help, in a manner that even a libtard can understand.
They love confrontation, these anarchists
“Travelers”? Is that a euphemism for illegal Muslim aliens?
The anarchists will intitiate a violent confrontation and flee, leaving the gypsies to bear the brunt.
Apparently Irish gypsies.
Oh, so "travelers" are Gypsies--and "Gypsy" must now be politically incorrect--that figures.
Gypsies or Romany. Wandering “tribes”.
The history is a tad convoluted but way back when the wealthy landowners in Britain turned to sheep and turned out the people from the land they'd been planting as tenants for centuries.
The action is considered one of the great crimes of history, and it's why you have so terribly many Americans who are still POd at nobles and England's landed gentry.
Fortunately for SOME, but not all, the folks who were literally tossed out of their cottages into the roads ran into several groups of REAL GYPSIES from Europe who'd just arrived.
The UK peasantry proved as clever as the Gypsies and adopted the complete Romnachal Culture, but they didn't adopt Romany ~ nor did they all become Catholics.
In later years the UK crowd began to think of it as tacky that some people should be allowed to live on the roads. They prevailed on the government to suppress this incessant wandering ~ take away their wagons, destroy their camps, force modern ways on these folks.
The luckiest Travelers got to America in early times. They proved invaluable in navigating the raw frontier and took hundreds of thousands of immigrants to new homes all over the continent. Obviously there were some Roma also involved ~ but they were better suited to more technologically advanced and wealthier neighborhoods ~ they came to dominant the repair of pots and pans (another poster noted "tinkers" who are more correctly itinerate repairmen ~ the pots and pans guys ~ Calderon ~ were also into inexpensive handmade jewelry.).
Except for a few modern Travelers finding America more welcoming, the old timers assimilated to the degree that their descendants have no idea what it was they were up to. Bill Clinton is such a person.
Travelers are ethnically identical to the Scots, Irish and English populations.
You can usually tell the difference by checking for a tan.
Travelers or “Irish Travelers” are similar to Gypsies but different.
No, gypsie thieves.
Actually Travelers has a distinct meaning from Gypsies. Travelers are not of Romany stock, though they have adopted a similar life-style. I seem to recall that many, if not most, Travelers in the British Isles are ethnically Irish.
What are commonly referred to as simply Travelers in the UK today are really 2 distinct ethnic groups. The Romany Gypsies and the Irish Travelers (Tinkers).
Time to thin the herds.
Scots, English and Irish ~ probably even some Welsh Travelers.
