We won the battle for Yorkley, but yet to win the war.
An injunction was granted at 3 yesterday and served at 5, the three day siege is over but our guard duty of all gates continues.
This injunction prevents any of the named individuals or their agents from entering the site without our permission, all vehicles and security have been removed from site and are barred from entering without the permission from us. The injunction is part of a wider case against the people who did this. The evidence for the wider case is being heard in ten days time, so we are not out of the woods yet. There is a minor police presence still in the vicinity.
A local millionaire, land grabber and developer called Brian Bennett colluding with a bent solicitor called Richard M Tolson, employed over 20 bailiffs and security, 8 building contractors, 8 local thugs, with 4x4 vehicles, tractors, diggers, buggies, flat bed, with fencing, gate posts and portacabin to illegally enter the land we have been in possession of for the last 2 years. They attempted an forced illegal eviction with massive resources behind them and they lost.
After being woken up at 5am Monday to an invading force, we resisted and barricaded them in, negotiated to get them to leave our compound, we escorted them to the front gate where we secured the gate locking their vehicles in and them out. This stand off lasted for over 50 hours with teams manning 5 positions over the whole site, three gates and two bases, with people awake sleeping in shifts all through the night.
The support and numbers of people we had come down was awesome! Thank you to everyone for all your sacrifices, time, donations of food and water.
We still asking need your support in whatever way feel you can as they may make attempts to appeal the judges decision when the full case with the injunction is heard on the 7th July.
We have a press release out to all media, we have a tweet feed, our web page, email address and crowd fund.

"Capitalism is institutionalised bribery."
"The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic poison which alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung
Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that shall not be made known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27
Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
