Squatter's rights.

The Dale Farm evictions are the final stages of a process begun in the Eighteenth century, to separate people from land.

In this history book, the destruction of the "squatters" is shown to be ethnic cleansing to justify taking land from the poor to give to the rich.

Where are the last remnants of a group that was wiped out to justify the enclosures?
At Dale Farm.
Were the original Enclosures legal?
Is the desperate desire to eradicate any groups of free moving people necessary to ensure nobody is in a position to question modern land ownership?
Just read these pages and ask where the squatters are now.
