Truth & Lies - Why Dale Farm Matters

Those of us who care about justice should care about the nearly 90 families facing eviction at Dale Farm, this documentary intends to prove why that is the case.

Dale Farm

(CRAYS HILL, Essex UK) - In an article last week, I explained how Dale Farm’s residents are Irish Travelers, many identify them as Gypsies; some are people who do not fit neatly into the brainwashed consumer culture. To the contrary they are a sort of people that are impossible to tame. This trait and their Irish roots attracts me to them.

The Irish traveler community of Dale Farm in England are facing a forced eviction, they are also facing a racist system that falsely claims that the residents of Dale Farm are flouting the law.

I love free spirits, I am myself a free spirit, so I relate to anyone who would rather die with self-respect and honour rather than capitulate to the tyrants and their minions and live a domesticated, capitalistic, consumer life.

That is a lie, and the truth will be set out in the full documentary set to be released on October 1, 2011.

I agree with Martin Luther King Jr. who all too rightly said: "Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere."

Those of us who care about justice should care about the nearly 90 families facing eviction at Dale Farm, this documentary intends to prove why that is the case. TJP - Ken O'Keefe

Your dishonesty shows in the fact that you are posting pictures that have nothing to do with Dale Farm and claiming it's in fact Dale Farm.

Will you support me if I want to illegally build an extension on my house? I seriously doubt it. So why are you supporting the criminal actions of the travellers?

Editor: Come on Ron, it is obvious that Ken showed footage of Hawaii and Palestine, both places where he has championed for the rights fo human beings, in order to show the consistency with these events that all resemble or are, cases of government terrorism.  Also, many people would not care if you extended your house in order to provide life sustaining shelter for people who need it.   It is questionable to me who the criminal is, I don't think it is the poor travellers.

Lot of romanticising going on here. I've been supporting them for some time but don't need to put them on a pedestal.
