COURT DATE SET
On Friday council officials visited The John lines Homeless Village with a notice to quit the land and gave until Monday for us to do so.
Yesterday morning (Tuesday) the officers returned to find we were still there and so went to court to get a hearing date.
This will take place in Birmingham County Court, Bull Street, Birmingham on Friday at 3.30pm. A gathering of supporters will meet outside the main entrance to the court at 3.00pm during which time leaflets outlining our cause will be distributed. Anyone wishing to join us will be most welcome.
It is JUSTICE NOT CRISIS intention to contest the eviction and call numerous witnesses in support of our case. Any neighbours close to the site that have particular comments, good or bad, please contact us so that your views can be made known to the court.
Updates here as soon as we have them.
