Battle for the Trees

£24.00

Product description

Published by Godhaven Ink (1996) Book Condition: Good. At Newbury there were 35 camps along the nine mile route of the bypass, with hundreds of people living there. The ingenuity and resourcefulness was staggering; the way these few hundred people with minimal resources could outwit and outmanoeuvre the might of the police, security guards and bailiffs sent to defeat them was so remarkable that at times it bordered on the comical. Merrick had been involved with several direct action campaigns before, but nothing on the scale of Newbury. He went in early January, two days after felling started. He had intended to go for a weekend. He stayed for three months.
