Didcot power station trashing lakes - house squatted

Radley LakesHi all a group of us opposed to the destruction of Radley Lakes by infilling them with pulverised fly ash (PFA) from N powers coal burning Didcot power station, have squatted a large house on the edge of Thrupp Lake and are now in legal possession. Our intention was to use the house and its ground as a field center for locals and visitors, however N powers lawyers have been busy and they are in court on wed 10th of Jan to get this overturned and us evicted. We intend to resist this and need people to turn up who are prepared to help defend our stake in the lakes future, so if you get down there for the 10th or shortly after please do so, for updates call me on 07762733332.
