Breaking news from the Jericho 'Save the boatyard Campaign'

Oxford boatyard court demo

26.10.05
Our court case has been adjourned until such time as a judge can rule on our call for an adjournment for judicial review on grounds of British Waterways (BW) breaching our article 8 rights of the 1998 European human rights acts, by closing the boatyard. So we have now a stay of execution and an opportunity to adress BW policy on this matter. This is cutting new ground as a body of precident has yet to be set on the use of the human rights act, in fact The house of Lords have a tabled motion to debate whether citizens can use the act to defend against eviction. The high court does not currently concur but the european court does, the court of appeals has ruled in favour backing up the european court so the House of Lords must decide. The cases involved have revolved around the gypsy issue.

My trip to a 4x4 dealer's to put gas-guzzlers out of action, and leave a statement of solidarity with the planet and against petrol-wastage.
