Summary
For centuries the Roma have wandered Europe; during the Holocaust half a million were killed. Throughout the Troubles, thousands of Irish Travellers fled to England for safety. They found places to settle down - but then, as Occupy was taking over Wall Street and London, the vocal Dale Farm community was evicted from their land. Many did not leave their homes quietly; they put up a legal - and at times very physical - fight. Katharine Quarmby takes us into the heat of the battle, following the Sheridan, McCarthy, and Burton families before and after the eviction, from Dale Farm to Meriden and other 'outlaw' communities
