Urgent call-out: help block the bailiffs in Nottingham this Friday

Last year, a huge crowd gathered in Nottingham to stop Sue and Tom Crawford from being evicted from their home.

Hundreds gather on Fearn Chase in Carlton to stop bailiffs from evicting Tom Crawford from his home

Now, a second eviction attempt is scheduled for Friday 23rd January. The write-up below is by their son, and is taken from the event:

****Assistance Wanted:
3 Fearn Chase, Carlton. Nottingham, NG41DN
10am 23rd Jan*****
Hey guys! So the time has come for round two with these thieves who apparently are here to “help” us..
We knew it was coming, we just didn’t know when! An IMPRESSIVE turnout for the last one… Let’s try to best that! It hit all the papers across the country, even into some papers abroad!
They’ve waited till it died down… From the last attempt the eviction went onto ITV NEWS, The Wright Stuff and Loose Women!
It was very humbling to see so many great people attend and stand up for what’s right!
You’re all awesome! Even if you can’t make it.. We appreciate you!
If people can pass the word along, can get on twitter and any other social media sites. We’d REALLY appreciate this!
This isn’t just a battle to save our parents house anymore.. This is for us people as a whole.. People are working as we speak to beat these crooks!
How long it will take? We don’t know.. But what we do know is.. Is we’re the 99% and its about time the 99% ruled, rather than the 1% of shady, deceptive thieves.

If you can make it, please get down; if not, please spread the word to anyone you know who might be able to get there. This sort of self-organised mass direct action has already got the goods for the Crawfords once, there seems no reason why it can’t work again.

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
