Dale Farm Video – Gypsy Weddings

Dale Farm is the largest traveller site in Britain and is under threat of eviction.
The High Court has ruled in favour of Basildon council and the forced eviction of over a hundred traveller families from the land they own in Essex.

Four couples rushed to marry ahead of the court judgement.
The wedding of Nora Quilligan and Danny Sheridan took place on UN Human Rights Day – December 2008.
