Within days, more than 200 people will be evicted from Dale Farm, the losers in a decade-long battle between local officials and their community of Irish Travelers that has drawn attention around the world and concern from the United Nations. The local authority says it’s a simple planning issue – the 86 families lack permission to pitch homes on the land. The Travelers – a traditionally nomadic group similar to, but ethnically distinct from, Gypsy or Roma people – call it ethnic cleansing.
