Irish Travelers, residents of the Dale Farm settlement, stand on a tower of scaffolding poles at the entrance to the site near Basildon, England, Monday, Sept. 19, 2011. Irish Travelers built barricades and chained themselves to cars on Monday to stop police and bailiffs moving in to evict them from their home. The conflict over the settlement has raged since 2001, when Travelers bought and settled on a former scrapyard next to a legal Travelers’ site. The local authority waged a long legal battle to remove them, which it finally won at Britain’s High Court last month. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)

Activists in solidarity with Irish Travelers who live at the Dale Farm travelers site stand on a van and scaffolding erected as part of a barrier at the main entrance at the site near Basildon, 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of London, England, Monday, Sept. 19, 2011. Local authorities are due to begin evicting families from Dale Farm Monday, after winning a decade-long legal battle to move some 86 families who lived in mobile homes on the site without proper planning permission.
