The public footpaths that cross the farm have been closed, with security and dogs stationed either side of the stile, intimidating residents, walkers and passers-by on the lanes. There is no notice of any temporary closure on the Gloucestershire County Council website, so which authority(ies) have granted this footpath closure?
In other news, a video showing scenes of the eviction posted on facebook has been removed “per a report that it was unauthorized”. Also, Bennett’s solicitor sent a letter to wordpress asking them to remove this website and disclose the names and addresses of those who administer it (wordpress said they will not take any action for now).
What is going on down on the farm that Bennett is so afraid of people seeing?
What is he scared of being publicised online?
