Protesters march against eco-town

About 2,000 people have attended a protest rally against plans to build an eco-town at Ford in West Sussex.

People from surrounding villages turned out to hear speeches about the plans to build 5,000 homes on the former Ford Airfield site and surrounding farmland.

Protesters waved banners and posters and marched three miles along footpaths in countryside surrounding the site. Click here for more...

As co-chairman of CAFE campaign group, I would like to thank and indeed compliment all those who came along to the march and gave support, - it was a well-behaved, but determined meeting, with everyone telling me how angry they were about the government bypassing the local democratic system and the planning of our community from Whitehall.

Anyone who has a leaflet from us, about the March, please put a second class stamp on it and send to:
